180 Ann Street
Brisbane QLD 4000
The river city is setting a new standard in architectural and sustainable commercial design, with the completion of 180 Brisbane in 2015 creating a true landmark in Brisbane’s most central and connected precinct.
Designed by renowned architects Crone Partners, 180 Brisbane’s eye-catching façade showcases the Brisbane River. The 34-storey building offers 58,000sqm of A-Grade commercial space as well as a convenient retail precinct, parking, bicycle racks and end of trip facilities.
Featuring exceptional smart technology and environmentally sustainable design features, it is the first commercial building in Brisbane to achieve a 6 Star Green Star Design Rating and 6 Star Green Star As-built Rating by the Building Council of Australia, and is targeting a 5 Star NABERS Energy rating.

Crone believes buildings can stimulate our senses, encouraging us to look up, breathe in and absorb our surroundings. The best of them stand testament to the rich history of a locale, and embrace its future excitedly, both hands ready. It’s easier said than done, of course, which is why our team are constantly researching and fine tuning their methods. We’ve found intelligent architecture unites technology, sustainability and human emotion—and our decades-strong networks in the design and construction industries help us achieve that balance faster. Communities are changing. The way we relate to others is elastic, constantly shifting and evolving.
Working with a complex inner-city site, Crone overcame multiple site constraints to achieve a light, airy commercial building in tune with the modern workplace. By using the liftcore as a structural beam, Crone was able to span the railway easement, allowing a larger floor plate that maxmises tenant flexibility, outlook and natural light. Different glass frits modulate the light on different edges of the building, and give 180 Brisbane by Daisho its distinctive “Brisbane River” facade. A glass canopy protects the new through site-link, activated by retail.
