South Bank building projects

Exciting new building projects around South Bank

There are a number exciting new construction projects underway in and around QPAC. Here’s a brief run down.

New Performing Arts Venue for QPAC

In May 2018, the Queensland Government announced it would invest $125 million over four years to deliver a new $150 million theatre on the Playhouse Green at QPAC.

The major impacts at the present time:

  • closure of the Grey Street footpath adjacent to the site
  • narrowing of lanes of Grey Street 
  • closure of right-hand turn into Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre car park from Grey Street.
