Brisbane Airport Corporation has submitted a major development plan for a new hotel precinct located at the domestic terminal.
The proposed hotel development site is located on Dryandra Drive on a existing car park currently being used for a public pick up waiting area and over height vehicle parking.
It is located beside the long stay multi-level car park at the Brisbane Domestic Terminal. The key aspects of the hotel development include:
- A 5 star hotel that is to include 10 levels of accommodation and offer in the region of 125 rooms
- A proposed 9 level 3.5 star hotel offering in the region of 225 rooms
- State-of-the-art conference facilities (an estimated 1400sqm) and ancillary uses as suggested in the 2009 Airport Master Plan’s intended uses for the precinct
- An innovative, flexible building design that will incorporate best practice sustainability strategies; and a sizeable shared basement car park ( approximately 133 car spaces)
A key marker in the development will be the conference facilities with ancillary uses. While an impressive ground level design will represent a benchmark in sustainable architecture incorporating landscape features reflective of the key objectives of the Brisbane the BAC Landscape Master Plan July 2009.
It is estimated that approximately 200 job opportunities are likely to also be generated during the construction phase of the development, both on and off the site.
Construction of the new hotel precinct is scheduled for June Quarter this year, with completion anticipated in March 2016.

^^^Well Brisbane only has a population of just over 2 Million people, half that of Melbourne or Sydney.
Agree with above comments. Brisbane needs more hotels and commercial facilities. It’s currently nowhere near the other state capitals of Sydney and Melbourne.
looks great. Brisbane Airport is becoming a real airport
