A new forefront for Brisbane
The $2.1 billion transformation of the Eagle Street Pier and Waterfront Place precinct into Brisbane’s premium business and leisure destination has received development approval from Brisbane City Council.
Waterfront Brisbane is set to deliver a global-standard business and tourist destination that aims to maximise its prime riverside location with enhanced open spaces and amenity and a revitalised premier waterfront dining hub. Dexus’s commitment to a significant investment in public infrastructure and open space aligns with the council’s Rivers’ Edge Strategy.
The approved design incorporates:
- two new towers with a combined 120,000sqm of office space
- enhanced retail offering
- substantial improvements to the riverwalk
- large public plazas opening on to the river
- a widening of the riverwalk to at least six metres for the full length of the site
- ramping to allow cyclists ease of access to street level
A vibrant riverfront
Waterfront Brisbane delivers on many opportunities from Brisbane City Council’s City Reach Waterfront Master Plan.
Dexus is making a significant investment at the river level to create a public and open space that is accessible 24/7. This will provide additional public realm, a bustling retail strip featuring cafes and direct access to end-of-trip facilities. New moorings for commercial craft, including river taxis, and a new CityCat terminal will contribute to the riverfront ambiance. The construction of Waterfront Brisbane will be a staged delivery with the works on the Eagle Street Pier site to commence in 2022 and the first tower expected to complete by 2026.
The Riverwalk will close when construction commences in 2022 and reopen in 2024. Safe pedestrian and cycle access past the site during this time will be a priority. The second tower will be built at a later stage.
