Wynnum SCIP renewal
Brisbane City Council has refurbished the Wynnum SCIP to keep the Wynnum Central area vibrant and well maintained. The refurbishment complements other improvements made in 2015 along Florence Street including a new library, park and community use centre.
The Wynnum SCIP was constructed in 2000 through a partnership between Council and local property owners, who both contributed 50% of the original project costs.
As part of the SCIP Asset Management Strategy, Council invested $500,000 in streetscape improvements in Edith Street, Florence Street and Bay Terrace, Wynnum.
In September 2015, the local Wynnum community had its say on the selection of a new artwork to be placed on the corner of Florence Street and Bay Terrace. Two choices were presented, Sand castle competition by Camille Serisier and Turning the tides - turtles can skate by Lucas Salton.

The winning concept was Sand castle competition with 62% of votes. The new artwork is located at the corner of Florence Street and Bay Terrace.
The Wynnum SCIP renewal builds on and improves the original SCIP design. The benefits include:
- a full upgrade to the bus stop in front of the IGA in Florence Street (DDA-compliant)
- new street furniture including bench seats, bicycle racks and drinking fountains
- upgrades to some sections of pavement
- new street trees suitable for Brisbane's subtropical environment
- tree pruning and replanting of selected garden beds
- re-painting existing pedestrian lights and bollards
- the new Sand castle competition artwork located at the corner of Florence Street and Bay Terrace
- restoration of current artworks in Edith Street and Bay Terrace.
Construction was completed in December 2015 and the new artwork was installed in early March 2016.
