Plans to transform Brisbane’s Northshore Hamilton into a vibrant village hosting thousands of athletes for the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games made headway today after Queensland Deputy Premier Steven Miles approved an expansion of the development area.

The amendments to the zone – known as the Northshore Hamilton Priority Development Area – follow public consultation and will see an additional 1.2km of waterfront added to the project.

The new precinct will host 10,000-plus athletes and team officials for the Olympic Games and roughly 5,000 for the Paralympic Games. Following the major sporting events, the area will be converted to provide 1,750 apartments, as well as a commercial and retail space.

Queensland deputy premier and planning minister Steven Miles said the project will be one of the biggest contributions of Brisbane riverfront parkland since South Bank was established.

“A new commercial heart will be located along Macarthur Avenue to take advantage of increased foot traffic and maximise the invaluable new riverside parkland,” Miles added.

Spanning 304 hectares, Northshore Hamilton is Queensland’s largest waterfront urban renewal precinct and will support a mix of retail, residential, entertainment, cultural and commercial uses.

The development has roughly 3km of river frontage and will include upgrades to roads and public venues. Situated 6km from the Brisbane CBD, Northshore is also close to Brisbane Airport and the Australian Trade Coast precinct.

Miles added the area would also help meet housing demand.

“It’s estimated Northshore Hamilton will have over 14,000 dwellings and be home to over 24,000 residents, to help meet south-east Queensland’s fast-growing population,” he said.

Since 2008, 64 hectares of land on Northshore is owned by Economic Development Queensland (EDQ), which was established to lead and deliver infrastructure and property projects for the state's economic benefit.
