Only a few short weeks ago we experienced another devastating flood event in Brisbane. Many were forced to abandon their belongings and evacuate their homes and businesses, with one of most hard hit suburbs in Brisbane being Rocklea.
Remondis Australia one of the world’s largest recycling, services and water companies, was one of the Rocklea businesses that went under that weekend. Having been left with little to return to after the water receded Remondis needed to find immediate emergency office space to ensure business continuity with minimal disruptions. Remondis approached BTP by Graystone and within the span of a week BTP were able to accommodate them with a fully fitted 215m2 office including 2 internal private offices at their Westlink Green precinct in Darra.
Thankfully, the facilities in Darra were unaffected by the tremendous rain and flooding, and will reman the home for Remondis team while their Rocklea office repairs begin.

Mental Health Awareness week promotes the importance of mental health and wellbeing, to reduce associated stigma, and to celebrate the service of mental health workers. This year’s theme was, ‘Take Time – for Mental Health’. In order to encourage the tough conversations with colleagues, friends and family, BTP by Graystone arranged several activities throughout Brisbane Technology Park for people to part-take and enjoy taking some time for their mental health during Mental Health Awareness Week, Monday 11th to Friday 15th October.
Day one of BTP’s Mental Health Week was ‘Good coffee doing good’ with BTP by Graystone donating $1 for every coffee purchased from Sipon29 at 29 Brandl Street on the Monday of mental health week. Thank you to all those who took the time to treat yourself and your colleagues to a coffee and a chat. From this, we donated $170 to Beyond Blue to continue their mission to improve the lives of individuals, families and communities who are affected by anxiety, depression, and suicide.
On the Tuesday and Thursday of BTP’s Mental Health Week, there were early morning yoga sessions, run by local instructor Rikky from Lumaflow in Sunnybank. Rikky took attendees through simple, yet effective yoga flows to help improve overall wellbeing, stretch out the body and promote calmness before going into the work day. Once limbered up, participants then enjoyed a special post-yoga breakfast deal together at Black Ink café at 4 Clunies Ross Court.
To round out the week, the final day of mental health week concluded with a special visit from the Softy & Frosty Icecream van where tenants working within the precinct were able to treat themselves to the taste of nostalgia with a delicious soft serve icecream and an array of toppings.
The BTP Wellness Treasure Hunt was a daily activity that the tenants of BTP could participate in. Each day a box was hidden somewhere within the precinct, then a cryptic clue was shared in the Business and Technology Precinct by Graystone Facebook Page for the box’s location. This exercise was designed to encourage cognitive thinking, team work and the opportunity for tenants to explore the precinct while searching for the hidden wellness treasure box. The box was filled with items intended to support rest, and managing mental wellbeing including; healthy snacks, a stress ball, a 1 month subscription voucher to Audible, a gift card for Fitness First Eight Mile Plains, tea, candles and vouchers to spend at multiple eateries within BTP.
Overall, the week was a success, and we greatly appreciate all those who participated not only in the activities throughout the week, but in conversations surrounding mental health and wellbeing with their colleagues, friends and families.

“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.
