The $29M award-winning DFO expansion represents the evolution of Skygate as an innovative community retail experience.

Hutchinson Builders transformed Brisbane Airport’s retail, commercial and lifestyle precinct Skygate with a major $29 million expansion to DFO, including new commercial office space, alfresco dining and a new multi-level car park.

Completed in September 2015, the expansion builds upon the established DFO retail experience. With a public art landscape space, external food precinct, and linkage spine to the existing retail centre, Skygate has expanded to become an exceptional community retail experience.
