A new outdoor space 35 metres above street level complete with palm trees, swimming pools and an outdoor cinema is set to redefine the city.
The recreation deck on the podium’s level seven will be an impressive mixed-use space with amenities for hotel guests and the public, covering an area of 12,000m2, equivalent to more than two football fields of space.
A spectacular public space, with terraced seating and lush sub-tropical landscaping, will be open for everyone to enjoy – a place to bring the family for sunset picnics and twilight movie nights.
An outdoor area for movies under the stars with a removable projector screen will be surrounded by striking landscaping, including giant Bird of Paradise, Frangipani trees, Native Gardenias and Poinciana.
Food and beverage options, an events pavilion and pergola will also feature on this level ensuring something for everyone.
Direct access from level seven will be available to the Sky Deck, Queen’s Wharf Residences, The Dorsett hotel, Rosewood and The Star’s Grand hotel.
For The Grand hotel guests, they will enjoy exclusive access to three resort styled pools, luxury lounge beds, large LED screens and a seated pool bar with city views.
The hardest decision for hotel guests will be which lounge chair to choose from, with options surrounding the three pools, underneath palm trees on the terraced steps and half sub-merged lounges in the spa pool.
Multiplex Senior Project Manager Rick Woodford said works were progressing well on-site.
“The structure of The Grand hotel room floors have commenced above where the pools will be located on level seven.
“Construction will really start to accelerate now as we move onto the typical floors of both the Queen’s Wharf Residences, The Star Grand hotel, Dorsett and Rosewood hotels this month.”
As part of the Integrated Resort Development, contractor Multiplex is building the basement levels, four tower structures, facades, podium levels and Sky Deck that will be 100 metres above the ground.
The $3.6 billion Queen’s Wharf Brisbane development is being delivered by Destination Brisbane Consortium – a joint venture led by The Star Entertainment Group alongside its Hong Kong-based partners, Chow Tai Fook Enterprises and Far East Consortium.
