BREAKING: Police Investigation Shuts Down Bris City Street

Queensland bomb squad officers have inspected two "suspicious" vehicles left outside Commonwealth offices in Brisbane City.

Police were called to Waterfront Place, Felix Street, shortly after noon on Thursday and closed the street.

Two vehicles, including a silver, older-model Toyota Camry, have been checked by explosive ordnance officers using mirrors to inspect underneath.

A police spokesman told AAP two "suspicious" vehicles had been reported as having been outside the premises for several days, incurring parking tickets.

Police have been describing the incident to passersby as "a QPS operation" and stopping workers from entering nearby buildings.

Waterfront Place houses several Commonwealth offices and Immigration Minister Peter Dutton held a media conference just before the street was closed.

Waterfront Place staff said there had been no evacuations and the building where they worked could still be accessed from a riverside entrance.
