ICON Tower Ipswich
Located at 117 Brisbane Street Ipswich, ICON Tower was completed September 2013 and is a key milestone in the Ipswich City Centre Redevelopment project.
The Queensland State Government committed to a 15-year lease of the A-Grade commercial space. Hundreds of additional government staff working in Ipswich result in a boost to the Ipswich economy and acts as a key driver in the transformation of the Ipswich CBD. ICON Tower also features retail businesses on the ground level.
We are now entering the most critical phase in the 10-15 year redevelopment of Ipswich City Centre. The next step in this transformational development following completion of ICON Ipswich Tower A includes a major retail space, commercial offices, entertainment venues, cafes and restaurants connecting the precinct with the Bremer river and parklands.
Council administration and a new library will also relocate to the CBD as part of the next stage of the Ipswich City Centre Redevelopment Project, expected to begin construction from mid 2017.
Fire Station 101
Ipswich is the city of people and progress. Fire Station 101 is the place where they come together to activate digital technology innovation, entrepreneurship and opportunity.
Opened in early 2016, Fire Station 101 is the Ipswich innovation hub for anyone with the ideas and the motivation to make it real. It is the place where people and business can meet, share, learn and grow as part of the South East Queensland start-up ecosystem. Fire Station 101 provides connections, tools and support for the start-up community to develop and deliver.
