For those scared the heart of West End is losing its sense-of-self as a melting pot of community, culture and art, fear no more. Brisbanites can now lust over the plans to develop four new laneways celebrating foods of the world, boutique stores and buzzing markets! With the glooming towers of apartments buildings and offices slowing inching into the West End territory known as being an escape from the commercialisation of the city across the river, Sekisui House has released plans to develop new West End laneways that will keep the city’s sanctuary safe.
The allure of the 4101 postcode will only get more attractive with the Japanese development company set to construct 2.6 hectares of landscaped walking and cycling spaces, aptly named West Village.
Mollison Lane, Peters Lane, Wilson Lane and Factory Lane will span over 250 metres and will each have their own distinctive personality with occupant business reflecting its laneway’s character. Each lane will be publicly accessible and have a strong focus on the village’s aim of freshness and sustainability – sure to appeal to the local community strongly rooted in sustainable living. The rustic laneways will come to life with experiences ranging from dining, live entertainment, fresh food shopping and the list goes on.
The lanes are set to be one of Brisbane’s greatest attractions and will be strictly accessible by foot or bicycle to keep with West Village’s vision of a cleaner and more sustainable Brisbane.
The massive development will be planned and constructed over three stages and is set to be completed by 2023.
