UQ CBD Project

The Property and Facilities Division are currently undergoing facade works and internal refurbishments in 308 Queen St and 'The Towers' on 88 Creek St, Brisbane City. 

In late 2019 the Office of the Chief Operating Officer (COO) identified 308 Queen Street (308Q) and 88 Creek Street (88C) as suitable for UQ acquisition. This would confirm the University of Queensland as a preeminent tertiary institution with a permanent presence in the Brisbane CBD. The purchase of these building will see UQ more than doubling its footprint in Brisbane's CBD.

The property provides an opportunity to relocate the Business Economics and Law (BEL) Executive Education and MBA Program, School of Architecture Masters and Advancement engagement into a permanent, highly visible and prestigious location in the City. These new premises will allow BEL to substantially expand their offering. Additionally this facility will provide the School of Architecture with a teaching presence in the CBD and the opportunity for Advancement to better engage with the public, potential students, alumni and potential benefactors.

In February 2021 level 5 of 308 Queen St was completed and opened as the new School of Architecture Masters teaching space. The Ground floor is currently undergoing refurbishments, aiming for project completion in July 2022.
