Plans have been launched for a four tower medical precinct in Brisbane which aims to boost the cities health facilities in the wake of COVID-19.
Developer, Gansons, has officially launched a DA for the project, located adjacent to the Inner City Bypass, which includes one 14-storey tower and three 8-storey towers.
The medical masterplan, designed by Red Door Architecture, looks to increase the number of health services available to the people of Brisbane, whilst also creating construction jobs during the build process.
“The recent and ongoing public health situation has highlighted the need for health care services in south-east Queensland, both now and into the future,” a Gansons statement read.
Located at 12-18 Thompson Street, in Bowen Hills, the new precinct will also be home to 8,382 sqm of office space, for vital healthcare services, research and technology.
The development for new medical facilities and associated activities will improve the community’s access to a range of health care services to meet this need.Gansons Statement
The development application also shows significant consideration given to green spaces and sustainability with a large solar farm on the roof of Tower 1 as well as a rooftop garden and charging facilities for electric vehicles.
