About the Project

The Northshore Hamilton Streetscape is designed to provide a continuation of the Riverside Café and Parkland theme

The streetscape continues the parkland’s overarching design theme by integrating planting and material palettes. The streetscape design promotes water retention through a kerb-less central location and treatment swale and recycled concrete rubble for channel lining and scour protection. 

The project involved the redevelopment of former port riverfront land. All phases for the project were successfully delivered on time and within budget and to the satisfaction of the Port of Brisbane. PDT demonstrated the ability to work seamlessly with Vivo and the team of sub consultants. They showed commitment to the project and the Port of Brisbane as a valued client. I have no hesitation in recommending PDT Landscape architects to future clients

Water-sensitive urban design measures have been incorporated in the design with recycled materials including the use of recycled concrete for drainage gravels, and the inclusion of site-salvaged shipping bollards and recycled dock timbers. The strong emphasis on sustainable design makes the streetscape a prototype for future development within the site: the goal is to prompt future works to better or equal this first effort.
