John Holland Group has secured the contract to develop the first stage of the iconic Waterfront Brisbane development, in Queensland.

The project will transform the existing Waterfront Place and Eagle Street Pier site into a global-standard business and tourist destination.

The $2.1 billion transformation of the Eagle Street Pier and Waterfront Place precinct received development approval from Brisbane City Council in 2020.

The two-stage project includes two new office towers, premium riverfront dining, enhanced retail offerings and more expansive public spaces, with a widened and upgraded riverwalk for pedestrians and cyclists. Active transport will be enhanced with the new Riverwalk delivered by the Waterfront Brisbane project that connects the city to the water.

The project’s first stage includes the design and construction of: The North Tower comprising approximately 72,500sqm NLA of premium-grade office space, new Riverwalk and public realm and new integrated retail areas.

The project is expected to set a global standard in sustainable construction and outcomes, targeting a 6-Star Green Star Buildings V1 rating, NABERS rating targets of 5.5-Star Energy, 4.5-Star Water and 4-Star Waste, as well as targeting WELL Core Gold certification and a Climate Active Carbon Neutral Building certification.

John Holland CEO, Joe Barr, said he is proud that John Holland will play a part in transforming Brisbane’s waterfront.

“We look forward to creating an iconic precinct that will breathe new life into this prime riverside location, while attracting new investment and local and international tourists,” he said.

Australian real estate group, Dexus, will be leading the development.

The Riverwalk will close when construction commences and reopen in 2024. Stage one of the project will commence this year with expected completion in 2027.
