 Fast-Tracked Marina Plans Make for Plain Sailing

Exciting plans for a new $2.74 billion marina in Brisbane have been accelerated after receiving priority government backing.

Plans for the North Harbour Marina precinct, in Queensland’s Moreton Bay Region, have been granted a major boost after being declared a Priority Development Area.

The news comes as the Queensland State Government looks to stimulate its economy with almost 8,000 jobs created during the construction phase alone.

The development will feature a 400-berth marina as well as a marina village with retail, tourism and leisure activities to satisfy one of Australia’s fasted growing regions.

North Harbour Project Director, Bryan Finney, said: “The North Harbour Marina PDA will be world-class landmark destination that advances the identity, ecological health and prosperity of South-East Queensland.”

The declaration of a PDA will also deliver additional huge benefits, including a marine industry boom that will attract a significant slice of Australia’s $68 billion marine industry to Moreton Bay.

Moreton Bay Mayor, Peter Flannery, said: “The North Harbour PDA is a $2.7 billion project that’s expected to create 7,000 jobs and inject many billions more directly into our local economy.”

This is a huge coup for the Moreton Bay Region and exactly what we need to help us recover from the huge financial impacts of COVID-19 by boosting the construction sector and diversifying local industry.

Developers North Harbour Holdings and Trask Land Corporation are overseeing the project, expected to be complete by 2035, and it is thought the marina could inject around $707 million into the Moreton Bay Region each year.
