Since announcing Northshore Hamilton as Priority Development Area, the Queensland Government’s vision to create an exciting urban precinct that provides Brisbane with alternative entertainment, lifestyle, incubation and employment options is well under way.
Once completed, Northshore will be Queensland’s largest inner-city waterfront urban development, spread across 304 hectares.
So much has already been achieved including: the upgraded citycat terminal, the installation of electric charging stations (in the carpark next to Eat Street), the delivery of four A-grade commercial office buildings (occupied by Puma Energy, Harris Communications, Fujitsu and Sandhills), the first-class Petit Early Learning Childcare Centre and a diversity of residential accommodation options, the development of the Deck (a community space which is open 24/7 with interactive display), the establishment of several recreation spaces (including the dog park adjacent to the Puma building) and significant road upgrades to create large, leafy boulevards.
The relocation of Brisbane’s tourism and leisure icon Eat Street from roots close to Portside to the heart of the Northshore re-development area in early 2017 has activated this area of the precinct.
There are no signs of momentum slowing with the completion of the Kingsford Smith Drive upgrade, with separated pathways for cyclists, scheduled for late 2019, six brand new tennis courts to be game ready by mid-2018 and works are continuing on the $10 million expansion of the Hercules Street Park which will deliver a sprawling lawn, fig garden, village green and waterpark facilities.
So much is happening at Northshore Hamilton but we think the best is yet to come.
