12 Creek Street - The Annex development recognition
Taking inspiration from the historic fig trees and indigenous heritage, The Annex at 12 Creek Street takes workspace design to the next level and has recently been recognised for Commercial Development excellence as a Finalist in the upcoming 2020 Urban Developer Awards.
Michael Sheffield, Fund Manager of Dexus Wholesale Property Fund (DWPF) commented, “DWPF and Dexus’s latest development in Brisbane CBD is the first commercial building designed to Brisbane City Council’s ‘New World City Design Guide - Buildings that breathe’ strategy. The Annex is a unique new opportunity for smaller businesses to have a front door address in Brisbane’s Golden Triangle.”
Rising from the street level plaza to an exclusive rooftop Sky Terrace, The Annex makes an ambitious architectural statement. Located in the heart of Brisbane’s Golden triangle, boutique sized floor plates and flexible suites target innovative SME businesses seeking a core CBD presence in dedicated floors or smaller suites, customers include Hudson and McConaghy Properties. The Annex offers an exceptional workspace designed to enhance employee wellbeing and attract and retain the best talent.
The building’s scale, form and detail promote a genuine connection to the outdoors and creates an enriched environment for businesses, with cascading gardens and operable façades. Timber-clad and glazed inter-connected stairs along with a dramatic soffit canopy inspired by the iconic Golden Triangle fig trees combine to form a vibrant vertical village with alfresco spaces for customers and the wider community to enjoy.
Integrated ground floor terrace style seating incorporates public artwork “Grounded in the present” by local Indigenous artist Robert Andrew underneath the striking light-filled fig-tree inspired 45m x 23m soffit canopy. The artwork gestures to the historic creek and mangrove systems that run underneath the site. The art seamlessly integrates into the architecture, adding an additional layer to a new chapter in the lively ongoing story of the people and enterprise of the place.
The team behind some of Brisbane’s trendiest eateries will open their latest Comuna Cantina concept and a new Corbett & Claude café, creating a 7-day a week laneway and outdoor dining and drinking hot spot for Brisbane CBD.
