Expressions of interest are being sought for two prime pieces of commercial real estate in the City of Moreton Bay. Located in North Lakes and Caboolture, both South East Queensland commercial hotspots, the locations are prime for potential tourism and hospitality opportunities.

City of Moreton Bay Mayor Peter Flannery predicts the sites will attract high quality, dynamic development due to their enviable positions and Council’s highly flexible town planning provisions.

“These developments will play a crucial role in City of Moreton Bay achieving our goal of a $40 billion economy by 2041.

“Council is seeking expressions of interest from qualified groups with the capacity and track record for delivering and operating a range of land uses and project outcomes that are consistent with our vision for the site.

“We’re committed to supporting the successful developers in achieving this vision and will provide flexible commercial terms to ensure early activation of the sites and a high-quality development outcome,” Mayor Flannery said.

Located in Division 3 (Caboolture) and Division 4 (North Lakes), both Councillor’s expressed excitement for their residents.

Councillor Adam Hain (Division 3) noted that this was a call for a positive and thoughtful development to create an exciting and innovative nature-tourism destination.

“Creating agricultural and environmental tourism opportunities through sustainably focused developments, will not only bring the economic benefits of new jobs and visitors to the community, but also importantly preserve the natural habitats and environment which are the pride of our community,” Councillor Hain said.

Councillor Jodie Shipway (Division 4) welcomed the expressions of interest, highlighting this as an exciting opportunity to further enhance one of South East Queensland’s most desirable locations.

“North Lakes is primed for a significant development of this type, and Council is keen to attract a developer to lead a considered project which will cater for future growth, facilitate economic expansion, and further boost liveability by activating the area for the community,” Councillor Shipway said.

The City of Moreton Bay has already established itself as a thriving hub for food producers, artisans and tourism. Both sites provide the opportunity to significantly elevate the City’s position as a major food, agri-tourism and nature-based tourism destination within Australia’s rapidly growing South East Queensland.

The development sites are located at 94-142 Lower King Street, Caboolture, Queensland and 28-40 North Lakes Drive, North Lakes, Queensland. The invitation for expressions of interest closes 2pm Thursday 28 September 2023.
