Heritage Lanes – 80 Ann Street

Brisbane’s skyline continues to evolve with the completion of Heritage Lanes, located at 80 Ann Street. The impressive 35-level, 62,900 square metre office was completed in April 2022, is one of Australia’s smartest buildings.

Embracing leading technology and sustainability initiatives, it’s a true testament to modern architecture and pays homage to the history of Brisbane with thoughtful design.

Contemporary Combined With Heritage

Designed by Woods Bagot, Heritage Lanes takes into consideration the local climate, providing breathable spaces throughout that allow occupants to enjoy the subtropical weather of Brisbane. The building also pays tribute to the heritage of the site, which was once home to the old Brisbane Produce Exchange in the mid-1900s.

This is evident in the preserved heritage facade fronting Turbot Street, as well as the unique marketplace experience created on the ground plane, extending through to the main lobby on Level 1. This blend of contemporary design and historical reference creates a unique and captivating experience for those who enter Heritage Lanes.

“We designed 80 Ann from a deep understanding of the city and the site’s heritage as the former Brisbane Fruit & Produce Exchange. We had a strong desire to re-create the atmosphere of the marketplace and create a memorable destination for the people of Brisbane that feels quintessential to the city.”

Timber Click-on Battens in Vic Ash

Timber Click-on Battens line the ceilings throughout the expansive Level 1. Crafted from premium Vic Ash, a beautiful light toned timber, they bring loads of warmth and biophilic benefits to the space.

Woods Bagot specified the battens to be in a half flute profile, a very unique choice that we don’t see often. It looks really effective though, and lends a highly textural aesthetic across the interiors.
