7. Roma Street by Hassell
Hassell’s concept design for Roma Street focusses on unlocking the extensive opportunity presented by Brisbane’s North Quarter to realise a cohesive, relevant and legible new CBD precinct.
Hassell’s vision repositions Roma Street as a ‘central high-street’, an enhanced pedestrian experience with greater priority for people and city life. The simple sequence of modest interventions revealed in their vision for Roma Street unlocks the potential of the area to re-emerge as one of Brisbane’s most vibrant and engaging city precincts – capping the rail yards, opening up a new river edge and bringing the entertainment centre back into Brisbane.
