Development Overview


Located two kilometres from Brisbane’s central business district and forming part of the already established and world-class Herston Health Precinct, the Herston Quarter offers many strategic advantages.

Site plan

Australian Unity is delivering Herston Quarter in stages. Over a 10 year development period, which commenced in 2017, Herston Quarter will be transformed into a vibrant, mixed-use community where Queenslanders will choose to work, live and visit.

Land use plan

In line with the priorities of the Queensland Government, Herston Quarter will deliver quality health, education and biomedical facilities across 50% of the site.

Supporting this is a range of complementary uses across residential and student accommodation, commercial, child care, retail and food and beverage services that support the Quarter and the balance of the Herston Health Precinct.

The overall land use will also be balanced in nature, embrace the site’s existing heritage value and create a vibrant, wellbeing community where Queenslanders and all those who visit the Herston Health Precinct can thrive.


The masterplan for the Herston Quarter development includes:

  • the completed 182 bed, Surgical, Treatment and Rehabilitation Service (STARS), providing specialist care for rehabilitation, elective surgery, endoscopy and outpatient services
  • refurbishment and adaptive reuse of iconic heritage buildings including returning the Lady Lamington buildings to student accommodation, consistent with their original use
  • new private hospital incorporating medical suites, commercial space and potential for biomedical space
  • residential and commercial accommodation
  • complementary retail, food and beverage services
  • triple the number of carparks currently available on the site
  • a new childcare centre
  • a variety of attractive, accessible and comfortable public spaces for visitors, staff and residents to enjoy
