“The materiality chosen for the podium includes brick patterning to connect with the industrial history and development within the broader area of the PDA. Being located at a key entrance point for the PDA, provides an excellent opportunity to provide this style of locally distinctive outcome, which has been achieved successfully in other areas, such as Woolloongabba.” – Mewing Planning Consultants

The application will be assessed by Economic Development Queensland as it is situated within the Northshore Hamilton Priority Development Area.
