New Convention and Exhibition Centre for the RNA Showgrounds
After seven years of planning, construction on the world-class $2.9 billion RNA Showgrounds Regeneration – the largest urban renewal project in Queensland - will begin in April, 2011.
As part of the official project launch, the design of the first stage of the project was unveiled – the transformation of the iconic Industrial Pavilion into a $59 million convention and exhibition centre. The new centre will importantly retain the key heritage facades built in 1937 and is due to be completed next year.
RNA chief executive Jonathan Tunny says the 22ha. site will be transformed into a year-round culture and lifestyle hub. Other works in the 15-year project include development of a commercial and residential precinct and a hotel.
