480 Queen Street is a 153-metre (502 ft) premium grade office tower in Brisbane, Australia located at 480 Queen Street in the Brisbane central business district's golden triangle. The project was developed and constructed by Grocon, in partnership with Dexus Property Group.

A key design feature is a 1,400-square-metre (15,000 sq ft) park with river views on level four, open to all tenants and the public. As well as adding to the amenity for tenants, it makes a significant community contribution by preserving the river views from the St John’s Cathedral grounds. Other building features include 600 bike spaces and 45 showers to complement its proximity to the riverside bikeway, floor plates of up to 2,800 m2 (30,000 sq ft), about twice the size of other premium CBD towers, 1,600 m2 (17,000 sq ft) of retail at ground, second and fourth levels will include high quality food and beverage outlets designed to enhance the broader precinct and a rooftop tree grove at level 31.

It is intended to be 6-star Green Star and 5-star NABERS rated. 480 Queen Street has achieved early leasing success with 80 per cent of the building’s 55,000 m2 (590,000 sq ft) of office space leased to BHP Billiton, HWL Ebsworth, Herbert Smith Freehills, Allens, DLA Piper, PriceWaterhouseCoopers and Regus.

480 Queen Street is Grocon’s third Brisbane construction project and follows the Common Ground affordable housing project in Hope Street, South Brisbane and an office building for the Australian Tax Office in 55 Elizabeth Street completed in June this year.
