Brisbane City Council approved the project at Eagle Street Pier late last year. Included in the plan are two towers of 49 and 43 floors along with approximately 9,000 square metres of riverside public open space and a new 280-metre river-walk connecting Waterfront Place to the Riparian Plaza.
The new Riverwalk represents 1/5 of Brisbane’s City Reach Master Plan connecting Howard Smith Wharves to the Botanic Gardens and the new Kangaroo Point bridge. Instrumental in leading the planning and design process, is Place Design Group Managing Director, Shaun Munday, “this is truly a world class Brisbane inspired design of subtropical, inviting and dynamic public places connecting our city streets to the river. 2020 was such a tumultuous year, to be part of the Dexus team and bring the energy back to reinvigorate Brisbane’s golden triangle is extremely satisfying.”
Waterfront Brisbane will be a great outcome for Brisbane with the renewal of the city’s premium business district, activation of the river and improvements to the riverwalk. It is set to reshape the daily experience of the many people who visit and work there. The riverwalk will be delivered by Dexus, with construction set to begin in 2022.
