15. City Reach by Archipelago


The design team at Archipelago Architects have focussed on a design concept for City Reach which embraces and celebrates the Brisbane River as part of this internationally significant ‘River City’.

This design vision includes a riverside promenade and increases the pedestrian connection to nearby city streets. Archipelago sees the City Reach idea as an opportunity to create an emblematic city space which is a people-oriented, city-scaled, urban river edge.
