Sale to unlock the potential of Brisbane's Bulimba Barracks
19 November 2018
The Department of Defence today commenced the first stage of the open market sale process for the Bulimba Barracks site in Brisbane, marking a significant step in the Government’s commitment to unlocking surplus Commonwealth land for housing.
This 20-hectare waterfront development opportunity will deliver housing, improved community amenity and waterfront access for the Bulimba community and the people of Brisbane.
Prior to selling the site on the open market in accordance with the Commonwealth Property Disposal Policy, Defence completed due diligence investigations including detailed environmental, Indigenous and historic heritage assessments.
The relevant due diligence reports will be available to prospective buyers to inform them of their obligations to protect heritage values once the site leaves Commonwealth ownership.
Defence has worked collaboratively with the Queensland Government, Brisbane City Council and local community groups to achieve the best possible planning outcomes in accordance with the Bulimba District Neighbourhood Plan.
Defence is consolidating and relocating ongoing Royal Australian Navy activities to HMAS Moreton, located adjacent to the Bulimba Barracks divestment site.
