Former quarry, now prime real estate, sold

A former Hamilton quarry, on the north bank of the Brisbane River, has recently been sold to an arm of the Queensland Government.

The 5610m² site at 330 Kingsford Smith Drive, Hamilton, was purchased by Queensland Urban Utilities.

“The property is zoned ‘Special Purpose (Utilities Services)’, and we are still considering our development plans for the site,” Queensland Urban Utilities spokesperson Sarah Owens told Quarry. “It is likely to be used for water or sewerage infrastructure in the future as we cater for population growth in the Brisbane CBD and in suburbs such as Hamilton, Eagle Farm and Pinkenba.”

In 1891, the Hamilton Divisional Board used the waterfront site as a quarry, which produced road fill for works on Breakfast Creek Road. It was subsequently used as a reserve by police and as a council depot.

The property was reportedly sold for around $5.5 million, according to reports published in The Courier Mail.
