High life to trigger night life

  • BRISBANE’S high-rise apartment surge will finally kill off the city’s ‘dead after dark’ tag, turning the Queensland capital into a “seven-day city”.

That’s the upside of the city’s historic surge in apartment construction within 5km of the CBD, according to National Property Research managing director Matthew Gross.

He told a meeting of the Urban Development Institute of Australia (QLD) that over the next two to three years, the city’s night time economy would pick up speed significantly.

“A major benefit to Brisbane CBD and near city suburbs is that the quality of retailing, cafes, restaurants and night life will increase substantially. Brisbane will start to become a seven-day city.”



Brisbane inner city residents are expected to not just love the night life but create it over the next two to three years.
