What hotel options will be available?

Locals wanting a fun weekend escape away or visitors looking to experience the delights of a new-world city will be spoilt for choice with five new internationally-recognised brands coming to Brisbane, offering a combined 1000+ premium hotel rooms.

These iconic brands are The Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Rosewood, Dorsett and two hotels by lead consortium partner, The Star Entertainment Group. The development will also introduce Brisbane’s first six-star hotels.

What mitigations are being taken to manage the risk of flooding during construction and once operational?

The safety of our people and contractors is a priority. The construction of the site will meet all regulatory requirements. Our flood modelling demonstrates that all Queen’s Wharf Brisbane essential services are above the Brisbane City Council’s Q100 flood levels and flood mitigation measures, such as a flood gate, are part of the design. Destination Brisbane Consortium will work closely with its contractors and suppliers to ensure that measures are in place to prevent water or any other issue affecting the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane site.

How tall are the buildings in the precinct?

All buildings within the precinct will comply with planning requirements and the Civil Aviation Safety Authority’s height restrictions for the Brisbane CBD, which is approximately 274 metres.

What part of the precinct will be completed first?

The area proposed to be developed first is located between 1 William Street and the Goodwill Bridge. This will become Mangrove Walk and Waterline Park. They will offer people an improved cycleway, recreation area and a lovely river walk when it opens in late 2019.
