Located in the heart of the inner-city suburb of West End, West Village is just a short walk to the South Brisbane Cultural Precinct and 800m from Brisbane’s CBD with a host of public transport options nearby. 

Designed around the historic Peters Ice Cream & Ice Cream Cone Factories, it offers contemporary residences, green spaces, restaurants, cafés and bespoke providores.

Masterplan
Features

Events

West Village has activated the site by modifying or retrofitting existing features to create new environments, event spaces and experiences that promote Real Living and Living History and invite the wider community to engage in and become part of the urban heritage village they are creating. Events for the past year include:

  • The annual Brisbane Ice Cream Festival
  • Fromage Laneway
  • Opera in the Laneway
  • The West Village Gardener
  • West Village Twilight Kids
  • Eco Workshops
  • Pop Up Stores
  • The Deck Series
 

Heritage and Parkland

The Peters Ice Cream and cone factories were built in 1928 and 1929 respectively and have heritage protection status.

The original forecourt in front of the Ice Cream Factory was reinstated and transformed into The Common publicly accessible parkland. On completion the site will have 1ha of open green parklands and laneways including two parks facing Boundary and Mollison Streets.

 

Public Art

West Village has taken the unique approach of engaging visual artists to assist in the evolution of the public realm and shared spaces. - Renowned Australian artists David and Yuge Bromley have embellished key facades within the Park and Lexington Residences and throughout The Common.

Their distinctive statues feature across the site and they designed a shared workspace for residents featuring a light installation and table that exhibits their unique style. - The Light Garden is also a feature of The Common, created by Jason Bird for Luxxbox.

The contemporary light art installation is a visual exploration of pattern through light. The enchanted piece features more than 2,500 individual light reeds allowing intricate patterns to be programmed, evoking a sense of calm and wonder.

 

Retail

West Village is bringing together a mix of established, innovative and emerging retailers. This proposed mix, set within buildings with a unique heritage and architecture, will provide a destination like no other in Brisbane.

West Village has Woolworths as its anchor tenant, opening their doors in 2020 and providing the latest concept in full-line supermarkets. This landmark supermarket will feature premium meat and specialty cheese rooms, an artisan style bakery, in-store sushi and healthy bites, complemented by the best fresh fruit, vegetables, flowers and grocery staples available, in a modern market style environment. Joining Woolworths in 2020 will be a 1,500m² Fresh Food Market along with a major fitness, gym and lifestyle operator. A further 20 vendors will complete the retail offering including a chemist, medical centre and childcare centre.

A fast-tracked construction program will see 450 retail carparks available to the public.

 

Sustainability

In November 2017, West Village received the highest sustainability rating for master-planned precincts in Australia, following the achievement of Six Star Green Star – Communities certification from the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA). With over 50% of the precinct covered in greenery, Sekisui House has created a lush subtropical environment in the heart of an urban setting. This also meets Green Star accreditation standards for mitigating ‘urban heat island’ effects. Other green initiatives and outcomes that have contributed to West Village’s world leadership status include:

  • 100% of energy to site will be carbon offset through an embedded network.
  • More than 80% of construction waste is being recycled and diverted from landfill.
  • One of Australia’s largest car share systems will service the precinct, with 10 GoGet car share pods.
  • 1,600 bike racks plus end-of-trip facilities encourage active commuting for residential and commercial tenants.
  • Six electric vehicle charging stations will feature in the public carpark. A 50Kl/day grey water recycling plant will use water discharged from hand basins and showers for landscape irrigation – essentially drought-proofing the extensive gardens and public spaces.
  • Shared community gardens feature herbs, bush foods and native plants.
  • Four installed beehives housing around 160,000 bees are yielding an estimated 160kg from three honey harvests every year.
  • Targeting 100% of organic waste from food retail to be diverted from landfill and recycled into biofuels and compost.
  • A food rescue partnership and dedicated cold room will see excess perishable food donated to local charities.
  • Measures to ensure stormwater discharge quality adheres to strict environmental standards.
