The merger of two old government buildings (Health and Forestry House) involves the infill of the 20-meter space between the existing building forming one floor plate. Once combined, the existing 19-storey building is then extended to 26 levels with a common floor plate to form the Midtown Centre building.
The original heritage façade on the Charlotte Street side, which dates to the 1890’s will be restored and retained as part of the project.
The combined building provides large floor plates that incorporate an abundance of natural light as well as a 3-level mixed mode ventilated atrium and 840sqm sky garden on level 20 featuring Queensland sub-tropical landscaping and terraces. The new Midtown Centre will deliver a 5-star Green Star rating as well as a Silver Well rated core and shell.
