Lend Lease preferred for $2.5B showgrounds project

Lend Lease said yesterday it would work with the Royal National Agricultural and Industrial Association of Queensland (RNA) to rebuild the RNA amenities into exhibition and showground facilities for the Brisbane EkkA, Queensland’s largest annual event, while also developing part of the 22 hectares for an inner-city mixed-use development.The development is one of Brisbane’s largest urban renewal projects and will include a mix of residential, commercial, retail and cultural facilities. “The current venue, which is closed for a lot of the year, will become a vibrant new urban community within inner-city Brisbane for both residents and visitors to enjoy,” chief operating officer of Lend Lease APAC David Hutton said. “The development will also provide new and improved pedestrian and bicycle connections between Bowen Hills and Fortitude Valley and the Royal Brisbane Hospital.”
