Master Plan

Master Plan Concept

When Brisbane Markets Limited (BML) took over ownership of the Brisbane Markets, it laid the foundations for the redevelopment of the Rocklea site.

Throughout 2005/06, the proposal was revised and planning approvals obtained.

In December 2007, Brisbane Markets produced its Master Plan, a blueprint to provide insight into the range of development projects to be considered by BML. It was a planning document only, with all development suggestions identified subject for further assessment as to their feasibility and the level of support given by prospective tenants.

Much has been achieved since this time:

  • Purchase of an additional 9.7 hectares of land for the South Gate West precinct.
  • Construction of the South Gate East warehouse and office development.
  • Opening of the Western Access Road, creating a new entry to the Markets from Sherwood Road with a state-of-the-art security gate house, and a further 600 car parks.
  • Refubishment of the Fresh Centre (formerly Committee of Direction/Growcom building), an administration and retail block featuring cafe, training rooms, demonstration kitchen and Market services centres.
  • Construction of a 4,700mwarehouse in the north-western corner of the site.
  • Fence realignment behind the Commercial Centre, that allows better access for the public to offices, commercial tenancies and facilities of the Fresh Centre.
  • Upgrading of the Brisbane Markets Commercial Centre precinct including demolition of the former Commonwealth Bank to make way for a wider entry to the Brisbane Markets, a larger cafe tenancy, parking bays and safer pedestrian access.
  • Completion of the South Gate West Development Site civil works.

Works being considered:

  • Ongoing upgrade of the Commercial Centre’s upper level.
  • Development of Brisbane Markets Fresh Food and Flower Retail Markets.
  • Redevelopment of the Centre Courtyard area to modernise the Selling Floor areas.
  • Redevelopment of nine older warehouse buildings and the construction of new warehouses.
  • Expansion of the Commercial Centre precinct.

The ultimate aim is for the Brisbane Markets facility to have the flexibility to respond to stakeholder requirements and provide the highest order of facilities to meet the needs of the industry.
