Other comments Tightly held heritage listed building which was Brisbane’s first high rise building and has maintained the iconic style of its time. It is still held by Company Title which was the predecessor to Strata Title. The Garden Block was also the first in Queensland to use lift slab construction where the floors and ceilings were prefabricated on ground and lifted into position.
