The most iconic building in Brisbane to undergo a major transformation
The most influential building in Queensland’s capital has been gutted to make way for a modern-day commercial centre.
Key points:The building at the intersection of Broadway and Grand will be converted into a multi-million-dollar development and a residential developmentThe building has been a symbol of Brisbane’s multicultural heritageThe building is a landmark of the city’s multicultural historyThe Brisbane City Council has said it will “fully engage” with the heritage of the building and “restore its significance”The City Council will not “restart” the historic Brisbane building, but it will rebrand it as a residential building.
The Brisbane Heritage Centre was created in 1919, but has been plagued by issues.
It was built in the 1920s to replace the old Brisbane Theatre, but was built without proper planning and planning permission.
Its facade was covered in peeling paint and the building has never been finished.
The City of Brisbane has said its heritage is “of the utmost importance”.
The Brisbane Council said the decision to move the Brisbane Heritage Building would “restructure” the complex and ensure it is a modern building.
“This historic building is part of Brisbane and the City of Queensland’s cultural heritage, and will be used for many years to come,” the council said in a statement.
“Restoring its significance to the Brisbane community and restoring its iconic role in Brisbane’s history will be a massive undertaking.”
The project has been controversial for many people.
It is the biggest of its kind in Queensland, but its origins date back to the 1920’s.
It will be the largest residential development in Brisbane.
The site, on the corner of Broadway, and Grand, was designated a heritage site in 1920.
“The building was one of the largest of its time in Brisbane, and it was used as a public square by the city of Brisbane,” City Council heritage manager, Peter Bock, said.
“When it was finished in 1921, it was a very important part of the heritage site and was used for the public square.”
We want to make sure the Brisbane Cultural Centre continues to have a prominent place in the city, as well as in the world, as the city is an important centre of international tourism and cultural events.
“Mr Bock said the new design would be “remodeled” and modernised, and a new “cultural centre” would be built there.”
It will provide the building with a more modern feel, which will give it a more contemporary and vibrant feel, and make it even more iconic to Brisbane,” he said.
The new design will be “rebuilt to include a new residential community and a shopping precinct, as it will have a lot of retail in the front end of the development,” he added.
The council also said it would not “suspend” planning permission for the building.
But the project is currently being appealed.
The city said the project was “complex” and that “a decision on the heritage planning application is expected in the coming weeks”.
