The Gas Works
Redevelopment & Restoration
The Gas Works greenfield site which borders the CBD of Launceston is currently being redeveloped by Tasland Developments. Parking in this area is abundant and the prime site offers in excess of 1000m2 of top quality warehousing which ideally lends itself to an integrated commercial and entertainment redevelopment.
In 2014 a $65,000,000 application put forward by Tasland to develop the adjoining council car park within this precinct was rejected by the Launceston City Council. Tasland Developments then decided to downscale the development to the Gas Works site only.
The magnificent rejected development included a new state of the art cinema, a walking bridge from Aurora Stadium across the river, a large outdoor stage for all types of family entertainment, a hotel plus restaurants and cafes. The rejection of this exciting development was a disappointing result for the people of Launceston.
Tasland are currently negotiating with a new international conglomerate in regard to a large scale commercial development within the Gas Works site.
Tasland Developments is currently working on a full restoration and redevelopment of the Gas Works site in central Launceston and are seeking expressions of interest from business people.
We recently constructed a new Hogs Breath restaurant on the ground floor of the landmark vertical retort building. Other businesses and services already operating from the Gas Works site include Baptcare, ORS Group, District Nurses, Hays Recruitment Agency, MS Society and Centrelink.
We have also commenced construction of the new TasPorts control centre at the site.
Parking in this area is abundant and the site also offers in excess of 1000m2 of top quality warehousing which lends itself ideally for an integrated redevelopment.
We are now seeking Expressions of Interest from business people interested in establishing their business within the Gas Works site.
We will construct a premises for your approved business and then lease the property back to you the business owner.
