Station Square Development
The project builds on major Government investment in the area, including the new Gabba Stadium, a centrepiece of the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games. It will be the doorstop of the Cross River Rail Woolloongabba Station and the Gabba Metro Station and includes facilities to complement the Games, including a public plaza for broadcasting sport and hosting activations.
The precinct will be transformed into a dynamic new urban village that integrates the heritage-listed Railway Hotel and Woolloongabba Post Office. The $1.2b urban renewal includes lifestyle focussed private and affordable housing, a new community park, a green bridge connecting to the Cross River Rail Woolloongabba Station forecourt, as well as a five-star hotel with executive suites and exclusive penthouse residences, two highly-amenitized commercial office towers and a multilevel F&B/retail plaza several landscaped open-air or mixed-mode terraces. The site is also directly adjacent to the future BCC Gabba Metro station giving the precinct unparalleled access to transit and creating active transport links to the city and beyond.
Trenert says the precinct will follow the lead of other successful urban renewals, such as James Street, West Village and Fish Lane, with substantial re-greening, quality architecture and boutique retail, making the Gabba a place that champions sustainability and creates a lasting social legacy.
Trenert Group Managing Partner Peter Priest says: “The development creates a new destination for the local, regional and global community that will set a benchmark for the city– an internationally appealing canvas for placemaking and unique experiences and public art that brings together sport, entertainment, culture, health, well-being and community that showcases Brisbane’s lifestyle.”
