The New ABC Building in South Brisbane

Our public broadcaster reflects a commercial network

The ABC is relocating its Queensland headquarters to a purpose-built broadcasting facility on the corner of Grey Street and Russell Street, South Brisbane, situated between the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) and Griffith University’s Queensland Conservatorium of Music. This move is known as the Brisbane Accommodation Project.

The ABC evacuated its Toowong site in December 2006 over concern about staff health and safety following the identification of a cancer cluster.

The Queensland Government worked closely with the ABC throughout the site selection process, and in December 2008 ABC Managing Director Mark Scott announced that the new location had been confirmed at South Bank.

On October 30, 2009, the Queensland Premier, Anna Bligh MP, and the Federal Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government, Anthony Albanese MP, announced joint State and Federal Government funding for the collocation of the Queensland Symphony Orchestra (QSO) with the ABC in its new building at South Bank.
