The QWB is the biggest project Brisbane has seen in its recent history.
Published On : 24 Feb 2020
The Queen’s Wharf Brisbane (QWB) is an integrated resort that will comprise of residential apartments, hotels, restaurants, casinos, retail shops and event spaces. The $3.6 Billion project is being developed for and funded by the Destination Brisbane Consortium. When completed QWB will occupy 20% of Brisbane’s CBD, be home to 4 luxury hotels, a casino, 50 bar and restaurants, and 2000 homes.
With construction well under way, the first stage is due to be completed by the end of 2022.
As of December last year, there were 250 construction workers building what is going to be Queensland’s largest underground car park. The workforce was set to double at the end of 2019/start of 2020. At its peak, the project will employ some 2000 construction workers.
Lots of new construction jobs are to come up in the coming few months, as construction ramps up on site. The footbridge connecting South Bank and the precinct is due to start in Feb 2020.
The precinct will become a city hub that connects the Botanical Gardens, South Bank, the Cultural Precinct and the Brisbane River. Once completed it is expected to bring in 1.69 million visitors a year.
The Queen’s Wharf Brisbane project is the biggest project Brisbane has seen in its recent history.
