Sitting at the corner of Turbot and Albert Street, the 24-floor building is dedicated to office space. Upon completion in 1971, it became one of the tallest skyscrapers in Brisbane.

The external renewal comprised a modern aluminium clad facade and extensively upgraded mechanical services. Meanwhile, there were new amenities on the ground floor such as cafes, an à la carte restaurant, a news agency and ATMs. The renovation has given the building a new lease of life and helped it achieve better occupancy. The building features a 10-metre digital clock featuring the logo of Suncorp, its primary tenant until the company moved to the Brisbane Square building. Soon, the plaza is undergoing a major change, as the local authorities proposed a new one to fulfil a wider range of demand, from office and retail spaces to sport and recreation facilities.
