According to Cr Krista Adams, Brisbane’s focus is to deliver a climate positive Games, meaning it will go beyond just being carbon neutral and offset more emissions than it produces. Infrastructure and the property industry will be critical to achieving this and to ensuring the city has the venues and facilities to host the Games.
“Stay engaged with the council and keep your eye out for opportunities to have your say on how you’d like to see the city evolve over the next 10 years,” she said, addressing infrastructure and development companies.
Beyond infrastructure development, there are many other opportunities for business including the hospitality and hosting aspects of the Games, according to Greg Clark. “The capital used to develop infrastructure creates opportunities for co-investment by the private sector.”
The possibilities from Brisbane 2032 stretch far beyond Queensland.
“They’ll have significant national impacts, especially on the infrastructure, construction and development sectors,” added Jeremy White.
He pointed out how the Games could also fuel the biggest real estate renaissance in Brisbane’s history.
“Industry experts are predicting a decade of property price growth and see key infrastructure suburbs soar [in value],” he said.
