Changing the face of Brisbane’s waterfront

John Holland has just kicked off the first stage of construction on Dexus’ $2.5 billion Waterfront Brisbane project, which is set to revitalise connections between the city and the river.

The development will feature two new office buildings, premium riverfront retail and large public plazas, creating an iconic destination for locals and tourists.

In June last year, we were awarded the $850 million contract to deliver Stage One over the next five years. It includes construction of the North Tower, new riverwalk and public realm, and new integrated retail areas.

With sustainability front of mind, John Holland has committed to recovering 90 per cent of the material that leaves site by sorting timber, metals and concrete for recycling.

Through detailed construction and transport management planning, our project team is minimising disruption to the community. A dedicated Waterfront Brisbane app is providing regular construction and project updates to communities and stakeholders.

To mark the start of construction, John Holland recently joined Dexus, representatives from the Queensland Department of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships, and the Turrbal people for a cultural ceremony. Jahmarley Dawson, emerging leader of the Turrbal people, delivered a Welcome to Country before conducting a smoking ceremony to cleanse and bless the site. The Turrbal people are the Traditional Custodians of the lands and waterways where Waterfront Brisbane is being built.

We have a proud partnership with Dexus, following the successful delivery of 180 Flinders in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD, and look forward to that partnership continuing long into the future.
