POSTED 17 Aug 2023 BY LSH Property Australia - Marketing IN Innovation & thought leadership

It’s official, the Olympic and Paralympic Games will be hosted by Brisbane and greater surrounds. 

Showcasing the growing city on a world stage, the opportunities are endless with planning well underway. The shaping, reshaping and revitalising of the River City ahead of the games is now in full swing with a list of developments already underway and bold ideas being discussed. The games will drive tourism and international awareness to Brisbane and the entire region of Queensland.

Here is a list of just some of the key transformations that will drive Brisbane into the future and leave a positive lasting legacy. 

  • Victoria Park Transformation from a inner-city golf course to a 64 -hectare parkland
  • Eagle Street Pier’s revitalisation
  • Facelift of Queen Street Mall
  • Green Bridge Projects including a new luxury restaurant offering on the Kangaroo Point Bridge
  • The fully electric Brisbane metro
  • Kurilpa development heights increased to allow CBD-style residential buildings with stricter requirements on sustainability.
  • The Gabba Stadium knock down and rebuild, an estimated $2.7bn project
  • Redevelopment of Brisbane Arena estimated at $2.5bn located at Roma Street in the CBD
  • The Albion Sports Precinct opposite on of LSH Property Australia’s key Site being the Breakfast Creek Lifestyle Precinct.
  • Upgrade to infrastructure such as the Cross River Rail Project

The games themselves will instigate high levels of tourism resulting in an injection into the economy for South East Queensland businesses. Beyond this, there is opportunity for these projects to create lasting legacy for the games and thereafter to benefit the local community and business owners. 

First look at some of the infrastructure proposals for Brisbane City.
