Biggest Luxury Shopping Complex Coming to Queen’s Wharf

Queen’s Wharf is set to become the “envy of the nation” as Destination Brisbane Consortium has secured leading retailer DFS Group to open the luxury shopping complex, T Galleria, at the premier riverfront site. 

DFS, a part of the Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMH) group, has one of the largest portfolios of internationally-known brands and stores. The group will occupy 6,000 square metres of the nearly 40,000 square metres of the lifestyle precinct. 

The complex will be a three-level site, blending into the repurposed, heritage-listed Printery Building on George Street. Across the shopping destination will be 16 free-standing luxury brand stores.

“This is another milestone in the world-class development that will transform Brisbane’s CBD, boost tourism and create thousands more jobs when complete,” Deputy Premier and State Development Minister Steven Miles said.

“The development will feature 50 bars, cafes and restaurants, a casino, four world-class hotels, up to 2,000 residential apartments, the Sky Deck, moonlight cinema, the Neville Bonner Bridge and now around 6,000m2 of luxury retail floorspace.”

“Once Queens Wharf is up and running, it will provide jobs for more than 8,000 Queenslanders at one of Australia’s most sought-after destinations,” Treasurer and Minister for Investment Cameron Dick said.

“The construction workers on this massive project also deserve congratulations for their ability to keep the project going right through the impacts of COVID.”

T Galleria will be the largest complex for DFS compared to its sister stores in Cairns, Sydney  and Auckland, New Zealand.

Star Entertainment Group CEO Matt Bekier of the Destination Brisbane Consortium said that the addition of DFS’s biggest site in Australia would establish Queen’s Wharf as a “globally competitive” and world-class destination, delivering the “wow factor” for local, interstate and international visitors.

Meanwhile, DFS Group Chairman and CEO Benjamin Vuchot said that they are delighted to be on board.

“We’re delighted to join Queen’s Wharf Brisbane’s multitude of attractions and look forward to welcoming our global traveling customers to this exciting city in the future.”

T Galleria is earmarked for a 2022 opening.
