Brisbane - Exciting Developments Planned

Recommended Posts

There are a number of development projects announced or underway in Brisbane that are projected to be up and running by 2022, each bringing its own unique quality to the city.

 

Below are some featured projects that will help take Brisbane to new heights.

 

1.Queen's Wharf

Queen’s Wharf Brisbane is set to attract new visitors and investment as it reconnects the activity of Brisbane’s defining parts of the city like the Botanic Gardens, the Queen Street Mall, the Cultural Precinct, South Bank, the Parliamentary Precinct and the Brisbane River.

 

Queen’s Wharf will include:

 

Five new hotels– including premium brands like the Ritz-Carlton

Three residential towers

A new department store

Approx 50 food and beverage outlets

A riverfront moonlight cinema

A Queensland Hotel and Hospitality School in partnership with TAFE Queensland.

The development is expected to deliver $1.69 billion annual increase in tourism and $1.39 million additional tourists per annum, along with $4 billion to the Gross State Product.

 

2. Northshore Hamilton

In the next 20 years, Northshore’s primarily industrial area will be transformed into a $5 billion vibrant riverside precinct. It will cater for 15,000 residents and become an employment hub for approx. 15,000 workers in retail precincts and office parks.

 

Northshore will include 2.5km of dedicated riverfront, with a mixture of parkland and community space. These spaces will complement the combination of residential, retail and commercial opportunities on site.

 

The initial works on this project have included 700 apartments across five towers and also includes retail and commercial space.

 

3. Brisbane Airport Redevelopment

Brisbane Airport Australia is currently on the way to delivering the country’s best runway system with the $3.8 billion New Parallel Runway Project (NPR). While the airport has some 100 other projects in the works for the next 10 years, this NPR is considered the biggest aviation project in Australia.

 

The runway’s pavement will be 3.3km long, 60m wide and will have 12km of taxiways. It will create 2700 construction jobs to complete by 2020.

 

4. Howard Smith Wharves

The Howard Smith Wharves project covers a 3.43 hectare riverside precinct which will connect the New Farm Riverwalk and the CBD and revitalise Petrie Bight.

 

Events such as cultural and food festivals will be hosted at the exhibition complex, which will include restaurants and bars.

 

The Howard Smith Wharves project’s key features include:

 

A dining, retail and tourism centre utilising the existing heritage-listed buildings

New public open spaces that may be used for markets and festivals

A 64-room, five-star Art Series boutique hotel

A hotel facade that blends into the cliff face with natural tones and textures to keep the iconic Story Bridge as the main focus

Underground carpark for about 350 vehicles

A 1500sqm exhibition space.

 

 

5. Brisbane Quarter

Brisbane Quarter encompasses a complete city block with Brisbane River views and will include Australia’s first purpose-built W Hotel, two levels of riverside dinning and luxury retail shopping beneath a 40 story Prime Grade office tower, as well as an 82 story luxury residential apartment building.

 

Tenants of the hotel will have direct access to Brisbane Quarter’s food and beverage precinct with alfresco dining overlooking the Brisbane River, some of Brisbane’s most exciting bars and restaurants, spa facilities and a rooftop park land.

 

The retail portion of Brisbane Quarter will likely attract international and interstate visitors and become a high-profile location opportunity for locals looking for a signature destination.

 

6. Brisbane Metro

While still in its early stages, the Brisbane Metro Subway system was a commitment by Brisbane City council to provide a reliable high-frequency transport system that will reduce CBD bus congestion, cut travel times and allow for the redirection of buses to improve services in the suburbs.

 

Brisbane Metro would run on a dedicated route linking Woolloongabba to Herston, utilising sections of the South East and Inner Northern Busways, and would remove up to 200 buses per hour in the morning peak from the Victoria Bridge.

 

When complete, the metro would be able to carry up to 30,000 passengers per hour and will run every two minutes, providing seven kilometres of safe, reliable, smooth and quick travel from Herston to Woolloongabba.

 

 

7. Brisbane Live

Brisbane Live is Australia’s response to New York’s Madison Square Garden, as a 17,000 seat world class arena which will showcase international superstar concerts and performances as well as world sporting events.

 

The complex will be built above Roma street rail lines and would make use of public transport facilities making it accessible to everyone in Brisbane.

 

Brisbane Live’s masterplan, which belongs to AEG-Ogden, a subsidiary company of AEG and the world’s largest entertainment venue operator, revealed that it will feature a sliding front wall that opens to reveal live acts on stage, and the $450 million arena will also include a 4000-capacity rock club and be surrounded by multiplex cinemas, restaurants and bars, and a giant screen and amphitheatre catering for around 15,000 people.

If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

How exactly is this too be financed? I would prefer to wait and see just what gets completed and what remains a pipe dream. Shades of Perth during the fast receding boom. Here we spent a fortune with debateable returns.

I think these projects will go ahead.  The Labor government under Palaszczuk has been returned, this time with a workable majority.   She has shown herself to be a pretty canny politician, and just sacked (kicked upstairs) her dud Treasurer.  The economy has been kept afloat after the end of the mining boom by the residential housing boom, largely a consequence of historically low interest rates.  Thus the government is looking to infrastructure.   Cross River Rail also deserves a mention.  Brisbane house prices are roughly half of those in Melbourne and Sydney, so interstate migration looks like picking up.  One million in Brisbane will buy you a pretty decent house within 5ks of the CBD.

There are 4 towers which have approval to maximum height including the Gold Tower which you have not mentioned. They are thinking of reviewing the maximum tower height which is controlled by the airport.

The airport extension is the most important for the city and includes the freeway extension too. There is also the extension of the Gateway merge and river mooring extensions too.

Brisbane chose us however im very glad to be here and we have seen a huge amount of new building work in our 4 years. We are in Bowen Hills so are nearly completely built in with new development besides the Homemaker approved and the old Courier Mail site being developed to include 4 towers, offices and media hub for Fox. Obviously Gas Works has exploded!

Exciting times

I think the outer suburbs and areas will start to boom property wise, 30 minutes from Ipswich gets you a brand new house on an acre for $299k. Roughly 40 minutes from Brisbane CBD there are some further on the Warrego for $399 for a 4 bed and 2 acres. Saying that you can buy some great acreage properties in the same area already set up for horses, livestock or dogs for around $550 for 40 plus acres.

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...
