WORK will begin within weeks on building the multi-billion Queen’s Wharf development set to transform the Brisbane cityscape.
Australian-based global construction giant Multiplex has been awarded preferred contractor status for the major components of the $3.6 billion tourism precinct in the CBD.
It will include the main integrated casino resort building with its eye-catching arc-shaped facade overlooking the Brisbane River and the iconic 100m-high Sky Deck with 360-degree views of the city.
The contract also covers three high-rise towers to house luxury hotels, eventually providing more than 1000 rooms plus dining and retail facilities, and an apartment block.
The building fit-outs will be done later under separate contracts.
