The Queen’s Wharf Residences display suite has been lifted seven storeys in the air as part of the $3.6 billion casino and resort complex development in Brisbane’s CBD.
Destination Brisbane Consortium project director Simon Crooks said the display suite, situated on the corner of George and Alice streets, would offer apartment buyers a taste of what was to come.
“Residents of Queen’s Wharf will be uniquely positioned to enjoy the best of Brisbane’s CBD being close to South Bank as well as having all the benefits that Queen’s Wharf provides at your doorstep,” he said.
“The luxury one-, two- and three-bedroom residences will have sweeping views of the river and CBD, while enjoying all the amenities you would expect of the city’s best residential offering.”
He said buyers were expected to take residence in the apartments in 2023.
“The visitors centre will have an amazing scale model, virtual reality, animated videos and interactive display for people to experience,” Mr Crooks said.
“On the ground level, there’s a coffee shop outside so people can walk along George Street and begin to walk into the integrated resort in that building and have an experience about what it would be like in three years’ time when we open.”
The precinct is set to have four luxury hotels, more than 50 bars and restaurants and 2000 residential apartments.
Mr Crooks said the Foreshore South, the riverfront area between the Goodwill Bridge and 1 William Street, was completed with an inner-city park, waterfront walkways and an upgraded bikeway.
“You’ll see all the riverwalk and the mangroves. You’ll see the cycleway like it’s never been seen before,” he said.
“Three years ago there was the original two-metre-wide cycle next to the river expressway, some mangroves and then the river.
“We’ve now got the river, walkway, mangroves and a five-metre cycleway and walkway as well so quite a change.”
The 500-metre foreshore would be open by October 30 this year while the wharf precinct was expected to open in late 2022.
