Brisbane's first Art Series hotel, The Johnson, is due to open in September. Named as a tribute to Sydney-born artist Michael Johnson, the $155 million redevelopment of Boundary Street's modernist Karl Langer building will combine residential apartments with about 83 guest suites and a 50-metre pool.

A second 150-room Art Series property, a national flagship for the group, is taking shape at the 3.5-hectare riverfront Howard Smith Wharves site beneath Brisbane's Story Bridge, due to open mid-2017. HSW Consortium, a group led by Adam Flaskas and Elisha Bickle, the team behind the boutique hit Halcyon House at Cabarita Beach, is driving the redevelopment of the site, which will include public parks, a craft brewery, distillery, bakery and half a dozen restaurants, with involvement expected from Halcyon House chef Ben Devlin.
