Two important Queen Street Mall landmarks to go on plan for better connection to South Bank

“While Reddacliff Place is beloved by residents and offers an incredible view between the city and South Brisbane, it is currently privately owned,” Schrinner said.

“Our purchase of this site will preserve it as a public open space, ensuring that the weekly markets continue and allowing us to activate it day and night.”

The cost of that purchase for taxpayers was being negotiated, with guarantees from the City Council that it would be made public in due course.

Schrinner said the new shade structure along the pedestrianized Victoria Bridge would complement the Brisbane Metro-led upgrade of the Cultural Center bus station across the river in South Brisbane.

“A large number of pedestrians, including residents and visitors, already cross Victoria Bridge every day,” Schrinner said.

“This will increase significantly in the coming years under our plans to create thousands of new homes in the Kurilpa district of South Brisbane.

“Shading Victoria Bridge will significantly improve walkability between South Brisbane and the CBD, particularly during the hottest months of the year.”

As part of the strategy, the council would also look into revitalizing or relocating the Queen Street Mall stage area to encourage more frequent use.

Deputy Mayor Krista Adams said a “licensed activation area” was being considered in lieu of the current Pig ‘N’ Whistle.

“That will mean exciting new vendors and mall experiences on a regular basis, like a pop-up gin bar one week, a new tasting brewery the next, or a fabulous array of food trucks,” he said.
