Kingston Butter Factory Cultural Precinct

Location: Kingston, QLD
Project type: Multi-Disciplinary
Budget: $12M
Status: Completed
Organisation: Logan City Council

The Kingston Butter Factory Community Precinct is located on Milky Way, Kingston and has undergone a $12m transformation. The historic Kingston Butter Factory site has been transformed into a world-class innovation hub and outdoor entertainment space through a city-changing project by Logan City Council. Retaining its original brickwork façade, the interior of the factory has been remodelled into a purpose-designed innovation hub to encourage collaboration, entrepreneurial development, innovation and invention.

The spacious 14-hectare grounds have been developed into the city’s largest purpose-built outdoor events space, with capacity for up to 5,000 patrons to see national and international acts and host major festivals, markets and community events. Due to the complexities and number of stakeholders, Complete also supported further Design Management for the upgrade of the existing infrastructure and the restoration of the heritage significant cottage.

The precinct will continue to celebrate the area’s Indigenous and pioneering history through the purpose-built Heritage Centre and restored Worker’s Cottage. The Logan City Historical Museum and the Arts & Crafts Co-op – both long-term tenants in the precinct – are among tenants of those heritage-focused spaces.
