Brisbane’s international airport terminal is set to get a $45 million facelift to showcase the city’s “enviable lifestyle”.
Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) says the redevelopment will create a unique gateway to the river city and set a global benchmark for terminal design.
BAC chief executive and managing director Julieanne Alroe says the improved arrival and departure areas would reflect the character of Brisbane and the spirit of Queensland.
“Queensland and our cosmopolitan capital city are among the most liveable places on the planet and this project gave us the opportunity to reflect our enviable lifestyle and natural assets,” she said.
While a Brisbane architect firm will design the terminal, global travel, transport and branding guru Tyler Brule has cast his eye over the project.
The redevelopment, the most ambitious project since the terminal’s opening in 1995, is set to get underway in February next year.
It’s due to be completed in mid-2015.
