Queen’s Wharf Update: Construction Underway for Waterline Park

Brisbane is one step closer to having a new world-class entertainment precinct, with the major components of the Queen’s Wharf construction now getting started.

Top-tier contractor Multiplex has begun work for the building of Waterline Park and the Goodwill Extension area upgrade.

Multiplex won the contract for the development of the resort component of Queen’s Wharf. They will develop the main integrated resort’s facade, tower structures, 100-m sky deck, and a five-level basement car park.

The Brisbane CBD-based contractor will also work on the revamping of the 500-m stretch of the Bicentennial Bikeway from the Goodwill Bridge to the area behind William Street.

With the bikeway path construction and landscaping works being undertaken, a number of alignment changes should be done between 26 March and 31 May 2019. Reopening of the Bikeway is anticipated in late 2019.

Like the Bikeway upgrade, the Waterline Park construction is  expected to be completed by late-2019.

The $3.6 billion integrated resort development hopes to put Brisbane on the map as a tourism, leisure and entertainment destination.

As Queensland’s largest private single development, Queen’s Wharf is expected to bring in around 2,000 jobs during peak construction. Once operational, this resort is anticipated to create more than 8,000 job opportunities for Queenslanders.

It is being developed by Destination Brisbane Consortium, in partnership with The Star Entertainment Group, Far East Consortium, and Chow Tai Fook Enterprises.

In April 2019, Destination Brisbane Consortium buried a time capsule in the Waterline Park. It has various items that will be stored safely, until the time of revel in 30 years.

“We have deliberately chosen for this capsule to only be buried for 30 years so that many of the people who have contributed can hopefully still be here for when it is unveiled and they can reflect back on this event and reminisce about their contribution,” Project Director for the Consortium, Simon Crooks said.
