Brisbane is currently undergoing a once in a generation level of infrastructure investment. Located within short reach of these projects, and just 2km from Brisbane's CBD, The Sinclair is set to deliver not only an ideal, effortless lifestyle but strong value-uplift.

Brisbane’s New World City transformation is well and truly underway, with a $30 billion pipeline of infrastructure projects set to completely redefine the way people live and invest in the capital city.

Established, tightly-held and high demand suburbs like East Brisbane are perfectly positioned to benefit from these major projects. Located just 2km from Brisbane’s CBD, The Sinclair by Mosaic already enjoys ready access to public transport, lifestyle amenity, world-class education and healthcare, and major employment hubs.  Adding to this, it is less than 1km to the city’s most significant project – Cross River Rail.

Cross River Rail & Woolloongabba Masterplan – < $5.4 billion | 850m

Cross River Rail is a 10.2km rail line that includes a 5.9km twin tunnel under the Brisbane River and the CBD. The project includes four new underground stations at Boggo Road, Woolloongabba, Albert Street, Roma Street and redevelopment of two existing overground stations at Dutton Park and the Exhibition which will be used by 164,000 passengers daily. Once complete, the new stations will have an estimated development value of $20 billion and will generate unique opportunities for economic growth and revitalisation of these inner-city precincts.

Project construction is well underway and progressing well, with critical milestones being achieved. Seven worksites have been established with 1,000 workers around Brisbane and in the coming months, another eleven worksites will be established and over 1,500 workers employed as the project doubles in size.

The Woolloongabba station precinct will be transformed into a vibrant mixed-use hub, linking commercial, residential and retail development with access to world-class public transport and one of Australia’s most iconic sports stadiums. The precinct will include a land bridge to span Main Street providing easy access on game days, as well as improved public spaces and opportunities for new retail and commercial developments that will encourage even more visitors to the area, and become the new urban heart for the suburb. Once complete, commuters will be just minutes by train to the Brisbane CBD.

The Woolloongabba Masterplan concept incorporates the Cross River Rail Woolloongabba Station precinct which will be transformed into a vibrant mixed-use hub, linking commercial, residential and retail development with access to world-class public transport and one of Australia’s most iconic sports stadiums.

Just 2km south of Brisbane’s CBD, the Woolloongabba Masterplan includes a stadium upgrade and the revitalisation of the 11-hectare site to include landscaped public gardens with big screens, and walkways over Main, Vulture and Stanley streets.

In addition, The Sinclair will take full advantage of its proximity to Brisbane’s other historic infrastructure projects, including:

  • Queen’s Wharf $3.6 Billion | 2.8 km
  • Brisbane Metro $944 Million | Buranda Station | 2.4km
  • Waterfront Brisbane $2.1 Billion | 3.3km
  • Brisbane Live $2 Billion | 3.6 km
  • Victoria Park $1 Billion | 5km

One of Brisbane’s most prestigious and highly-desirable blue-chip residential locations, East Brisbane already has a constrained supply of apartments and is in high demand from young professionals wanting to reside in the tightly-held suburb within high-quality residences. If you’re considering investing in residential property, then The Sinclair is a smart investment choice that shouldn’t be overlooked.
