South Brisbane Recognised as Key Global Precinct

October 25, 2017 – Community, Featured

South Brisbane (including Kurilpa) has been recognised as one of eight Brisbane precincts with the potential to help Brisbane attract investment, foster innovation, encourage tourism and elevate its international reputation as a new world city.

A global precincts strategic vision, released by Brisbane City Council and its economic development board Brisbane Marketing, has identified an approach to evolving the city’s precincts through partnerships with investors and stakeholders.

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said the vision set out a coordinated approach for Brisbane to be an internationally recognised city in which to live, learn, invest and grow; through the development of specialised precincts around the city and suburbs.

The eight priority areas are:

  • South Brisbane (including Kurilpa)
  • Boggo Road/PA Hospital/University of Queensland
  • Herston/Kelvin Grove
  • Upper Mt Gravatt/Eight Mile Plains
  • City Reach
  • City West
  • Australia TradeCoast
  • Valley Gateway

These precincts span 10km and their combined contribution to the city accounts for 37 per cent of employment, more than 60 per cent of exports and 49 per cent of gross regional product.

Business South Bank is a membership based organisation representing the South Bank precinct. BSB has more than 125 corporate members representing a workforce of approximately 15,000.
