Hotel Development Eyed at Bluewater Square Shopping Centre in Redcliffe

Bluewater Square

Redcliffe’s busy Bluewater Square shopping centre has been primed for a transformation and improvement with the planned addition of a hotel and rooftop bar to boost the recreational activities of bayside locals.



In December 2022, Elanor Investors Group Ltd lodged a development application (DA/2022/5128) to construct a seven-level 142-room hotel atop the existing shopping complex at the corner of Sutton St and Anzac Ave.

The site will also boast a rooftop entertainment area with function or party rooms that open to the beautiful panoramic views of Moreton Bay.  Once opened, the hotel’s function rooms will operate from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m. every day.

Interworks Architects designed the hotel plans as a medium-density facility, which will be built on the southeast corner of Bluewater Square. The development will also include a hotel pool, rooftop kitchen and a restaurant.

A foyer entrance will be built on Sutton St whilst 62 basement car parking spaces will be gated for the hotel guests’ exclusive use. About a dozen car parking spaces would be removed and replaced with structural columns for the mid-rise building.

However, based on the pre-lodgement meetings, the loss of parking spaces will not significantly impact visitors to the shopping centre.

Per the application, “The proposed Short-term Accommodation, Function Facility and Bar utilises the existing shopping centre, whilst incorporating uses that will be highly beneficial to the local area. Additionally, the proposal will seamlessly integrate with the existing development.”
