Set underneath Brisbane’s renowned Story Bridge, the revitalisation of the historic Howard Smith Wharves precinct unlocks the full potential of this significant site. Since opening, the precinct has surpassed all visitor number expectations. Forecasts anticipate visitation numbers at 5.5 million domestic and 1 million international visitors annually.
A collaboration between our design, planning and heritage teams established the vision that has transformed the 3.43-hectare site including dedicating 80 per cent of the precinct to publicly accessible open space 24/7.
Bustling docks, tourism operators, amphitheatres, floating stage sets, children’s play and boutique accommodation are all set against the backdrop of dramatic cliffs and heritage wharf buildings.
After years of uncertainty, this iconic Brisbane precinct has once again come to life. We are proud to form part of the team that has guided the redevelopment of Howard Smith Wharves resulting in a sustainable and vibrant place, built around an elegantly robust landscape.
This development will unlock the full potential of this historically significant site-by transforming the location into a world-class tourism, recreation, lifestyle and event destination.
