theatre, redux.

1 Feb

Thanks to a few people who helped me out on this one. The new building is the 179 Turbot Street Tower, designed by Cottee Parker in 2003/2004 and adjoins the Suncorp Plaza Building. According to skyscrapercity it is partly residential. According to a secretary that sits a few desks over, it’s also office space (whodathunkit, I work at the company that’s leasing the office space).

Still having a lot of trouble finding some photos, or even details, of the original theatre, so if anyone can help with that one, please feel free to e-mail them to me!

Here are a few 3D renders from ’04 of the building courtesy of one of the forum members at skyscraper city:

    I think it was the sire of the old Twelfth Night Theatre which is now in Bowen Hills http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twelfth_Night_Theatre

    I think it was also called the old SGIO Theatre, and the SGIO building was cleared to make way for the bypass. Search this doc for SGIO http://www.marketingcomm.qut.edu.au/cmpublications/links/links_summer2002.pdf . And it is also mentioned in the doc http://www.slq.qld.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0007/147850/Discover_Brisbane_architecture_-_Brisbane_Magazine_issue_2.pdf which looks very Interesting, I’d like to go check them all out.
