Brisbane is the capital city of Queensland and is also the most populous city in the state, with an estimated population of 2,582,000. This population also makes Brisbane the third most populous city in Australia. Covering an area of over 6,000 square miles Brisbane is classified as a global city and is a major centre of research and innovation.
Brisbane has seen numerous large scale construction projects over the past couple of years and has multiple large constructions projects in the pipeline, such as:
This project will see a new state-of-the-art entertainment precinct, Brisbane Live. This 18,000-seat cultural mega hub has been given the green light to take root right in the heart of the city at Roma Street. This huge project will also see new eateries, retail outlets, accommodation and extravagant outdoor amphitheatres.
The project, the largest private sector development in Queensland, is spread over 12ha of land and 15.3ha of water. The development, earmarked for completion by late 2022, will offer four luxury hotels, 2000 residential apartments and a casino. This project is estimated to cost $3.6-billion.
