Kurilpa Riverfront Renewal plan area
Kurilpa is located just across the river from the Brisbane CBD and just a short stroll from many of Queensland’s most popular cultural and lifestyle precincts including the Queensland Cultural Precinct, South Brisbane, South Bank, West End, Caxton Street and Suncorp Stadium.
The plan area comprises more than 25 hectares and one kilometre frontage to our iconic Brisbane River. Predominately occupied by industry and factories, Kurilpa will transform over the coming years into a world-class riverfront destination.
With an outstanding location in Brisbane’s heart – accessible by the Kurilpa, Go Between, William Jolly and Victoria bridges – Kurilpa offers a logical extension to the CBD. Kurilpa will complement and leverage off the success of its neighbour the Queensland Cultural Precinct, home to the state’s leading arts and cultural institutions including the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art, Queensland Museum and Sciencentre and Queensland Performing Arts Centre which attract more than 4.8 million visits a year. Kurilpa is also within minutes of the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre at South Bank which hosts 1300 international and national events each year, including the 2014 G20 Leaders Summit.
Large flexible redevelopment sites facilitate the opportunity to create a new city-defining neighbourhood supporting 11,000 new residents and 8000 employees. As the largest urban regeneration opportunity in Brisbane’s inner city, Kurilpa will contribute to and benefit from the expected doubling of Brisbane’s GDP to A$270 billion in the next 20 years.
