Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) is a specialist land use planning and property development unit within the Department of State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning, with the primary focus to facilitate economic development throughout Queensland.
EDQ replaces the former Urban Land Development Authority (ULDA) and Property Services Group (PSG). We continue the current development activities of these bodies whilst identifying new projects, which may include retail or development outcomes.
An experienced Urban Development team within EDQ oversees the role of master- planner at Northshore, working with private developers to deliver this major urban renewal project.
EDQ has planning and assessment responsibility for the 304-hectare Priority Development Area of Northshore and will work with local and State governments, community, local landholders and developers to deliver a waterfront community that is diverse, inclusive and utilises best-practise urban design.
EDQ is also the owner of approximately 60 hectares of land within the precinct, transferred from the Port of Brisbane in 2010.
In May 2015, EDQ was nationally recognised for its excellence in government leadership at the 2015 Property Council of Australia-Rider Levett Bucknall Innovation and Excellence Awards. The ISPT Award for Government Leadership recognises significant innovation and excellence in dealings with the property investment and development industries.
