The $52 million redevelopment of the Brisbane Racing Club will deliver not just world-class racing facilities at Eagle Farm and Doomben, but a vibrant new community where people will live, work, shop and socialise.
Urbis has managed the planning approval process for this major redevelopment – a mix of retail, residential and commercial. Our work for the club drew on several areas of Urbis’ expertise; we delivered social and economic impact assessments, conducted community consultation and advised the club on heritage and conservation issues.
The $52 million upgrade of Eagle Farm Racecourse includes the design of rejuvenated and highly activated public plazas as well as the world leading new thoroughbred stable facilities and patron entry tunnels within the infield of the track.
Working closely with the club, Urbis prepared a detailed urban design and public realm strategy focused on fashioning unity and coherence across the sprawling 90-hectare mixed-use site. Our landscape architects have designed and overseen the construction of the important grandstand precinct upgrade as well as the new world leading infield stables facility.
The new precinct will be a place where people live and a thriving community grows – and where the history of racing in Queensland is celebrated.
