Public Realm and Active Transport Study for Brisbane City Centre

ClientUrban Renewal, Brisbane City Council

LocationBrisbane, QLD


The Brisbane City Centre Master Plan 2014 delivers a coordinated strategy to guide future development, transport and public space investments over the next 20 years to ensure our city heart is safe, attractive and a continued source of pride.

Lat27, collaborating with PSA Consulting and QUT's Centre for Subtropical Design, prepared this study which identified new directions for the City’s public spaces to inform the preparation of the new City Centre Master Plan. A key focus was to strengthen the relationship between active transport and public realm conditions. 

Design strategies were developed that address the inner city public realm structure, gateways and connections, emerging activity trends, public realm detail and pedestrian/cyclist networks to name a few. This was underpinned by a comprehensive analysis of the existing City Centre character, function and market influences.

Interactive workshops and regular walking tours with Council Officers provided insight and aspiration to an exciting project of central importance to the ongoing health and vibrancy of the State’s principle centre.
