The redevelopment of a 5 hectare site within the Herston Health Precinct has begun. Metro North Hospital and Health Service is overseeing the redevelopment of Herston Quarter which will be managed by Australian Unity as the development partner.

The $1.1 billion transformation of Herston Quarter will deliver a mixed-use community which will cater for health, residential, commercial and retail development.

This exciting project will complement the world-class health, education and research facilities within the Herston Health Precinct, including the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital. Herston Quarter will be integrated with the broader Herston Health Precinct and will create a thriving community.

On 7 August 2017, Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) released the proposed development scheme, the planning document that will guide future development of the Herston Quarter site. EDQ conducted a 30 business day public notification period, for all interested parties to view the proposed development scheme and make a written submission, between 7 August and 18 September 2017. For more information, visit the community engagement page.

The Herston Quarter redevelopment will deliver a new 132-bed public health facility, plus a new private hospital, and aged care and retirement facilities in the health and wellbeing precinct.The existing heritage precinct will be restored and reinvigorated to become a vibrant heart for the community. The Lady Lamington buildings will be revitalised and repurposed as student accommodation.  Additional retail space, cafes and complementary commercial space will be part of this space, with revitalised green and open space for staff and the community to enjoy. Other facilities within the precinct will include childcare facilities, parking, and recreational activities.
