Located at Luggage Point, the project, valued at about $157m, will likely be a boost to the city, the firm said. The project transforms the city into a major cruise destination, as the new facility will be able to accommodate the next generation of mega ships, which can be over 300m long.

Prentice led the firm’s team on the matter. The team included Brisbane real estate partner Warren Denny, consultant Michael Meadows, and lawyer Lauren Wrafter.

K&L Gates said it assisted Port of Brisbane on project documentation and negotiations with the Queensland and other stakeholders.
