Game Changers for Brisbane

By Landsdale Property Group on October 21, 2016 in Property Hotspots | comments
Massive growth in Brisbane's CBD, brought on by major developments across the city, is set to almost completely transform the Queensland capital by 2022.

Brisbane Lord Mayor Graham Quirk has described the year as a "game-changer for the city", with a string of major projects set to be delivered in six years' time.

Given the scale of the projects, it was clear that (barring any unforeseen construction difficulties) Brisbane in 2022 would be a very different city to the one seen today.

More than $10 billion worth of major projects were due to be completed in 2022, including the Queens Wharf casino and entertainment complex, the Howard Smith Wharves redevelopment and the Brisbane Quarter on the site of the old Supreme Court building.

"Projects of this size take years to come to fruition and we have been working on them behind the scenes for a long time," Cr Quirk said

"Well-considered planning over many years is now delivering.  Several major projects and infrastructure works are moving forward at the same time and they will collectively change the face of the city."

That change was demonstrated in graphic detail in images provided by Brisbane Marketing, which showed a city transformed by development from several angles.
