Land and Homes Group noted on its website that it was considering developing the property. Those plans were deferred, LHM said it had resolved to do so until sufficient leasing commitments could be secured.

In a November 2020 market update, the company said due to the impact of Covid, the company would sell the Wharf Street property, with an eye instead to its Barry Parade project.

100 Barry Parade in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane, was acquired in September 2016, then a single storey commercial unit with two tenants.

LHM was looking to develop the project into a residential tower, and in October 2017, the company was granted development approval for 492 units across two towers, the project is expected to be completed by 2023.
