Vision South Bank

A 20 Year Vision for the wider South Bank precinct

Vision South Bank – 20 Year vision

Business South Bank (BSB) along with over 60 precinct stakeholders revisited and reinvigorated its 20-Year Vision for the wider precinct. Overlaying the opportunities of the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games and also taking into BSB’s broadened boundaries to include Woolloongabba, West End and top part of CBD.

The 2024 report reinforced the work of the 2017 report with particular emphasis on:

  1. Connection – improving key connections within and beyond the precinct, including major gateways, streets, river links, into the CBD and clear links to the Olympic venues.
  2. Global Destination – long-term plan for expanding the cultural, educational and tourism facilities. Particularly the opportunity to expand into the Kurilpa reach of the precinct.
  3. Inclusivity – a welcoming place for all, ensuring the core DNA of the precinct included feeling safe, First Nations representation, one that embraces technology.
  4. Sustainability – embracing and embodying sustainable practices that enhance our lifestyle.


The Vision South Bank Priorities report is an addendum to the 2017 Vision South Bank Report and presents what is considered priorities for the precinct.

  1. The first priorities that bring to life the 20-year shared vision of the precinct are:
    Key connector streets in the precinct
  2. Maximising open and green spaces & establishing micro-performance/art spaces to add to public amenity
  3. It is recognised that in order for connector streets and the maximisation of open and green spaces to be effective, the engagement of the community is required. BSB addresses this topic towards the end of the document.
