The development is built on the edge of the Brisbane River – how will it stand up to major weather events that result in flooding?
The Brisbane River Catchment Flood Study has been carefully considered during all design and planning stages of Queen’s Wharf Brisbane.
The study details have been at the forefront of the development’s design and have informed the heights for where essential services will be placed within the development. This means that services will be resilient to major flooding impacts to assist with continuity of operation within the arc shaped building and supporting towers (core of the development).
Where there is risk of flooding to public spaces closest to the river, Destination Brisbane Consortium has designed the public space surfaces to be durable, impact and flood resilient.
