The Anglican Church of Southern Queensland is looking for market interest for approximately 2,500-sqm to 3,000-sqm of land forming part of the historic St Andrew’s Anglican Church grounds at 673 Lutwyche, Brisbane.

A lease by marketing agents Matthew Fritzsche and Andrew Burke of Ray White Special Projects reveal that the owner is seeking all opportunities for the site, including joint venture, lease, and partial sale.

Anglican Bishop of the Northern Region Jeremy Greaves confirmed the St Andrew’s Church will remain.

Bishop Greaves emphasized that the project should complement the church’s ongoing use. He said that it should respect the heritage value of the site.

A spokesperson from the Anglican Diocese of Brisbane added that the organization would be keen to speak to interested project partners if there’s an opportunity to make better use of part of St Andrew’s Anglican Church.

The site is located 5-kilometres north of the Brisbane CBD and a short drive to schools, shopping centres, and hospital.

It is zoned “CF4 Community Facilities (Community Purpose)” under the current Town Planning Scheme for the Brisbane City Council.
