Something like that would look better on its own and have more focus on it rather than being pretty much unnoticed.

That's would look very cool! Nice mockup Soul!

I tried googling Shayer Group and didn't come up with anything. Do we know much about who these people are? Hopefully we don't have to wait very long for the government to put out a press release about it!

I tried also and came up blank... Apparently they have been reasonably active in Brisbane, but no website and no tangible info on what they specialise in (ie, do they design and construct themselves, or do they simply manage the process?)

Will there really be an announcement for it this week?

Well if it is a done deal, the Government will need to tell us sooner or later...

Just going on the write up in the Courier (Friday) which said the Government hoped to make an announcement on who got the contract next week.

That's if they actually make a decision of course.

Might prove to be a good distraction against any flak the government may get over the culling of senior police positions.

The full article from last Friday courier mail


AN ASIAN property group will be given the nod to develop the former Supreme Court site.

Sources say Shayher Group is the preferred tender to develop the State Government's George St site, beating short-listed public companies Charter Hall and Mirvac.

Based in Taiwan and controlled by the Lin family, Shayher is understood to be finalising contracts with the Government. The company did not return phone calls.

But a source said it would be Shayher's first non-residential project in Australia.

``They were very keen to secure that as a landmark site and demonstrate their ability top deliver a substantial project,'' he said.

Just over a year ago, the Labor Government called for expressions of interest for the purchase and redevelopment of the 7892sq m law courts site on George St.

The Government wanted the site to be used as a luxury hotel, offices, retail and a privately owned and operated theatre.

However, it is understood the theatre has been mothballed, with Shayher looking to develop a hotel on the site, as well as offices and possibly a residential component.

The block is the 13th largest, single-lot land parcel in the Brisbane CBD and Shayher will pay almost $60 million.

The property was marketed by Savills' Anthony Ott and Robert Dunne, but they were unavailable for comment.

The State Government also refused to comment.

The purchase of the Supreme Court site will be the private company's fourth acquisition in Brisbane since 2009. Shayher owns Wynnum Plaza shopping centre, bought for $76.7 million; the 7.2ha CSIRO site at 140 Meiers Rd, Indooroopilly, $25.3 million; and a 1.07ha site on Remora Rd, in the urban renewal precinct of Northshore Hamilton, $13.2 million.

The Meiers and Remora roads sites were earmarked for residential development.

The Supreme Court site will be the second of the Government's ``megasites'' in the CBD to be sold.

Two weeks ago the Government announced construction union superannuation fund CBUS had won the tender to build the Government's $653 million, 43-storey executive building at 1 William St. Acting premier Jeff Seeney said it was the first major private sector development delivered through Projects Queensland.

There were two articles. One a few pages in from the front and the other in Prime Site. I'll bet you it was written in the other one that the Government hoped to be able to make an announcement this week.

I didn't think I was dreamin' again. I found a Friday's courier (4th Jan) and about six pages in was the *other* article. I photo copied the page but I can't get it onto this thread so you will just have to believe me. Written by Chris Herde...Prime Site Editor.

Excerpt: *The Government refused to comment yesterday but Shayer is understood to be in the process of finalising contracts. An announcement is expected next week.* At the end of the article it refers to Prime Site page 60.

Who makes the announcement is anybody's guess but I assume the Government will say something......if things are finalised.

Don't blame me if their is no announcement. LOL

Even if there is an announcement, it doesn't necessarily mean that a design will be released. They're only selling the block.

I could be wrong but I can't imagine an announcement being made about the sale of the block without some proposal ( possibly render), particularly as the Government has made certain requests.

The $60 million sale has virtually been announced already.

I tend to agree Gerryt. The site was put out to tender, it wasn't a straight land disposal. I would imagine that at least an outline of what is proposed for the site would need to be made public. This is quite a significant Government landholding, the public needs to know what has been decided for it.

This one is slowly progressing.

Under the gavel: Old court site's new owner to be revealed

The government will announce the winner of the tender process for the coveted old supreme and district court site within the next two weeks.

The city block at 272-318 George Street was placed on the market by the previous Labor state government and was touted for its CBD location, river views and large size of about 7900 square metres.

Echo Entertainment, which confirmed proposals for a new casino complex in Brisbane on Thursday, had previously expressed interest in the site, but told the Australian Financial Review in September the company no longer considered it an option.

Expressions of interest in the site closed in August last year. The sales campaign went international and while estimated earnings have not been discussed recently, then-premier Anna Bligh put a price of $57.3 million on the site.

The previous government had committed those funds to the now-suspended Cairns Entertainment Precinct.

In late August last year, then-public works minister Bruce Flegg said he expected the successful tender to be announced in October.

Then, Dr Flegg said he had received submissions covering “a broad range of major mixed-use developments, including hotel, office, residential, retail and theatre space”.

Dr Flegg resigned from his portfolio in November. A spokesman for his ministerial replacement Tim Mander said the government had selected its preferred tender for the site “but the final details are still being negotiated”.

An announcement is expected in two weeks.

While I still hold hope for a theatre/performing arts space to be incorporated into the project, I think the chances of this seem slim now with Newman at the wheel.
