Jackson Teece was engaged as joint Urban Designers for the preparation of concept plans for the public realm on this Transit Oriented Development (TOD) site. The Boulevard site is located approximately 3 kilometres to the south-east of Brisbane. It is flanked by the Buranda Railway Station to the north and the Buranda Bus Station to the west. The South East Queensland Regional Plan 2005-2026 identifies Buranda as one of eight TOD sites for primary consideration within the region. The proposed development supports a land-use mix that is conducive to transit including residential, office, retail, entertainment, community facilities and short-term accommodation.

One of the key objectives of the design is to create an inviting precinct that is integrated with the surrounding environment and communities. It provides key points of access to both the Buranda Rail and Bus stations from the neighbourhood. It also forms a bookend to the commercial development along Logan Road and has the potential to revitalise the existing business centre at Stones Corner. Being a site with varying topography, visual connectivity has been achieved from street level through regular breaks in the built form.

The design achieves a high degree of comfort and convenience for pedestrians and cyclists. Safety (CPTED issues) and legibility are an integral part of the design and the design features respond to the sub-tropical climate through hard and soft landscaping elements. The internal road network has been designed as a one-way shared zone at 10 km/h, giving priority to pedestrians and cyclists. An artwork and heritage interpretation strategy will be devised for these main public zones.

Jackson Teece was also engaged by the Client to develop an architectural vocabulary for the Precinct.
