Queensland Treasurer and Minister for Trade, Tim Nicholls has officially opened KSD1 at Hamiliton Harbour.
Developed in a joint venture by Leighton Properties and Devine Group, the five-level 6,500sqm commercial building is set to bring hundreds of new workers to Brisbane’s popular riverside suburb.
Leighton Properties Managing Director, Mark Gray, said the building brings to fruition a vision to create a new style of business environment within an iconic mixed use development.
“KSD1 offers a sophisticated workplace, all the local amenity of Hamilton and its surrounds, as well as proximity to both the Brisbane CBD and Brisbane Airports,” said Mr Gray.
“It is the fourth building to be completed in 36 months at the award-winning Hamilton Harbour development, following the completion of three residential buildings - Harbour One, Harbour Two and Riverside Hamilton – totalling 660 apartments.”
