A new kind of neighbourhood – Portside Wharf set to undergo a $20-million facelift

Since its early development, Portside Wharf has long been known as one of Brisbane's premier riverfront destinations, boasting fine-dining delicacies, sophisticated fashion and top-tier entertainment. And while you may have thought the urban precinct has been a little quiet lately, we're here to let you in on some exciting news. The riverside locale is getting ready to undergo an extensive $20-million makeover, reaffirming its reputation as one of Brisbane's leading waterfront villages.


Portside Wharf will team up with designer Cavill Architects and city-shapers Urbis to create new tenancies, defined dining, retail and entertainment sub-precincts, as well as areas dedicated to lifestyle and wellness. The reimagined riverfront community will enhance views and access to the river through an extended entry plaza and main street, adding additional shade and landscaping to support year-round alfresco dining, alongside a refreshed and activated waterfront. Brookfield Residential Properties’ managing director Lee Butterworth said, The changes we are making will amplify our community connections, provide exciting day and night experiences, leverage even further our enviable waterfront location, and create enticing spaces for our customers to relax, unwind and socialise.”

This new phase of the mixed-use development will seek to redefine the future of Portside Wharf by drawing inspiration from its rich legacy. “This river location has been essential for centuries, originally as a hunting and gathering ground, then as a regatta location, productive wharf and cruise ship terminal, and combining these histories in this next phase will reassert Portside Wharf as one of Brisbane’s key memorable places to gather and connect with the river,” said Cavill Architects practice director Andrew D’OcchioThe 12,000-sqm waterfront site is currently home to some of Brisbane’s best dining, entertainment and retail spaces, including Sono Japanese Restaurant, Byblos, Gusto Da Gianni and Dendy Cinema. With more exciting new retailers to be announced in the near future, be sure to keep your eyes peeled and ears alert for more news surrounding Portside Wharf’s forthcoming evolution. Work is anticipated to start later this year and be finalised by December 2023.
