It’s Townsville’s future

Progress Update

With Stage one of the Integrated Stadium and Entertainment Centre (North Queensland Stadium) now secured and in the planning phase, attention shifts to ensuring that the design of the Stadium allows for future expansion and inclusion of the Entertainment Centre.

The Department of State Development is leading the delivery of the North Queensland Stadium Project which is expected to generate up to 750 jobs throughout the design and construction stages.

Invitation for Expressions of Interest (EOI) from Principal Consultants and their sub-consultant design teams is currently open – closing 2.00pm Monday 19 September 2016.

Engaging local industry and generating jobs is one of the key objectives for the North Queensland Stadium project.

The project has been placed on the ICN gateway and suppliers are encouraged to visit the website to register their interest.

Suppliers who are interested in building their supply chain capability can contact the Major Projects Supply Chain Team in the Department of State Development via email Townsville.NQRO@dsd.qld.gov.au

It's more than a stadium

Townsville’s number one priority continues to be the Integrated Stadium & Entertainment Centre (ISEC).

This is a game changing catalytic project for urban renewal in Townsville. ISEC now has the support of Local, State and Federal Governments along with the support of the NRL and North Queensland Cowboys.

An iconic 25,000 seat stadium and 6,000 seat entertainment facility, ISEC will showcase national and international sporting events, host major music events, festivals and conferences and will be the home of the North Queensland Cowboys NRL team.

ISEC is significantly more than just a stadium.

ISEC will catalyse urban activation and investment across Townsville’s Waterfront Priority Development Area, turbocharge the region’s events and tourism industry, bring jobs to the city and boost business confidence.

ISEC by numbers:

  • $1.9B – ISEC will accelerate development of the planned $1.9B waterfront redevelopment
  • 1,650 jobs created in the construction phase
  • $130M in wages and salary in the construction phase
  • $675M in additional economic output in the construction phase
  • $5M annual gross value add once ISEC is complete
  • 37,000 new visitors to the region each year
  • $2M annual visitor spend once ISEC is complete

Townsville Enterprise has actively worked with its members, key stakeholders, the local community, Local Governments and local businesses to seek funding commitments from the State and Federal Governments and Opposition.

The State Government has committed $140M to the project, NRL and North Queensland Cowboys have committed $10M and at a Federal level, $100M has been committed. Stage One of this $380M project will now commence.

Congratulations Townsville!
