    From Monday 9th January 2023 to Thursday 16th February 2023, night construction works will be taking place to install authority infrastructure, including water and sewerage connections, to service the growing Newstead precinct.

    These works will be carried out Monday to Friday, from 7pm to 6am, during this five-week period.

    Work will include excavating sections of road and footpath on Skyring Terrace, between Mirvac’s Quay and LIV Anura construction sites to lay this critical piping.

    The infrastructure works are being undertaken by contractors approved by Queensland Urban Utilities (QUU), under Mirvac’s supervision, and with all relevant approvals in place, including an out of hours construction permit from Brisbane City Council.

    Mirvac will be working with its contractors to minimise disruption as much as possible during this time, and apologises for any inconvenience these infrastructure works may cause.

Since 2001, Waterfront, Newstead has set the benchmark for real estate in Brisbane on location, design and lifestyle. It represents an opportunity to create history, developing one of the last, and largest, tracts of land along the city’s magnificent waterfront, reshaping Newstead into one of Brisbane’s most popular precincts.

The Waterfront Newstead story is continually unfolding to create a connected and vibrant community. Waterfront Newstead has been the catalyst for the evolution of Newstead, contributing over $65 million in parklands, roads, cycleways, community facilities and retail to date. It is also home to the first residential buildings by Mirvac - Pier, Park and Unison. The latest forth residential stage, Quay Waterfront Newstead and build-to-rent project LIV Anura are currently under construction.

The much-anticipated next stage of Waterfront Newstead, Isle, is coming soon. To register a sales enquiry please visit

Waterfront Newstead Community

Wrapped around parkland, flanked by Brisbane’s riverfront, Gasworks and green open space, Waterfront Newstead is a connected community.

The original plan was created back in 2001 and has evolved with the area’s emerging community. The plan was updated in 2011, in line with the introduction of Brisbane City Council’s Newstead and Teneriffe Waterfront Neighbourhood Plan and its planning controls.
