At the Heart of Townsville

The Developer
   Martin Locke

Martin Locke is a respected Townsville business leader, award-winning builder, advocate for accessible construction practices and former professional Rugby League player.



Martin has lived in Townsville with his family since 1995 when, while working as a plumber in South-east Queensland, he was signed by the North Queensland Cowboys.

After playing and then working for the Cowboys for 10 years, in 2005 he decided to again pursue his passion for construction and ultimately started his own building company in 2010.

Having lived in Sydney, the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane, Martin has chosen to live, invest and raise his family in Townsville for the past 25-years.

Flinders Lane is another example of his support of and commitment to the city of Townsville. Martin is passionate about creating a CBD experience that brings atmosphere and activity to the city and is committed to working together with other business operators and Townsville City Council to achieve that.

Flinders Lane is a shining example of how how the private and public sectors can combine to create great things.

A City   
coming of age

Townsville is a regional city that is growing up

The focus has shifted to creating a transformed, connected, dynamic and modern city environment with plenty to offer locals and visitors alike.

Through the Townsville City Deal between the Townsville City Council and the Queensland and Federal Governments has set a 15-year commitment to plan and deliver transformative outcomes to Townsville and its residents.

Flinders Lane is one of the keystone developments as part of the Townsville2020 plan designed to boost the economy, benefit the local community and generate tourism.

Flinders Lane links in with the Townsville City Council Waterfront Priority Development Area which will link and activate the Townsville Stadium, through to the CBD and through to The Strand.

The Goal is to have 30,000 living and working in the CBD by 2030.
