Weeks to build
NABERS Water Rating
Hutchies partnered with Ipswich City Council to deliver this world-class digitally integrated mixed use precinct in the heart of Ipswich’s CBD.
The project is home to a new purpose designed and built Council office building and chambers with an integrated environmentally rated fitout of 5 Star Green Star and 5 Star NABERS. Surrounding this building is a new thriving city heart for the community with a cultural precinct that includes a new state-of-the-art public library, retail tenancies, water play areas, a piazza and extensive underground carparking.
Hutchies has been involved in this precinct for almost a decade after building the $74M ICON Tower A development in 2011 for Leighton Properties. ICON was the first Green Star rated building in Ipswich and is home to several state and local government tenants. This has been a long term vision for Ipswich City Council to provide opportunity for community interaction, private economic growth and a resilient framework for future significant projects in the area.
Over the past 20 years, we have constructed 61 projects across Ipswich and employed and trained hundreds of locals – at one stage, just under 10 per cent of our 1700 strong workforce came from Ipswich.
Greg Quinn, Managing Director
This redevelopment will create a modern and vibrant CBD for the people of Ipswich and visitors to eat, shop and enjoy world-class amenities with family and friends. At the same time, the precinct will boost the Ipswich economy and bring new jobs to our city.
