The integrated resort and associated public realm works will be completed in 2022, with the repurposing of the Treasury Building, Land Administration Building, Queen's Gardens underpass and Old State Library running from 2022 to 2024.

The residential portion of the project (on the block containing The Mansions) has more leeway, to allow for changes to the residential market. It could be pushed out longer.

#UC (Earthworks): Queens Wharf Precinct Redevelopment

I think there is a time limitation that the residential portion has to be developed by, canít remember exact date, but think it was something like 2025. If it was still undeveloped by that date then it was to be handed back to the state govt.

#UC (Earthworks): Queens Wharf Precinct Redevelopment

With the South Bank Parklands vision of converting Glenelg St into a primary pedestrian thoroughfare/festival st, extending South Bank Parklands out to include Musgrave Park and the demolition of the South Bank Piazza, would the Pedestrian Bridge not be better suited then to land where the current riverside restaurants are been demolished?

On the map below theyíve drawn Russel St as extending through, but itís a basically a footpath through the basement of the BCEC. Glenelg St will become the major East West thoroughfare besides Melbourne St.

On the map below they’ve drawn Russel St as extending through, but it’s a basically a footpath through the basement of the BCEC. Glenelg St will become the major East West thoroughfare besides Melbourne St.

Musgrave Park is a significant barrier to the flow between the West End/South Brisbane neighbourhood and South Bank. And the bulk of the population accessing the South Bank precinct come from north of Russell St, as that's where the population density is. For that reason the Russell St walkway has become the predominant east-west access point to South Bank.

So I'm not really sure what great value the Glenelg St link will provide, unless they completely rework pedestrian access through Musgrave Park as it's little more than a dirt track and not particularly safe at the moment.

It would be better to focus on changing the traffic arrangements into the car park entrances/exits off Russell St and Grey St to further improve the pedestrian access through that link.

For those coming from North of Melbourne St where the current density is they are better served by going via Melbourne St, if not now they will be once the area is pedestrianised further through the Metro development:



Musgrave Park is getting included into the wider South Bank Vision and improved, hence raising the comment. The plan is for a wide subtropical boulevard to extend from the western side of Musgrave through to the riverfront, with the option to tunnel Merivale St under the Glenelg st:



This will then connect into an improved Musgrave Park including indigenous cultural facilities, it may be considered Ďunsafeí now but one way to fix that is by improving access, lighting and lifting the number of people using it. Its a great asset for South Brisbane, we shouldnít avoid it because of past misgivings:



Russell Walkway has its purpose, but given its limitation on been improved, its long term role is as a secondary connection to Melbourne and Glenelg St

I think we're missing the real point of the bridge. It isn't intended to maximise intra-suburb linkages between the CBD, South Brisbane and West End, and I doubt any thought was given to that aspect.

The bridge serves the same purpose as the bridge between Jupiters and the GC Convention Centre - as a direct link between the resort and it's hotels, and the event destinations of QPAC and BCEC. This was especially important when Star were looking like getting their own theatre, by way of the missing piece of QPAC. However, the State Govt shot that aspect of the project down fairly early on.

I donít disagree with that being the reason why, doesnít mean I think itís the best option for the wider community though. Back when it was first proposed the Metro wasnít a thing nor had the new Southbank Vision been released. Heck going straight across to Glenelg St is a shorter span, might actually work out cheaper for them.

I'm still disappointed that this complex is not going to have a theatre/auditorium like The Star in Sydney and Jupiters on The Coast. I know we hope for a new theatre somewhere but big live shows seem to go hand in hand with casino resorts and it just seems like we have been cut short with this one.

This one will involve gutting the Old State Library, so not sure if that will get anywhere.
