Closer look at new plan

El­len­bor­ough St Laneway precinct still part of vi­sion for Ip­swich CBD re­de­vel­op­ment

The Queensland Times - - NEWS -

IP­SWICH City Coun­cil wishes to clar­ify sev­eral points in re­gards to yes­ter­day’s QT story on changes to the CBD mas­ter plan.

The QT was this week given an ex­clu­sive look at a copy of the new mas­ter plan for the re­de­vel­op­ment, which con­tains sev­eral changes that were made af­ter a de­tailed re­view of the ex­ist­ing plan.

One of the points the Coun­cil wished to clar­ify was that the events stage will now be re­lo­cated to the cen­tre to cre­ate a more “flex­i­ble” area. A laneway precinct off El­len­bor­ough St is still planned for a later phase of the project, and re­mains an op­tion for fu­ture de­vel­op­ment.

Water mist­ing, ver­ti­cal water walls and a water foun­tain are part of the new plan. No changes have been made to the cen­tre­piece and first build­ing to be con­structed, the new Ip­swich City Coun­cil ad­min­is­tra­tion of­fices. Read­ers may have also found one of the pic­tures that ap­peared in yes­ter­day’s pa­per con­fus­ing.

The lat­est plan draw­ings have been in­cluded with this story.
