Brisbane's Supreme Court to become a 5-star hotel

WHAT was once a hive of wigs and gowns will now become a haven for the well-heeled and well rested.

The former site of Brisbane's Supreme and District courts in the city's George St has been offloaded to the Shayher Group, a Taiwanese developer with a brief to deliver a five-star hotel.

The design remains vague, but there will be two towers - one office, one residential with  serviced apartments - with a combined floor area of 110,000sqm.

At least 65,000sqm of that will be for the units and hotel rooms.

The project is expected to create 5700 jobs as it is developed, for those both directly and indirectly involved.

Public Works Minister Tim Mander said along with the newly developed court precinct, this hotel and office development would help rejuvenate parts of Brisbane city.

"It is very rare that a site of this size that backs on to the Brisbane River becomes available for development," he said.
Shayher Group is expected to begin work as soon as possible.
