Brisbane CBD: The City’s Heart

    Categories: News

Brisbane central business district is at the city’s heart, comfortably sitting in a curve along the Brisbane River. The walkable urban center fascinates people with its heritage buildings that could be dated to as far back as the 1820s. Central streets are mostly named after members of the British royal family, a living reminder that the state and the entire continent was once a British colony. Adelaide, Ann, Alice, Charlotte, Margaret, Mary and Elizabeth are streets that run parallel to Queen Street Mall (honoring Queen Victoria) and Queen Street. These are perpendicular to streets named after male royal family members like Albert, George, Edward, and William.

Population density is at 379.4 people every square kilometer (there are only 2.2 square kilometers covering the entire CBD). That is relatively high for any Australian city, almost equal to the density of Sydney. Like most western cities, Brisbane is sprawling into the nearby greater metropolitan area. The population density indicates that most of the city’s housing stock is comprised of detached homes. Most houses are in miniature Queenslander-style types, resembling larger traditional homes but only a quarter in typical size.

If you would drop by, you would find that apartment blocks and other multi residence accommodations could still be considered new to Brisbane CBD. Only a handful of such blocks were constructed in the 1960s. Some pre-1950 homes were built apparently in the distinct Queenslander architectural style featuring timber construction, high ceilings, and large verandas. At present, there are only a handful of buildings found in Brisbane CBD that have heights of more than 200 meters.
