The Queensland Government last week said Brisbane is set for a massive jobs boost following the formal adoption of the development scheme for the renewal of the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane Priority Development Area (PDA).
The $3 billion Queen’s Wharf Brisbane Integrated Resort Development will deliver a world-class tourism, leisure and entertainment precinct for Queensland.
Deputy Premier and Minister for Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning Jackie Trad said the Queensland Government, developed the scheme which will support up to 2,000 jobs during construction and 8,000 ongoing jobs.
“This development will transform and rejuvenate the under-utilised south-western edge of the Brisbane CBD, attract significant investment to the city and most importantly, create jobs for Queensland families,” Ms Trad said.
The Queen’s Wharf Brisbane Priority Development Area development scheme provides the planning framework for the assessment of the Destination Brisbane Consortium proposal.
Public submissions to the development scheme supported the area redevelopment, the Government’s commitment to sub-tropical design and heritage protection and the delivery of improvements to the pedestrian and cycling network in the Priority Development Area.
“We invited the community, residents, and business operators to view the proposed development scheme and we received 37 written submissions,” Ms Trad said.
Queen’s Wharf Brisbane was declared a Priority Development Area on 28 November 2014 to facilitate the planning and delivery of an integrated resort development including a casino and other related development on the site.Go Back
