One of the many entrances to Brisbane’s most exciting redevelopment is taking form and will make a bold first impression for the visitors and guests of Queen’s Wharf.
Queen’s Wharf is breathing life into the heart of the CBD while creating a place to meet and explore from late-2022 with laneways, retail spaces, and food and beverage outlets that will welcome visitors from George Street into the precinct.
Expect to find canopies of sub-tropical plants, high ceiling, and a unique mix of timber and stone finishes all blended together perfectly to create a world-class integrated resort development with a uniquely Queensland aesthetic.
Nestled between Queen’s Wharf Residences and the Dorset and Rosewood Hotels the entry will be home to a striking atrium spilt over three levels.
Multiplex Project Director Dayne May said it’s exciting to see construction progressing on the public areas now that the basement structure has been completed.
“The main entrance from George Street is quickly rising above street level – scaffold is already higher than the site’s boundary fencing,” he said.
“We have already completed the street level floor structure where the future luxury retail boutiques will be located.”
“As construction moves upwards, scaffold is starting to form around the atrium – this will be one of the first things people see when coming to Queen’s Wharf.”
“Some of the large structural steel elements being installed weigh up to 11.5 tonnes and are 18.5 metres long – this gives you an idea on how expansive the entry off George Street will be,” Mr May said.
In late-2022 when the first stage of Queen’s Wharf opens, visitors will also be greeted by a water feature flowing through the entrance and continuing down to the expansive public space area next to the Brisbane River.
The George Street arrival plaza will also provide access to the new Neville Bonner pedestrian bridge across Brisbane River and landing at South Bank.
Over the next two years, Queen’s Wharf Brisbane will continue to transform what was once a government precinct into a breathtaking and vibrant retain, entertainment and dining oasis for locals and visitors, blending beautifully repurposed heritage buildings with stunning contemporary architecture.
