The Waterfront Precinct master plan in Brisbane’s CBD focuses on giving the river back to the city and its people.

The vision for the 1.5ha historic site sees the creation of a revitalised city centre riverfront destination with generous civic spaces as a stage for city life.

Commissioned by Dexus, Arkhefield has worked closely with joint venture partner fjmt, Place Design Group, and Project for Public Spaces to develop a robust roadmap to achieve this vision, alongside key precinct stakeholders including the Queensland Government and Brisbane City Council.

The master plan creates an extended and active Riverwalk, along with two significant new public gathering spaces creating both precinct entries and direct visual and physical connections between the city and the river. Along with a new and extensive public realm, the project encompasses two new commercial towers, revitalisation of the existing Waterfront Place tower, and the addition of new dining precincts.

Focusing on the subtropical identity of the city, complementary places and spaces are offered throughout Waterfront Precinct to connect to the river and offer a uniquely Brisbane setting for business, life and culture.
