Castle Hill development kicks on with tenders called

Townsville City Council has called for tenders to construct a new eatery and events space near the summit of Castle Hill.

“Castle Hill has so much potential. That is why Council included the development and implementation of a Castle Hill Concept Plan in our Townsville 2020 masterplan,” Mayor Jenny Hill said.

Cr Hill said the eatery and events space was planned for the 800sq m former Panorama House site near the top of the hill.

Local architect Counterpoint Architecture is designing the building.

The works on Castle Hill have received almost $2 million in funding from the Federal Government’s Building Better Regions Fund.

Member for Herbert Phillip Thompson said the project would create jobs and strengthen the tourism economy.

“We all know how iconic Castle Hill is, and this project will only increase its value to the community, and make Townsville an even better place to live, work and play,” Mr Thompson said.

“Through these projects, we are creating long-term jobs while cementing our region on the tourism map.”
