SPUR Supports Housing and Density at Brisbane BaylandsJune 26, 2018
SPUR has supported and continues to support Universal Paragon Corporation’s (UPC) plans for 4,400 homes, 300 acres of open space and more than 7 million square feet of other commercial uses at the Brisbane Baylands. However, we understand that the city is moving forward with a plan that would include as few as 1,800 housing units and approximately 4.4 million square feet of commercial uses. To accommodate the growth of Bay Area we must add housing and jobs in places on regional transit to avoid exacerbating climate change, increasing traffic congestion and increasing the cost of living in this already-expensive place. SPUR urges Brisbane City Council to work with UPC to identify a plan that works for the Brisbane community, the needs of the region and neighboring cities, and the reality of development conditions.
