    Northshore Vision
    “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.

  • Biomedical Facility for Northshore Hamilton

    Northshore Hamilton will become the homebase of a medical facility that will create needle-free vaccines for COVID-19. The proposed site at the Northshore Hamilton Priority Development Area is expected to bring 139 jobs and $497 million to the Queensland economy, with active production spanning 10 years.

     

    Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced the partnership with Vaxxas, the manufacturer of the High-Density Micro-projection Array Patch (MAP) vaccine. A building from the Economic Development Queensland will be prepared for the medical company before the vaccine manufacture of 300 million patches every year beginning in 2022. 

    “For every parent worried about the anxiousness that comes with the delivery of a vaccine to a child through a shot, this technology has the potential to eliminate that anxiety,” Treasurer and Infrastructure and Planning Minister Cameron Dick said.

    Mr Dick also said that this facility will be significant to the economic recovery of the state from the pandemic as Queensland will attract highly-skilled jobs and advanced technology manufacturers.

    Due for completion by Q2, 2022, Vaxxas will be repurposing 4,000 square metres of warehouse within the Northshore Hamilton precinct into a biomedical facility providing offices, labs and cleanrooms.

    The advanced technology entails a dry-coated vaccine patch to be applied to the skin. The vaccine deposits into the skin’s immune cells, which will create an efficient immune response. A doctor or a nurse won’t have to administer the patch.

    Clinical trials at Australia’s Translational Research Institute in Woolloongabba show that the needle-free vaccines produce six times more antibodies within a short period compared to vaccines administered through the needle. 

    Vaxxas’ new vaccine has the support of the World Health Organisation, the pharmaceutical company Merck and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

    The Graystone construction team have returned to BTP Northshore to deliver the fifth commercial office building at the precinct.

    Once complete, 385 Macarthur Avenue will provide more than 3,500 square metres of lettable area across three levels and target a 5 star NABERS energy rating.

    The property will feature high quality internal finishes and include a luscious green ‘third space’ outside the building to deliver additional shaded informal meeting and recreation areas. Located on the doorstep of the recently completed Kingsford Smith Drive bikeway, resident tenants will benefit from premium end of trip facilities and bicycle storage.

    Interest in the project has elevated with increased demand from traditionally CBD occupiers looking to relocate to more “COVID-safe” buildings with higher car parking availability in the suburbs. Spaces are filling fast, with tenancies still available from 200-2,000 square metres and available from July 2021.

  • SEQ URBAN PRECINCTS REPORT: Reveals confidence in market recovery

    November 3rd, 2020 | by

    South East Queensland’s suburban office market has demonstrated remarkable resilience in 2020, with a new survey highlighting the underlying confidence in the state’s economic recovery, plans for growth, and their top policy priorities in the upcoming State Election.

    Graystone’s inaugural South East Queensland Urban Precincts Report surveyed 105 tenants across its three Business Technology Precincts (BTP) – Brisbane Technology Park in Eight Mile Plans, Westlink Green in Darra and Northshore Hamilton.

    The survey captured tenant views of their business performance in Q3 2020, future outlook, and the election priorities most important to the sector.

    Respondents across the three BTP precincts comprised a range of small, medium and large businesses of 1 – 5 employees (42.3%), 6 – 15 employees (17.3%), 16 – 50 employees (26.9%), 51 – 100 employees (7.7%) and over 100 employees (7.7%).

    Of these, 44.2% said they planned to increase their workforce in Q4 2020.

    Attitudes towards SEQ’s economic performance were surveyed across four indexes for Q3 2020 with the findings summarised below.

     

     

     

     

     

    Respondents ranked job creation as the most important policy area in the upcoming State Election, followed closely by small business subsidies/concessions (i.e. electricity), and at equal third – border openings/supply chain restoration and maintaining strict health controls.

    Graystone’s Director of Developments & Property Management, Kirsty Heymink said BTP’s tenants and employees are uniquely positioned to share their sentiments and insights as the focus on market recovery looks to the suburbs for solutions.

    “The open format of suburban office parks and limited reliance on public transport offsets many challenges created by COVID-19 in our CBDs,” Ms Heymink said. “In this regard, suburban office parks have incredible appeal. Their expansive outdoor areas, low density, surplus parking and accessible urban setting enables businesses to spread their workforce across larger, more flexible spaces within one expansive precinct.

    “This approach enables companies to keep some degree of separation between team members without having to sacrifice productivity and collaboration.”  

    Tenants who participated in the survey ranked on-site parking, staff convenience and access to major transport networks as the top three drivers for basing their operations from a suburban business park, followed by lease rate differentiation/value, flexibility of scale, and proximity to clients.

    Thirty-five per cent said a CBD location provided no additional benefit to their business.

    The SEQ Urban Precincts Survey will be released each quarter to index business confidence, policy priorities and growth in SEQ’s suburban office market and share the findings across the sector.
