A development application has been for the huge expansion of outdoor activities, pop up events and projects integrated within an expanded Northshore Hamilton area.
The proposed land use plan prepared by Land Partners, seeks to facilitate the establishment and interchange of new temporary land use around those already previously constructed or approved over the next 6 years. It is understood that this is so the area is well used before the main Athletes’ Village for the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games is constructed.
It is proposed that the buildings, spaces and facilities might be utilised for a range of activities and events for varying frequencies, with the site updated with public realm improvements including landscaping, pedestrian movement, and lighting.

The planners at Saunders Havill Group state, “The proposal in no way seeks to compromise the development of the site in line with the ultimate intent of the Development Scheme, but rather seeks to activate – through the use of public spaces and repurposing of existing buildings – the waterfront at Northshore with the anticipation that community goodwill will build, prospective investors will gain confidence, and vibrant people places will result”.
“It is considered that the proposed new single development approval framework will give EDQ – Development and EDQ – Development assessment greater confidence in the establishment and on-going management of interim uses and associated impacts at Northshore”.
