The Queensland Government is seeking a world class development. Queen's Wharf Brisbane will be a unique and vibrant new world city development that attracts visitors and investment, reconnects the activity of the Brisbane city centre to the river, preserves and celebrates Brisbane's heritage, and delivers high quality public spaces.

Queen's Wharf Brisbane presents a significant opportunity to create a world-class integrated resort development in an integral part of the Brisbane city centre. Queen's Wharf marks the place where Brisbane started 180 years ago, and is now the place where the history and foundations of our capital will be transformed into a contemporary expression of Brisbane as a new world city.

Queen's Wharf Brisbane will be the hub that connects the defining parts of the city - the Botanic Gardens, the Queen Street Mall, the Cultural Precinct, South Bank, the Parliamentary Precinct and the Brisbane River.

The Queensland Government believe this is a city building project with the potential to provide significant benefit to the State, transforming Brisbane into an internationally distinguished city.

Location

The redevelopment area is state-owned land, generally located between the Brisbane River and George Street and between Alice and Queen Streets.

The area contains significant heritage buildings, a number of under-utilised government buildings as well as neglected riverfront land under the Riverside Expressway.

Two designs revealed for the Queen's Wharf Brisbane

On Monday 22 December 2014 the final two proponents, Greenland Holding Group Company along with Crown Resorts and the Destination Brisbane Consortium (Echo Entertainment Group, Far East Consortium (Australia) and Chow Tai Fook Enterprises) unveiled their design concepts for an integrated resort development in the Queen's Wharf Brisbane precinct.

Releasing the concepts provides an opportunity to showcase how both projects meet the project's vision and objectives which were developed by the community - respecting the precinct's heritage and how a range of attractions will add to the vibrancy of Brisbane. The preferred proponent will be announced in 2015.
