The Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) has released a call for expresssions of interests for the BNE Auto Mall in the next milestone for this project, as the earthworks phase of the 51.3HA development are now completed.
The Expressions of Interest (EOI) will be for the formal partner that will manage the track, entertainment, and events within the automotive precinct. The $1 Billion project project seeks to create a vibrant, mixed-use development, a new hub for events, experiences, research, innovation, retailing, business precinct and different options for motorists to test drive vehicles.
The BNE Auto Mall is envisioned to provide a experience that will revolutionise the way people experience vehicles prior to purchase and compare the performance in a variety of surfaces.
Gert-Jan de Graaff, BAC CEO outlined that this is an incredible opportunity for businesses to be part of a project that will revolutionise the automotive industry in Australia.
“Opening in 2024, BNE Auto Mall is the largest, most visionary, and eagerly anticipated mixed-use development of its kind in Australia, and it will be a game-changer when it comes to the way in which people buy and experience motor vehicles”.
“While Aviation is our primary purpose, we have always strongly believed that Brisbane Airport is a destination within itself and so much more than just an airport”.
“This landmark automotive precinct is proof of that, as it will provide exponential benefits for Brisbane and for Queensland well into the future”.
“I have no doubts that the expansive scope of this Expression of Interest will generate excitement and encourage innovative thinking that will help shape this unique, world-class automotive destination”, Mr de Graaff said.
The scale of the project is reported by BAC as the largest non-aviation project that has undertaken to date at the Brisbane Airport, which is situated on site that fronts both Moreton and Airport Drives, in proximity to the service centre and opposite the International Terminal.
