News Corp Australia

Archipelago + Fairweather Architects have authored the master plan for a multi-billion dollar, mixed-used media hub to be built on the current site of News Corp Australia’s Queensland headquarters in Bowen Hills.

ENVISIONED AS AN EXTENSION OF THE BRISBANE CBD, THE MASTER PLAN WILL DELIVER THE ‘VISION’ FOR AUSTRALIA’S FIRST ‘MEDIAPOLIS’; COLLOCATING NEW KNOWLEDGE MEDIA BUSINESSES IN A WORLD-CLASS WORKPLACE WITHIN A VITAL AND VIBRANT URBAN PRECINCT.

 

The News Corp sponsored development plan has already attracted considerable national and international attention, and promises an exciting growth space for media innovation in Australia. In addition to housing the revamped News Queensland media offices, the Bowen Hills site will be further transformed into a thriving inner city district; complete with residential apartments, retail shops, parkland, restaurants, and lifestyle spaces.

By working to convert development challenges into win-win city making opportunities, Archipelago have been able to provide News Corp with a bold urban design strategy that completely repositions the possibilities for an exemplar urban centre.
