Recycled wharf timbers given new life

29 Jun 2017

Northshore’s commercial past will breathe life into its future as recycled wharf timbers from the demolition of several old wharves from the area will be repurposed for use in Northshore’s redevelopment.

The reclaimed timbers will be used in a variety of settings including The Deck, an architecturally designed community building.

The Northshore community Men’s Shed will recycle the wharf timbers in upcoming projects, creating mementos of the area’s industrial history.

Developers have also been invited to purchase the salvaged timber bearers and use them throughout the development, creating an exciting opportunity to connect the burgeoning community with its historical setting.

Economic Development Queensland’s plans to include the recycled timber in the project’s master landscaping plan as public art works and/or furniture installations, to provide a lifelong historical element to the development.

Demolition of the wharves has made way for a 200 meter long riverwalk, the first section of the waterfront civic park development. The waterfront civic park will form an important part of the broader $5 billion master-planned Northshore redevelopment.

New bus route providing better access to Northshore.
