Plans for an innovative master planned, mixed-use development in West End’s iconic Boundary Street precinct have been unveiled after extensive community consultation.
The $800 million West Village project will be a unique residential, retail, recreational and commercial precinct set on a significant 2.6 hectare site on the boundary of South Brisbane and West End.
Designed to be a vibrant community hub and dynamic new destination for Brisbane, the development will feature about 6500 square metres of publicly accessible open space including a 1400 square metre landscaped green space fronting Boundary Street, an 800 square metre public plaza and four new pedestrian laneways linking surrounding streets.
West Village project director Andrew Thompson said a development application for the project was submitted to Brisbane City Council yesterday.
“The community has been very vocal in their desire for green space as part of this project,” Mr Thompson said.
“We have investigated a number of design options and this master plan allows us to incorporate as much green space as possible while delivering imaginative architecture and world-class urban design and sustainability to create a landmark destination.
“The South Brisbane Riverside Neighbourhood Plan requires us to deliver public open space as part of the development. Our proposed design allows us to deliver 25 per cent more public open space than what is required under the South Brisbane Riverside Neighbourhood Plan.”
