Project Timeline 2016

In 2016, Destination Brisbane Consortium finalised the detailed design of Queen’s Wharf Brisbane to enable the start of early works.

Comprehensive engagement with the Brisbane community also occurred throughout the year to ensure high levels of awareness regarding the start of early works, including the temporary closure of a section of William Street and the permanent full closure of Queens Wharf Road. In December 2016, the consortium appointed Probuild as the demolition and enabling works contractor.

Project Timeline 2017

In 2017, Destination Brisbane Consortium commenced demolition and enabling works on Queen’s Wharf Brisbane.

The demolition and enabling works involves hoarding the site for safety, securing and protecting the heritage buildings within the site, demolishing three non-heritage former government buildings and performing services work.

Project Timeline 2018

In 2018, Destination Brisbane Consortium will begin excavation work to remove around 600,000m3 of spoil.

This work will create the foundations for the car parks and basements of the core development, including hotels and public realm areas. Waterline Park and the Mangrove Walk are both expected to open to the public during the year.

Project Timeline 2019/20

In 2019/20, Destination Brisbane Consortium will begin installing above-ground infrastructure once the foundations are covered over.

Brisbane locals and visitors will begin to see the core development start to take shape as it rises above the ground.

Project Timeline 2021

In 2021, Destination Brisbane Consortium will turn its focus on the internal fit-out of the buildings in the development.

This work will include fitting out public realm areas, hotels, retail spaces and food and beverage outlets.

Project Timeline 2022

In 2022, Destination Brisbane Consortium expects to open the core integrated resort development.

The final detailed design features will be installed to bring Queen’s Wharf Brisbane to life.

Project Timeline 2024

In 2024, Destination Brisbane Consortium expects to complete the transformation of the heritage Treasury and Land Administration buildings (currently housing Treasury Brisbane).

These iconic buildings will reopen as an exciting high-end retail centre and The Ritz Carlton Hotel respectively.

People, environment and heritage

Destination Brisbane Consortium‘s $3 billion construction of Queen’s Wharf Brisbane will be one of the largest projects Queensland has ever seen, spectacularly transforming Brisbane CBD’s landscape forever.

Today, Queen’s Wharf Brisbane contains a number of underutilised heritage buildings, obsolete government buildings and neglected riverfront land under the Riverside Expressway in the CBD.

Extending from the current Treasury Casino building at the top of the Queen Street Mall to Alice Street, and from the Brisbane River’s edge to George Street, the precinct covers more than 26 hectares across land and water.

Our consortium’s development is unique in nature given its significant size and scale; the precinct’s European heritage buildings in the area to be beautifully restored and repurposed; its CBD location; and close proximity to the Brisbane River.

We will work closely with our employees, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, the community, local authorities and governments to implement best practice development procedures and measures during construction and once operational.
