Queensland Premier Anna Bligh, announced two major projects, the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre expansion and Stormwater Harvesting project. The stormwater harvesting project will provide an alternative water supply source for the maintenance of the Parklands and reduce its reliance on potable and purchased recycled water currently being trucked in.
The Stockwell development on 199 Grey Street was completed.
Early works on the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre expansion commenced. The expansion will activate Grey Street, link the centre with South Bank Parklands and introduce a new public space with a mix of retail and shopping experiences. Upon completion, the expansion will provide an additional 42% in event space with 18 additional meeting rooms, a large function room complete with an extensive terrace, city and river views.
