The developers of the Bulimba Barracks site in Brisbane’s east have asked the city council to vary an existing masterplan to reflect a need to raise the entire site above flood level.
- Defence sold Bulimba Barracks to Shayher Group last year for $63 million
- The masterplanned site will have 850 homes, greenspace and a community centre
- Development plans show the site needs to be lifted above flood level
Documents submitted to the council this week note the 20-hectare site on the banks of the Brisbane River must be almost entirely filled with earth to ensure a planned 855-home master-planned community is safe from flooding.
The Department of Defence finalised the sale of the Apollo Road site to Shayher Group for $63 million last year.
