Urbis congratulates the Destination Brisbane Consortium led by Echo Entertainment Group, on winning the Queensland Government’s tender to redevelop Brisbane’s Queen’s Wharf precinct.
The Consortium, made up of Echo Entertainment Group, Far East Consortium and Chow Tai Fook Enterprises, was announced as the bid winner last night by Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk.
The multibillion-dollar development will stretch 10 blocks across the south end of the Brisbane CBD, completely reshaping the river waterfront. It involves building a new integrated casino resort complex, transforming the Treasury into a boutique department store and hotel, and rejuvenating 12 football fields of public space among many other exciting new features.
Echo Entertainment Group commissioned Urbis in 2013 to assist in preparing and coordinating their initial Expression of Interest submission and then the critical detailed master plan component of the tender process.
