Rosalie Village Precinct Project

Brisbane City Council completed the streetscape improvement project in late 2023 to revitalise the Rosalie Village, Paddington shopping precinct.

Council worked with the local community to deliver an attractive, comfortable and connected centre for locals and visitors to use and enjoy.

This project is part of the Village Precinct Projects program (VPP) and Council’s commitment to create a city of vibrant neighbourhoods.

Community engagement

Council involved the local community in the planning for the Rosalie Village and public realm opportunities at the initiation phase in  September 2022. Local community then provided feedback on the proposed plan in February and September 2023.

The community feedback supported a streetscape upgrade that improved amenity, access and safety.

Delivered improvements

Improvements included:

  • upgraded sections of footpath to exposed aggregate concrete to improve accessibility, connectivity and amenity
  • new garden beds and additional street trees to improve visual and physical amenity
  • new seats, urban stools, bins and bike racks
  • additional traffic signage and linemarking for improved pedestrian and traffic safety at key locations
  • commissioned public art to enhance amenity and centre identity.

Sunset @ Rosalie Village

To celebrate the completion of the Rosalie Village, Paddington Village Precinct Project, Council held the Sunset@Rosalie Village activation during January 2024. A roaming jazz trio provided sunset music vibes over four nights while local community art group Hands on Art added to the festive atmosphere with firefly lanterns throughout the precinct.

The community and visitors to the Rosalie Village centre enjoyed live music while exploring the revitalised streetscape and discovered the dining, boutique retail and entertainment offerings.
