About The Wool Stores.
“The first wharf was built by Dalgety and Co in 1907 – their primary business being wool and gold, and so, shortly followed the construction of Teneriffe’s beloved wool stores. Vernon Terrace’s Winchcombe Carson Woolstore was built in 1910, followed by the Australian Mercantile Land and Finance Woolstore in 1911. Fast forward to the 1950s, and another nine Woolstores had made their mark along the Brisbane river, designed by well-known architects to represent the commercial success Australian wool producers experienced in the early 20th century.
During World War II, the navy requisitioned the Woolstores and their wharves to form Australia’s largest submarine base, housing around 60 submarines based at Teneriffe. The facilities were home to both American and British officers, referred to as ‘Capricorn Wharf’.
When Brisbane’s major port opened further upstream, the Woolstores, wharves and railway all closed, left in an unused state of decay. In the late 1980s, this once booming industrial centre had transformed into a state of economic stagnation, urban decay and crime. Slipping into a ghost town of degeneration, something had to be done to bring life back to Teneriffe.
Therefore, an urban renewal taskforce was established in 1991, responsible for revitalising roughly 730 hectares of derelict industrial land primarily in Teneriffe, Newstead and New Farm. The project centred around transforming the old Woolstores buildings into upmarket apartment residences, starting in 1995 and finalising in 2000”. History of Wool Stores by Emma Atkin 2018.
