As a top Brisbane buyers agent, we’ve always got our finger on the pulse of the Brisbane property market. Check out what’s happening in Ipswich.

An entertainment company has signed up to occupy space in the Nicholas Street Venue building in Ipswich, southwest of the Brisbane CBD, which is situated in the Nicholas Street Precinct.

General Public, which operates three outlets in Victoria, intends to open an ‘eatertainery’ covering almost 3000sq m on the ground floor of the building, including state-of-the-art arcade games, 14 tenpin bowling lanes, golf simulators, billiards tables, darts room, event spaces, food and licensed drinking spots.

It is expected the eatertainery will be open by late 2024, and will join other brands in the Nicholas Street Precinct including HOYTS, Gelatissimo, Zambrero, Stellarossa, and Terry White Chemmart,

The Nicholas Street Precinct is touted to become the premier leisure, entertainment and cultural destination in the heart of a revitalised Ipswich Central.

The $71.9 million Nicholas Street Venue building will be Ipswich’s largest entertainment hub, with 12,500 square meters of multiple leisure and hospitality businesses over two levels.

The project will attract more people to the precinct and is a vote of confidence in the area.
