Chip on my shoulder (BBQ)
That's just simplistic. Brisbane and Gold Coast are one conurbation with about 3.3 million people. The two cites are increasingly interactive and this creates the critical mass that drives demand. Brisbane has kicked serious arse in the skyscraper stakes and imagine in the next 4 years with Queens Wharf, The One, 443 Queen Street, the new office tower on North Quay and perhaps 30 Albert Street. These are just the ones in the pipeline.Ummm. Melbourne is also more than twice the size of Brisbane with a better economy. I don't wanna hate on Brisbane, but just sayin'.
Then we have a magnificent whole other skyline of skyscrapers just down the road on the Goldy.
So let's get a bit of perspective. The economy of SEQ is very, very strong.
