Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley Police-Citizens Youth Club (PCYC) is a step closer to gaining a new multi-storey club facility following Development Approval for the project being granted.
The Queensland Government, in consultation with PCYC Queensland, held a competitive bid process that selected private developers Silverstone Developments to deliver the project.
Under the innovative agreement executed with Silverstone, the existing clubhouse, more than 50 years old, will be redeveloped into a new standalone building on part of its current site at 458 Wickham Street, Fortitude Valley.
Construction is expected to start in the first half of 2020 with the building to feature new boxing training, gym and basketball facilities.
The development will create jobs during construction and will be fully funded by Silverstone Developments.
PCYC plays an important community role in fostering the development of local young people through a range of services and programs, including sport, youth leadership and crime prevention.
