    Queen's Wharf Brisbane Priority Development Area Public Realm and Movement Network Planning and Design Guideline

    Contents

  • Purpose and context PurposeThe purpose of this guideline is to provide a framework

    to guide the design and delivery of the public realm and movement network within Area A of the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane Priority Development Area (PDA) (refer to schedule 4 of the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane PDA development scheme).

    The primary objective of this guideline is to ensure the delivery of high-quality public realm outcomes and a movement network that is legible, permeable, connected and enhances pedestrian amenity in the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane PDA. This guideline establishes five guiding principles. Specific guidance is provided for each of these principles in order to achieve this objective. Innovative and alternative solutions will be considered on their merit.

    This guideline should be read in conjunction with the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane PDA development scheme and other relevant PDA guidelines and practice notes. The development scheme provides that development demonstrates practical conformance with this guideline. The guideline will be used as a tool to inform and support the development assessment process in accordance with the provisions of the development scheme.

    Context The Queen’s Wharf Brisbane PDA consists of approximately 26.8 hectares of land and water in the south-west corner of the Brisbane city centre including approximately one kilometre of Brisbane River frontage. The redevelopment of the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane PDA provides the opportunity to reshape Brisbane and reinvigorate this underutilised part of the Brisbane city centre.

    Brisbane’s first roads, wharves and infrastructure can all be traced back to the PDA. The PDA includes eleven places entered on the Queensland Heritage Register as well as archaeological places and places listed on the local heritage register. The PDA also contains government buildings including the 1 William Street tower. The Riverside Expressway, an elevated concrete multilane roadway, traverses the PDA along the northern bank of the Brisbane River. The Riverside Expressway is Queensland’s busiest roadway creating challenges for both the public realm and movement network within the PDA.

    Guiding principles

    Queen’s Wharf Brisbane PDA will become a distinct place where the people of Brisbane and Queensland can engage with the Brisbane River and our history and domestic and international visitors will enjoy a memorable Queensland experience. Development in the PDA will deliver public realm design and placemaking initiatives that contribute to the creation of an authentic and particular Brisbane identity, appropriately responding to the physical context, embrace heritage values and shape a dynamic, high-quality and vibrant place for all people.

    Embedding subtropical design initiatives into the public realm and movement network provides an opportunity for the future environment to appropriately respond to Brisbane’s enviable subtropical climate, reflect a local character and identity and contribute to enriching our experience of the PDA. It also establishes a strong continuity between the public realm and the required subtropical design responses for buildings within the PDA and the broader Brisbane city centre.

    Functional The structure and design of the street and laneway network is critical to achieving the highest levels of amenity, accessibility, connectivity and legibility into and through the PDA. Building on the Brisbane city centre’s strong street grid and integrating with the broader transport system, the network is to be characterised by the clarity and ease of movement opportunities and experiences for pedestrians and cyclists. Streetscape and laneway enhancements will deliver safe and attractive urban places that appeal to a wide range of visitors. The quality of facilities and public realm design elements will deliver functional, durable and comfortable spaces that provide settings for a wide variety of activities.

    The guideline establishes the following five key design principles to guide best practice planning and urban design in the PDA.

    Under each guiding principle sits a number of elements which represent the most critical aspects that need to be addressed in the delivery of the public realm and movement network in the Queen's Wharf Brisbane PDA.

    Elements:

    Heritage

    Subtropical design

    Art

    Elements:

    Streets, laneways and intersections

    Amenities and hardscape 6

  • Inviting The redevelopment of the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane PDA will create an inviting place that engages with the northern bank of the Brisbane River and activates this important place in the Brisbane city centre. A critical component of this will be significant public realm interventions that improve the amenity around and underneath the Riverside Expressway,
