The Sky Deck has been completed topping out The Star Brisbane’s luxury 5-star, 340 room The Star Grand hotel 100m above the Brisbane River.
The open-air rooftop Sky Deck is a first for Brisbane, open 365 days a year for up to 1,500 people with a signature restaurant, all day casual dining, a hero bar and events space.
The Star Brisbane chief operating officer Kelvin Dodt said it was a “defining moment” for the $3.6 billion Queen’s Wharf Brisbane.
When complete, Queen’s Wharf Brisbane will offer four new luxury hotels, including The Star Grand, more than 50 new restaurant and bars, around 1,500 residential apartments and more than 12 football fields of public space including art works and the restoration of nine heritage buildings.
“This is a special and long anticipated moment for Queen’s Wharf and The Star Brisbane but more widely it is a game changer for Brisbane and Queensland tourism,” said Dodt.
“This will become one of the city’s most recognisable skyscapes elevating Brisbane’s already growing international reputation as a must-visit destination ahead of the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
“We are well underway with the internal fit out of The Star Grand hotel, which will offer direct access to one of the city’s largest ballrooms and other new, exciting entertainment, dining and tourism spaces as part of the integrated resort.”
Acting Premier Steven Miles said the Sky Deck is poised to become a tourist magnet.
“As we move closer toward the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games, all eyes will be on this city and it’s developments like this that will attract even more people to town to get their picture on the glass floor viewing platform, to visit a restored heritage building or have dinner overlooking Brisbane,” he said.
