The Palaszczuk Government and South Bank Corporation are working together to develop a new masterplan that will revamp South Bank for the next 30 years and beyond.
Brisbane’s South Bank has seen many changes over the past few years, but they are set to continue. A team has been appointed to deliver South Banks 30-year masterplan.
“Future South Bank Group” is led by Urbis and also comprises of Arup, Cultural Capital, Cox Architecture, Complete Streets, London-based Gillespies and New York’s Projects for Public Spaces.
The group will deliver the 30-year vision which is currently open to public consultation. In September this year, a finalised draft masterplan will be released.
How Did South Bank Get to Where It Is Today?
Southbank has evolved drastically throughout the years.
The space that we all know today as manmade beaches, bars and restaurants originated as a meeting place for traditional landowners. It then transitioned to an early colonial port and busting industrial zone before being transformed to become the home of the World Expo ‘88.
Since then it has continued to evolve to the South Bank that we know and love today.
What is Changing?
Currently, Southbank and the surrounding suburbs are poorly connected for pedestrians to travel to and from. Part of the master plan is to consider how South Bank Connects to and complements its surrounding areas.
A finalised master plan is predicted to be released in September 2020 so keep an eye out for the changes that will be occurring!
