In this edition:

Final assessment of submissions

The Queensland Government is completing their assessment of the submissions received from the final two proponents - Greenland Holding Group Company along with Crown Resorts and the Destination Brisbane Consortium (Echo Entertainment Group, Far East Consortium (Australia) and Chow Tai Fook Enterprises) - to transform an underutilised riverfront precinct within Brisbane’s central business district into a globally recognised tourist destination.

The preferred proponent will be announced in late July 2015.

Delivering the best outcome

By having more than one proponent submit their best offer to government, the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane competitive process has been designed to deliver the best outcome for Queensland. It has been modelled on successful processes undertaken elsewhere around the world and implemented to boost the Queensland economy.

Job creation for Queensland

The preferred proponent will comply with the government’s Queensland Charter for Local Content to ensure that local suppliers and service providers are given an opportunity to apply for future work.

Visit the project display

You can talk to a project officer at the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane display located on the Ground Floor, 63 George Street, Brisbane open 11am to 2pm weekdays (closed public holidays).

We will continue to consult with our many stakeholders to deliver the best possible outcome for Queensland.
