Coronation Drive Office Park Building 7 (CDOP7) will deliver a major new workplace environment with a projected new population of over 2,500 workers to the CBD fringe business centre of Milton. Central to this development will be the creation of a new public realm at the heart of the Coronation Drive Office Park (CDOP) precinct, strengthening links with the broader Milton neighbourhood and the city of Brisbane at large.
This first stage of a masterplanned redevelopment of the entire CDOP precinct incorporates the delivery of an urban common activated by outdoor dining and public recreation spaces, located at the heart of the renewed precinct, creating a major new outdoor public place serving the local community and visitors from further afield.
CDOP7 is proposed to be a 12 storey, 32,092m2 GFA ‘A’ Grade (PCA) office building with ‘campus’ style 2,390sqm floorplates. The design of the new commercial tower is intended to have a timeless quality and to actively engage with the subtropical urban realm. The development will ensure that Milton continues to evolve as a fringe business centre within walking distance of the Brisbane CBD.
Significant design components of the development include:
_A new, 1,300sqm urban common
_Approximately 26,548 m2 of net lettable office space over 11 office levels.
_Approximately 1,150 m2 of food retail space at ground level
_Targeting 5 Star Green Star and NABERS ratings.
_An offset centre core that allows a flexible and efficient floorplate
_Ground level permeability with three distinct entry points - from Little Cribb Street, the new extension of Railway Terrace and the proposed urban common.
_A dedicated cycle store and end-of-trip facility for building occupants and CDOP workers, accessed separate from the new building via a ramp passing under the canopies of a copse of fig trees.
_Retention and integration into the precinct design strategy of all significant trees on site.
_The relocation of one significant fig tree currently located within the proposed CDOP7 footprint to a landscape verge adjacent the CDOP9 carpark on the southern side of Little Cribb Street.
