LIVING IN THE HUB OF TWO OF BRISBANE’S MOST SOUGHT-AFTER CULTURAL, ENTERTAINMENT AND DINING PRECINCTS YOU CAN NOURISH YOUR MIND AND BODY WITH A LANDSCAPE OF ART, TRADITION, MUSIC, FOOD AND MORE.
Brisbane Metro and Cross River Rail - Woolloongabba PRECINCT Upgrade
Linton is now easy access to the Cross-River Rail, its just 7 minutes’ walk as the new train system creates new train capacity for Brisbane as it evolves and grows as a city, it will ensure high-capacity train stations. The Woolloongabba station will serve large events as well as providing year-round services for local residents and business. The 10.2km, $5.4B project running from Dutton Park to Bowen Hills will provide the New World City Infrastructure required for the prosperous years ahead for Brisbane, helping get the 90 000 people travelling in peak hour daily to work on time.
Cross River Rail’s new station at Woolloongabba has the potential to transform not only how fans access The Gabba on game days but also the wider station precinct, creating a new urban village at the heart of Woolloongabba.
Greater Brisbane Lifestyle Upgrades
A proposal for a $2 billion entertainment precinct located on the top of Roma street would see a state-of-the-art arena with a 17 000 person capacity developed, and open up many possibilities for the entertainment industry, bringing a big boost to the local economy. These types of projects give Brisbane the ability to brand itself as a desirable city to live, work, and play, and will create many more opportunities.
Other projects that will add value to the Brisbane economy include the $110m Howard Smith Wharves, the Queens Wharf ($3bn) project which will deliver over 1,000 hotel rooms across five hotels, 50 bars and restaurants and a pedestrian bridge connection to Southbank. With over $12bn in projects in Brisbane’s Inner CBD, it’s no wonder Brisbane is set to become Australia’s most desirable city.
