The changing face of Brisbane
Brisbane has seen a number of large scale infrastructure programs complete in recent years, but it doesn’t stop there. The Kangaroo Point & Woolloongabba areas are set to receive the new Cross River Rail station. This crucial part of public transport will be an amazing addition to the local area.
Owners at Linton Apartments will also see upgrades to the Gabba Stadium and immediate surrounding precinct. And let’s not forget the newly launched Howard Smith Wharves and the incredible Queens Wharf project; all within a short distance from Linton Apartments. Finally, we expect to see the construction of the Kangaroo Point Pedestrian Bridge; allowing direct walking access to the CBD.
Cross River Rail Woolloongabba Train Station Precinct
The $5.4 billion Cross River Rail is a new 10.2 km rail line from Dutton Park to Bowen Hills, which includes 5.9 km of tunnel under the Brisbane River and CBD.
By unlocking the bottleneck at the core of the transport network, Cross River Rail will allow more trains to run more often to enable a turn-up-and-go transport system for the whole of South East Queensland.
Along with upgrades to Dutton Park and Exhibition stations, Cross River Rail will deliver four new underground stations:
- Boggo Road
- Woolloongabba – Less than 500m walk from Linton Apartments
- Albert Street
- Roma Street
Each of Cross River Rail’s high-capacity stations will generate unique opportunities for urban renewal, economic development and revitalisation of inner-city precincts helping Brisbane’s evolution as a world-class city.
Kangaroo Point Pedestrian Bridge
The proposed Kangaroo Point Pedestrian Bridge will just add the many reasons you would live at Linton. Originally proposed in 1800’s, the bridge has now been given funding to undertake its final business case.
When completed, you will be able to walk directly into the CBD from the Kangaroo Point/Woolloongabba area.
It’s only a picturesque 20 – 25 minute walk from Linton Apartments to the CBD.
A new world-class integrated resort development is being constructed that will put Brisbane on the map as a tourism, leisure and entertainment destination.
Expected to open in 2022, Queen’s Wharf Brisbane will transform the CBD and rivers edge with an iconic design that embraces Brisbane’s inviting subtropical climate and celebrates the precinct’s Indigenous and European heritage with interpretive trails and experiences spanning the Brisbane River.
Destination Brisbane Consortium is delivering the $3.6 billion development which will cover more than 26 hectares across land and water.
Watch as the new Queen’s Wharf Brisbane precinct transforms from an underutilised area into a breathtaking and vibrant oasis for locals and visitors, blending beautifully re-purposed heritage buildings with stunning contemporary architecture.
Howard Smith Wharves
Howard Smith Wharves; Brisbane’s newest entertainment and lifestyle destination is now open.
Celebrating the site’s unique position beneath the Story Bridge, it’s city and river views add yet another cultural dimension to our lively inner city. We’re creating a new riverside precinct loved by residents and visitors; a place to connect and celebrate the best of what Brisbane has to offer.
A re-imagined green space dancing on the edge of the bustling city, a beautiful backdrop for our vibrant new world. Howard Smith Wharves is now home to:
- Felons Brewing Co
- Mr Percival’s Overwater Bar
- GRECA Greek Taverna
- ARC Dining
- Wine Bar
Abundant green spaces, picnic areas, two unique indoor event spaces, additional riverside restaurants and a brand new boutique hotel coming in 2019 are some of the exciting new attractions heading to the area.
More upgrades are coming to the area. The Gabba is set for a major $100M facelift.
The sparkling changes include:
- A sprawling and elevated plaza entry
- Huge new scoreboards
- Six new gates
- Parkland that flows to a new train station
- State-of-the-art “media halo” projecting above spectators heads
Plans set forth aim to alleviate access issues with the addition of a newly raised pedestrian bridge connecting the current busway stop and the future site of the Cross River Rail stop at South Brisbane to a brand new forecourt.
Kangaroo Point Bicycle Upgrades
The Kangaroo Point Bikeway upgrade – stage 1 project is part of Council’s Better Bikeways 4 Brisbane program, reducing traffic congestion through dedicated bikeways and active travel options with a $100 million investment.
This investment is not only aimed at providing safer access for those who currently cycle, but also to significantly boost the number of people cycling.
The project will provide a safer environment for cyclists and pedestrians and plays an important role in Brisbane’s bicycle network connecting Brisbane’s Central Business District (CBD) with the southern, south-eastern and eastern suburbs.
