This revitalisation strategy encompasses the southern quarter of South Bank which contains the Queensland Maritime Museum, Queensland College of Art, and Goodwill Bridge. The strategy was undertaken concurrently with a master plan for the remainder of South Bank by Urbis.
The strategy proposes the removal of three roads enabling pedestrianisation of nearly all the precinct, with a new road brought in from Tribune Street facilitating this outcome. The new road provides the College of Art with an accessible street frontage not presently available to it, enabling potential redevelopment.
The strategy creates approximately 1 hectare of new open space and the provision of a vital waterfront link between South Bank and Kangaroo Point.
A new maritime museum is proposed, replacing existing dilapidated facilities, with an option for a further extension. The existing historic dry dock is retained and a number of heritage dock buildings are restored.
The road removal provides for a connection between the maritime museum and the South Brisbane Memorial Park, offering a richer experience of Queensland’s maritime and naval history.
