South Bank Corporation was formed in 1989 to redevelop Brisbane’s Expo 88 site and to control development in the adjoining South Brisbane precinct.
Since that time South Bank has been transformed into Brisbane’s premier lifestyle, recreational, celebratory and cultural precinct and has won national and international awards for its urban renewal initiatives.
With its central riverside location, wide pathways, green spaces, barbeques, children’s playgrounds and the beautiful man-made Streets Beach, South Bank is a meeting place offering diverse activities, arts, educational and convention centres, and a creative and vital business precinct.
LandPartners has been the principle surveying company on the project site since Expo’ 88; responsible for lease surveys, stratum plan surveys and leasehold building unit plans.
The Master Plan around which the precinct has developed re-engages with the historic South Brisbane and West End street grid ensuring seamless integration with this developing area of the city. The plan is concerned with connectivity and accessibility – both visual and physical – and the Corporation understands the contributing role it plays in the commercial, residential, cultural and recreational life of Brisbane.
South Bank Corporation has received numerous awards from the Urban Design Institute of Australia and the Royal Australian Planning Institute since development first started in 1989.
