Brisbane is set to get a massive makeover over the next few years. Back in February, we were informed of the new car-free bridge being built at Kangaroo Point next year. Turns out Eagle Street Pier is undergoing a huge transformation too. One so big that it will be closing down this year.
Eagle Street Pier is undeniably a favourite for walking and dining on the riverfront. Once it closes down within the next six months, it will be knocked down and revamped to make way for a brand-new waterfront hub in the biggest revamp since 1989.
Introducing you to Waterfront Brisbane. The upgraded Eagle Street Pier precinct will include a wider river walk so that it can accommodate more walkers and cyclists, two new office towers as well as a heap of new hospitality venues. The river walk is expected to reopen by 2024, whereas the rest of the precinct isn’t likely to open up to the public until 2026.
So although that may seem like a long time wait, we’ll be sipping on cocktails by the waterfront again in no time.
