On Monday 16 November 2015 the Queensland Government reached contractual close on the $3 billion Queen's Wharf Brisbane Integrated Resort Development, representing a key aspect of the final stage of the procurement process, successfully delivered by the Department of State Development.

Destination Brisbane Consortium – The Star Entertainment Group (formerly Echo Entertainment Group), Far East Consortium (Australia) and Chow Tai Fook Enterprises – is now the contractor responsible for delivering the world-class tourism, leisure and entertainment precinct in the heart of the Brisbane CBD.

The Queensland Government in partnership with Destination Brisbane Consortium will deliver economic growth for Queensland with the creation of more than 2000 jobs during peak construction and 8000 jobs when the Integrated Resort Development is operational in around 2022.

The revitalised precinct will provide improved facilities for everyday use and public events, showcasing Brisbane to locals, interstate and international visitors.

The Queen's Wharf Brisbane precinct marks where Brisbane started over 190 years ago. The redevelopment area will become the hub that connects the defining parts of the city – the Botanic Gardens, the Queen Street Mall, the Cultural Precinct, South Bank, the Parliamentary Precinct and the Brisbane River.

The redevelopment area is state-owned land and is generally located between the Brisbane River and George Street and between Alice and Queen Streets. The area contains significant heritage buildings, a number of under-utilised government buildings as well as neglected riverfront land under the Riverside Expressway.
