Australia: Four Brisbane casino towers emerge from the ground after three years Tony Moore, The Sydney Morning Herald · May 11, 2020 at 7:16 am Four new towers are emerging from the ground near George Street in Brisbane’s CBD as part of the privately owned $3.6 billion Queen’s Wharf resort and casino development. For three years, since construction began in early 2017, development has been underground or along the Brisbane River. Now, the precinct’s first four towers – including the hotels, private apartments and gaming areas – are materialising between George and William streets. Queen’s Wharf project director Simon Crooks said the next phase would mark the change from when “the people of Brisbane looked down into the buildings and instead, looked into them”. The tallest tower is the Queen’s Wharf Residences, which is being built on the corner of Margaret and George streets.
