25 King has been named the 2021 “Best Tall Building Under 100 Metres” by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat - CTBUH. The honour, awarded at an international level, recognises the best tall buildings around the world.
The building is a collaboration between Bates Smart, Impact Investment Group (IIG), Lendlease and Aurecon. The team is incredibly proud of 25 King in setting a global precedent for timber building and pushing for widespread solutions beyond concrete and steel in commercial developments.
Located in the Brisbane Showgrounds, the ten-storey tower combines the innovations of sustainable cross laminated timber (CLT) and the ‘Queenslander’ vernacular to create the tallest timber commercial building in Australia. Outstanding sustainability achievements include carbon neutral certification through Climate Active, a 6.0 Star NABERS Energy Rating and a Platinum WELL Rating.
