Brisbane’s waterfront face-lift continues with prime land release.
The Minister for Economic Development Queensland (MEDQ) has released just over two hectares of prime waterfront land to market as part of the urban renewal project underway in Brisbane’s Northshore Hamilton.
Jeff Seeney MP, Deputy Premier and Minister for State Development, Infrastructure and Planning said Northshore Hamilton’s Civic Park development site was an exciting opportunity to develop a landmark waterfront site as part of the $5 billion development of the area.
“Once completed, Northshore will be Queensland’s largest master planned waterfront community, and this new opportunity is the latest stage in its transformation. The Civic Park precinct will be a showcase within Northshore, reflecting world-class urban design and architecture,” Mr Seeney said.
“About 720 apartments and 25 business premises could be built as part of the redevelopment, creating and estimated 1,600 new construction jobs.”
A design has already been mapped out for the site, which will bring together existing Hamilton precincts and incorporate an urban waterfront park.
Northshore Hamilton is currently being developed on 304 hectares of land, formerly used as Brisbane’s working wharves. The precinct is located approximately six kilometres north-east of Brisbane’s CBD and has easy access to the Airport.
The environment has been master planned by award-winning international design practice Anderson Hunter Horne and the site has an approved Sub Precinct Plan in place to guide development densities, the siting of buildings and proposed heights.
There are already 2,000 residents on the Northshore Hamilton site, with approximately 4,000 apartments due to be completed by 2024. The plan for the precinct is to house 15,000 people by 2030.
Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) is seeking expressions of interest from suitably experienced development groups to implement the state government’s vision for a world’s best practice urban development on the site.
