“Northshore is more than the working wharves where Queensland exported its best to the world. Today it is an ever-changing playground of innovation and creativity, effortlessly connected to city, sky and sea.
Northshore inspires new ways of seeing and interacting with the world. Famous for a festive, inventive food scene, Northshore pushes limits and alters perspectives.
Where flavour captivates. Culture provokes. And bold thinkers take charge.
A rejuvenating and sustainable lifestyle is embedded into Northshore. Repurposed structures and smart technology meet the expansive river edge,
while laidback green spaces flex between everyday activity and unexpected activations.
Set across a staggering 304 hectares, Northshore is bigger in scale, in ideas, and in discoveries. Every experience at Northshore invites you to dive deeper into the Brisbane way of life — and beyond into its future.”
Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) is a unique Government agency within the Department of State Development, Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning which combines property development, innovation and activation strategies with specialist planning and infrastructure functions to create places and investment opportunities for Queenslanders to prosper.
EDQ are the master developer for Northshore Hamilton with 30 years of planned development on the horizon.
With more plans underway, stage 1 of the Waterfront Development will bring this vision to life with fit for purpose projects that provide opportunities and spaces for tourism, creative arts and innovative enterprises, including flexible space for scale-up businesses enabling them to prosper during and beyond COVID-19 recovery.
The vision includes adopting a strong innovation profile, supported by attraction space to increase visitation, which will be best placed to generate greatest economic benefit to Queensland. Unlocking the potential of Northshore’s waterfront will set the foundations for the long-term success of the precinct and the businesses within it.
Only 10 years into a 40 year project, the next 30 years will see Northshore emerge as a vibrant $5 billion mixed-use city precinct. EDQ’s role as master-developer is to create an appealing destination for people to live, work and play; ultimately attracting greater interest and private sector investment from key elements of:
- Waterfront Placemaking – spaces and curated activities;
- Attract and support enterprise, innovation and tourism; and
- Land sales and infrastructure investment to facilitate permanent sustainable development.
Creating appeal and value in Northshore includes embracing the site’s rich history, opening and activating the waterfront, delivering a range of diverse and engaging spaces, curating events and activities, retaining and adaptively re-using warehouses with historical value, supporting tourism and innovation demonstration projects and collaboration with industry and tertiary partners.
Affirming Hamilton Northshore as a Priority Development Area, the state government has chosen the location to host a 14,000-bed athletes village for the 2032 Oylmpic Games.
The village will host more than 10,000 athletes and team officials for the Olympic Games and more than 5000 for the Paralympics.
The future of Northshore is burning brighter than with ever and BTP is set to reap the benefits of being at the centre of this thriving economic and cultural hub now and into the future.
