EDQ relocated Eat Street enabling access to this section of the river never-before accessible to the public and assisted in the launch of a multi-million-dollar new look Eat Street Northshore in April 2017.
Expanding to cover over 10,200 square metres and built from 167 repurposed shipping containers, Eat Street Northshore is a feast for the senses – the sights, smells, tastes and sounds excite the senses the moment visitors step through the gates.
Welcoming over one million people annually, Eat Street Northshore provides an international dining experience with over 50 food vendors offering quality food at affordable prices, and showcasing over 24 live performances every Friday, Saturday and Sunday right on the shores of the Brisbane River at Northshore.
EDQ invested $1.5 million in supporting infrastructure to enable the relocation, including the construction of car parking facilities, service connections, wharf repairs and a public realm connection to the Northshore Hamilton CityCat Terminal. The return on EDQ’s investment was realised in under two years, with Eat Street Northshore’s activation contributing significantly to EDQ’s annual revenue.
Eat Street Northshore invests over $1.2 million per annum on entertainment, supporting over 17 artists every weekend.
The success of Eat Street Northshore enables EDQ’s development partners, including Frasers Property Australia, Alcyone Hotel Residences and Brookfield Residential Properties, to capitalise on the increase visitation and Northshore brand awareness throughout evolving urban renewal activities.
