WEST END'S $800M DEVELOPMENT UNVEILED

Written on the 3 May 2015

WEST END'S $800M DEVELOPMENT UNVEILED PLANS for West End's landmark West Village project have been unveiled.

The $800 million mixed-use development will encompass residential, retail, recreational and commercial on a 2.6ha site.

The plans come after extensive community consultation, taking into account the residential nature of West End and high forecasted population growth, among other things

The development will feature about 6500sqm of publicly accessible open space including a 1400sqm landscaped green space fronting Boundary Street, an 800sqm public plaza and four new pedestrian laneways linking surrounding streets.

West Village project director Andrew Thompson says the community was particularly vocal about the need for green space.

The project has been negotiated to incorporate 25 per cent more public open space than what is required under the South Brisbane Riverside Neighbourhood Plan.

"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," says Thompson.

"We love West End's unique community spirit and have put a lot of thought into how we can incorporate this into West Village, as well as paying respect to the historic factory buildings."

The community will also welcome up to 1350 apartments over seven buildings of various heights, the revitalisation of two heritage-listed buildings, a 450-space commercial public carpark, parking for 1600 bicycles and 500sqm dedicated for community or recreational uses.

More than 2400 jobs will be created during construction, which begins October, and an additional 860 long-term jobs.

Construction of apartments is expected to begin mid next year, with the first residents likely to move in around late 2017.
