To be built on the old Breakfast Creek Wharf site in Newstead, the $100m Mercedes-Benz Brisbane Autohaus will rival those in Europe. It will feature an automotive sales and service centre, a 539sqm automotive museum, administrative office area, rooftop event space and conference room and retail tenancies.
Chief Executive Officer, Joe Barr, said the development would reinvigorate the public space along the waterfront.
“In it’s heyday in the 1980s, Breakfast Creek Wharf housed riverfront restaurants but has more recently fallen into disrepair. This project is an exciting piece of urban renewal that will create an iconic leisure, entertainment and hospitality precinct enabling residents and visitors to truly embrace Brisbane’s subtropical lifestyle,” he said.
Building Manager QLD/NT, Colin Matthews, said Autohaus would be important for Brisbane.
“We relish the opportunity to deliver this vision for Mercedes-Benz Brisbane. The development sits at the gateway linking the airport to the inner city and beyond. It will be a focal point for the community and also generate approximately 300 jobs during construction,” he said.
Construction is scheduled to start in the coming weeks.
