Northshore Hamilton will undergo a spectacular transformation to become the main Athletes’ Village for the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games – further cementing its reputation as Brisbane’s riverfront lifestyle precinct.

“The Olympics will do for Northshore Hamilton what Expo 88 did for South Bank,” Deputy Premier and State Development Minister Steven Miles said.

“Village construction will crystalise the area’s long-term plan and rejuvenate the existing industrial land,” Mr Miles said.

“It will boost an already popular precinct – home to landmarks such as Portside, Eat Street Markets, and Alcyone Hotel, and some of Brisbane’s best waterfront living – will be tremendous.

“The Village will host more than 10,000 athletes and team officials for the Olympic Games and more than 5000 for the Paralympics.

“Brisbane is now an ‘Olympic City’ along with global destination-giants Paris and Los Angeles as future hosts (2024 and 2028), after Tokyo.”

“Our Athletes’ Village will be on Economic Development Queensland-owned land within the Northshore Hamilton Priority Development Area (PDA).

“Northshore’s prime waterfront location, proximity to the CBD and competition and training venues, let alone transport connections, make it an ideal location – even after the Games are over.

“Among the key requirements when hosting the Olympics is provision of athletes accommodation and I’m proud Northshore has been locked-in for the Brisbane Olympic and Paralympic Athletes’ Village.

“Hosting the 2032 Games will mean a 10-year pipeline of construction jobs, trade and investment opportunities, and legacy projects that will benefit Queenslanders for decades to come.

“The legacy of the Village precinct is already incredibly important.”

Post the Games it will deliver a diverse residential offering, including aged care, retirement living social and affordable housing, key worker, hotel, build-to-rent and market accommodation.

EDQ recently awarded a $14 million package of works to BMD Constructions to construct three new roads and upgrade two others with associated services and landscaping at the eastern end of Northshore.

“It’s great to see that these works are underway – supporting 46 construction jobs,” Mr Miles said.

“It is anticipated the new land supply will generate over $500 million of private sector investment. Development of the newly constructed sites could create over 1600 construction jobs.”

Northshore is also set to be the home of a proposed new biomedical facility for Vaxxas to manufacture its world-leading needle-free vaccines, which could be used for COVID-19.

Mr Miles said the development scheme for the Northshore Hamilton PDA is in the final stages of review and will be released for public comment later this year.

“It’s important for the local community to have their say on such an important infrastructure area,” he said.

“Our goal is to have a revised development scheme next year.”

    Definitely hope that when the upgrades happen the industrial feeling is gone, it won’t be a very inviting place if it still feels old. Hope my room has a good bed. also, can i reserve a training session on the practice track on 24 July 2032.

    I am hoping that you have plans for the innovation hub that currently sits on this site. Team Arrow solar car, mens shed and hackerspace.

    Must surely include an upgrade and extension of the Doomben rail corridor…tragedy if it doesn’t! Not wishful-thinking either, if any rail corridor in Brisbane is suited to dramatically higher passenger numbers, it’s that one, if it’s upgraded and extended around underground to Hamilton.
