The heritage-listed Treasury Casino will be transformed into a high-end department store as part of Destination Brisbane’s winning bid to redevelop Brisbane‘s (Australia) Queens Wharf precinct.
The consortium, made up of Echo Entertainment Group, Far East Consortium, and Chow Tai Fook Enterprises, was announced as the bid winner on Monday afternoon by Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk.
State Development Minister Dr. Anthony Lynham said the project would be “transformational for Brisbane“.
“It’ll do what South Bank did for Brisbane 30 years ago,” he said.
The area contains significant heritage buildings, a number of under-utilised government buildings as well as neglected riverfront land under the Riverside Expressway.
