Pradella is delighted to announce construction has commenced on the first stage of a $125 million dual tower community centred around the city’s iconic SkyNeedle.
SkyNeedle, an 88 metre pillar, was a key feature of Brisbane’s World Expo in 1988, and today remains a prominent marker on the city skyline.
Pradella director Kim Pradella joined Brisbane Lord Mayor Graham Quirk to officially launch the start of construction on the first tower, comprising 110 apartments. Mr Pradella says SkyNeedle will be a transformative project for Brisbane.
“We are taking an internationally recognised symbol of Brisbane’s foray onto the world stage with Expo and making it the hero of a project that will be a marker of Brisbane’s next ‘coming of age’,” he said.
“Next year marks the 30 year milestone since SkyNeedle made its debut at Expo 88, which is fitting as we expect the first 11 level tower to reach completion by late 2018/early 2019.“
Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said the SkyNeedle had been a much-loved icon of Brisbane for nearly 30 years and it was exciting to see it returning to its true home in South Brisbane to be restored to its former glory as part of a high-quality residential project with Pradella.
