Home to progressive, urban commercial spaces, King Street has quickly become the leading location for office leasing in Bowen Hills. Neighbours with the CBD, Fortitude Valley and Newstead, it’s easy to see why developers have fled to this location.
As experts in shaping cities and creating strong and connected communities, Lend Lease is behind the master-planned Brisbane Showgrounds Project, redeveloping King Street into a vibrant lifestyle precinct. The Showgrounds is one of Brisbane’s most connected mixed-use destinations, so it only makes sense to expand the surrounding neighbourhood to embrace the same livelihood and innovation.
This project has seen King Street evolve into a cosmopolitan destination spot for residents, workers and visitors. With approximately 31,000sqm of office space already developed, the area shows strong potential for more office developments, including 1 King Street. Backed by residential apartments, it combines the accessibility and excitement of inner-city living with the charm of a local community, creating a vibrant hub perfect for business and lifestyle.
Accessible Public Transport
Located just 3km from the city, there are many main public transport options, including train lines, bus routes, and bike and pedestrian paths around the suburb to simplify your daily commute.
If you prefer to commute by train, both the Bowen Hills and Fortitude Valley train stations are less than a ten-minute walk from the Brisbane Showgrounds, taking no longer than five minutes to get to the city.
The Exhibition Station located at the Showgrounds is currently being upgraded as part of the Cross River Rail Project. After completion, this station will provide rail services all year round to serve residents throughout the suburb and provide pedestrian links between the station and Bowen Bridge Road.
“Bowen Hills is one of Brisbane’s most emerging precincts. Between the Royal Brisbane Hospital, road and developing public transport infrastructure, and high street retail amenity available on King Street, it’s a fantastic location for a plethora of industries. Our property at Terrace Office Park has received a lot of enquiry and has leased up well, and is going to be great long term investment for us.”
- Brad Bennett, Partner, KordaMentha Real Estate.
Food & Entertainment
Food and entertainment is something Brisbane locals take very seriously. While the city hasn’t always been known for its foodie hotspots, it has certainly evolved into an abundant dining and cultural destination with a spark of creativity.
Thanks to the budding King Street precinct, Bowen Hills is becoming the face of Brisbane’s food and entertainment scene.
For all the movie buffs, King Street Movies in the Park is back for 2022. This annual event is coming up on the 26th of March, showcasing free movies, live entertainment and complimentary food from local retailers. The two movie screenings for you to watch as the sun sets are Dore and the Lost City of Gold and Mamma Mia, accompanied by live music and a samba show, activities for the kids, free popcorn, the LaMacelleria’s gelato cart, and a King Street Eats voucher.
If local music is more your scene, King Street is also known for regularly hosting live music sessions from talented local artists. Over the festive season last year, local jazz and acoustic artists played throughout the street, creating a lively atmosphere loved by the locals.
The RNA Showgrounds is also the hub for exhibitions and concerts. From the Ekka to Wedding Expos and music festivals, there is always something happening at the showgrounds.
Food & Restaurants
Now making a massive contribution to Brisbane’s foodie scene, King Street hosts an extremely wide range of food and beverage options to suit every occasion, taste and mood. From breakfast cafes and gelato shops to giant beer halls and classic French cuisine, your biggest challenge will be deciding which venue to visit first.
The area features popular destinations like El Camino, Beerhaus and Fat Dumpling that have quickly become local hotspots with raving reviews. Along with Sushi & Nori and Il Verde, the area also hosts an award-winning French restaurant; Montrachet, that recently won two Chef Hat Awards.
For an experiential dining experience, you can visit Six Acres Restuarant for paddock to plate dining, or if you’re an early riser, Kuhl-Cher cafe is ready to satisfy your espresso cravings every weekday from 6 am.
King Street Bakery is another local favourite. Not only popular for the atmosphere and freshly baked goods but for their community initiatives too. Last October they launched KSB Home Feast, supplying delicious, pre-made meals by award-winning Chef Shannon Kellam, perfect for easy home dining or entertainment.
While King Street is all about liveliness and excitement, it understands the need for balance.
