82 Eagle Street

82 Eagle Street followed on from the excellent results Winston Group achieved in Toowong with the Data#3 Centre and Technology One Centre, which are now vibrant commercial centres housing some of Queensland’s most successful businesses.

eagle-logo-overWinston Group assembled a locally based project team with a proven track record of the highest quality design, project management and tenant satisfaction.

Built in the 70’s, 82 Eagle Street was constructed to the highest standards and is in a superb location opposite the Riverside Centre in the heart of Brisbane’s CBD. Winston Group embarked on an innovative refurbishment that returned the building to its previous commercially desirable status. The refurbishments included a cutting edge lobby that is sure to turn heads in the CBD.

The project team included Matrix in construction, Nettleton Tribe Partnership in the area of architecture and the project was leased by leading CBD commercial agents.

Commercial office environments are vibrant places which stimulate thought, communication and ideas. Your office is a place of commerce, interaction, trade and a vital business resource. A well designed office environment generates an atmosphere of success and achievement.

Building on this philosophy, Winston Group identified Eagle Street in the heart of Brisbane’s financial centre as an ideal location.

Constructed to the highest standards and a symbol of innovation and design in its time, it is a classic. Winston Group believes that the resources of the past can help to inspire and give confidence for the future.

Architect’s Comment

“The 82 Eagle Street refurbishment signifies a re-birth of the design ideology of the 70’s. Sleek, crisp lines in the facade are accentuated by a new painting scheme of cool whites and deep charcoal highlight.

Although the ground level awning is transformed by the use of glossy, futuristic material in stark white, its new smoothly curved surfaces are consistent with the building’s original details. External columns are re-clad in brushed aluminium and accentuated by specific lighting. A sense of entry is provided by the full height, automatic glass door.

82 Eagle Street is about pushing the envelope of a person’s experiences and emotions while walking through the building. Its re-birth establishes the building as a boutique office complex in the midst of high profile corporate houses”.

Commercial Triangle Toowong

Before the Toowong Commercial Golden Triangle there was a dilapidated void. When Winston Group identified the opportunity, no new commercial office buildings had been offered in almost twelve years in the Toowong CBD.

A tired, obsolete building which was the then Legal and General Building in Jephson Street, the St Thomas’s church amenities in High Street and an unworkable, stalled church development application were identified by Winston Group for the development of a cluster of state of the art modern buildings in order to reinvigorate the commercial market in Toowong and bring together some of the states most progressive Information Technology companies. Also critical was designing the buildings in sympathy with a 120 year old church building considered at the cultural heart of Toowong.

The location around the Commercial Golden Triangle is now highly recognised as a prime commercial location. The buildings were sold on completion for $25.6 million collectively. We believe our achievements in Toowong represent a manifestation of the core elements of successful property development – successful implementation of visionary ideas, efficient use of capital profitable investment, innovative design and a greater community benefit.

Data#3 Centre

This existing 6,400m2 commercial office building was acquired by Winston group in early 1999. An extensive $2 million internal and external refurbishment program was immediately undertaken which was completed in early 2000. The building that had been seen by some as a local “white elephant” was completely repositioned in the market place over a 12 month period. The initial occupancy of 60% was increased to 100% in less than a year lifting the building from B grade to A grade status. Major Australian Information Technology company Data#3 were identified by Winston Group and leased over 2,000m2 as the building’s anchor tenant. The remaining space was leased to a spread of government and private sector tenants including ILab, a State Government business incubator and Taurus Software.

Technology One Centre

This new 3,300m2 state of the art office building in Toowong was completed in early 2000. Winston Group undertook the project speculatively and commenced construction without pre-committed tenants but with market research demonstrating that significant interest was very likely. Winston Group was convinced and committed to the notion that Toowong was a prime commercial location and that the Information Technology sector had not yet been effectively catered for in Brisbane. During construction the building was 100% leased to four quality tenants with Technology One Limited, a market leader in Financial services software committing as the anchor tenant to 1800m2 of space.

St Thomas’s Parish Centre

This building was constructed to provide offices, auditorium and functions amenity for the Anglican Church including a full commercial kitchen. Upon completion the building was acquired by the Anglican Church for $1.2 million. The redevelopment gave the church a much needed boost increasing the number of parishioners so much so that the then Arch Bishop, Peter Hollingworth officiated the opening of the Parish centre and the Technology One Centre when the building was completed. This project reinvigorated St Thomas’s church parish giving new life and viability to this important local landmark and providing a strategic commercial facility for the Church.

The Cannery

This former State Canning Factory, situated in the inner suburb of Teneriffe was transformed into a vibrant urban village of 205 residential apartments.

Only the second major development in the area and located one block from the river, the Cannery challenges perceptions on how to deal successfully with redundant and not obviously attractive sites.

The innovative design strategy and understated quality of the development continues to be very popular with owner occupiers, investors and tenants. The style and success of the Cannery has provided a local benchmark for other developments that followed.
