Construction of Laguna North Lakes delayed

December 7, 2018 by  

The start of work on the Laguna North Lakes project has been delayed until the middle of 2019.

Work on the $250 million retail development planned for North Lakes, had originally been planned to start at the end of 2018, but this has been put back while the developers, the George Group and Pointcorp, continue to select suitable tenants and contractors. Construction of the precinct was originally scheduled to be completed by late 2020.

The mixed-use precinct will include, 5,000sqm of retail space including a restaurant area and 10,500sqm of office space in two towers. It has been designed to create a sustainable, healthy and inspiring workplace.

There will be a hotel with over 130 rooms and a convention and events centre with five interconnecting spaces suitable for all manner of functions. A lagoon style pool will be accessible to the public and there will be 2,000sqm of gym and wellness facilities. At the heart of the precinct will be a tree-lined high street designed for pedestrian access. There will be underground and on-street parking for over 900 cars.

North Lakes is a flourishing and diverse suburb and 2016 ABS census data showed it to be Queensland’s fastest growing region. It is home to nearly 6,000 families, with many events organised for residents of all ages. The recently completed rail link and proximity to attractive beaches help to make it a popular place to live. With good access to both Brisbane CBD and the airport North Lakes attracts both large and small businesses including printing services.
