布里斯班快速走出南部陰影

據澳大利亞人口學家伯納德·鹽(Barnard Salt)的一份報告,重大的社會和經濟變化將推動布里斯班在未來十年內進入澳大利亞悉尼和墨爾本的大都會主要聯盟。

想像布里斯班在2027年預測,河城將經歷“變革追趕階段”,並加入悉尼和墨爾本作為澳大利亞21世紀的商業和文化中心之一。

鹽先生說:“布里斯班一直堅定地踏入悉尼墨爾本聯盟的舒適小圈子。”

“悉尼和墨爾本似乎不再像澳大利亞經濟與世界其他地區相聯繫的唯一入口。

“今天在悉尼和墨爾本出現的規模,文化和生活方式將在布里斯班內被越來越多地吸收。

“悉尼和墨爾本仍將是重要的,到二零零七年仍然是主要城市,但布里斯班的興起將會降低其首要地位。”

據報導,布里斯班加強主要城市地位將受到人口增長,移民人數以及知識或高等教育勞動力崛起等因素驅動。

這些變化將改變人們生活的方式,並看到生物多樣性公約周圍的知識工作者社區和內郊區的發展

鹽先生說,布里斯班發展和增長的重大變化之一將是中央商務區3公里以內的住宅密度。

他說:“布里斯班的城市內部城市生活空間已經成熟。

“在2011年人口普查中,這個區域內幾乎三分之一的住房是獨立的住宅,而墨爾本和悉尼分別為9%和4%。

“布里斯班的內城生活方式有很大的空間彌補了悉尼和墨爾本類似地區提供的生活方式的差距。”

鹽先生表示,西端,毅力谷和新農場等知識型工人社區的興起以及郊區製造業的消亡將為內城市生活帶來更多的需求。

他說:“企業和其他知識型員工正在尋求城市的空間和距離的內陸城市的接近和舒適。

澳大利亞的這個運動在悉尼的紐敦和墨爾本的Fitzroy等地,在布里斯班的邊界街區越來越多。

“這些領域不僅提供了CBD和CBD邊緣知識型員工的工作機會,而且還提供澳大利亞領先的健康和教育機構的就業選擇。”

在西區,南布里斯班和高蓋山,邊界街區已經出現了轉型跡象,人口越來越富裕和受過教育。

鹽先生說:“邊界街區不僅僅是一個區域,而是一個從學生飛地轉向知識型工人社區的社區。

“這種變化正在加速邊界街區的高檔化。”

正在開發主要的綜合項目,例如西區西村8億美元和中央商務區30億美元的女王碼頭,以滿足布里斯班走上變革的十年對內城市生活的需求。

Brisbane Fast Emerging Out of Southern Shadow

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Significant social and economic change will propel Brisbane into Australia’s metropolitan major league with Sydney and Melbourne over the next decade, according to a report from Australian demographer Bernard Salt.

Imagining Brisbane in 2027 predicts the River City will experience a ‘transformative catch-up phase’ and join Sydney and Melbourne as one of Australia’s 21st Century business and cultural hubs.

“Brisbane is steadily and determinedly elbowing its way into the cosy coterie of the Sydney-Melbourne nexus,” Mr Salt said.

“No longer will it seem that Sydney and Melbourne operate as the only portals through which the Australian economy connects with the rest of the world.

“THE SCALE, CULTURE AND LIFESTYLE THAT IS PRESENT IN SYDNEY AND MELBOURNE TODAY WILL BE INCREASINGLY ABSORBED WITHIN BRISBANE.

“Sydney and Melbourne will still be important, still the dominant cities by 2027, but their primacy will be lessened by the rise of Brisbane.”

Brisbane’s step up to major city status will be driven by factors including significant population growth, immigration and the rise of the knowledge or tertiary-educated workforce, according to the report.

These gear shifts will transform the way people live and see the growth of knowledge worker communities around the CBD and within inner suburbs

Mr Salt said one of the major shifts in Brisbane’s evolution and growth would be increased residential density within 3km of the CBD.

“Brisbane’s inner urban footprint is ripe for residential density,” he said.

“At the 2011 Census, almost one-third of dwellings within this zone were separate dwellings, as compared with 9 per cent and 4 per cent in Melbourne and Sydney respectively.

“Brisbane’s inner-city lifestyle has a lot of ground to make up to close the gap with the kind of lifestyle on offer in similar parts of Sydney and Melbourne.”

Mr Salt said the rise of knowledge worker communities such as West End, Fortitude Valley and New Farm, and the demise of suburban manufacturing would create more demand for inner-city living.

“Corporates and other knowledge workers are seeking the proximity and amenity of the inner city over the space and distance of suburbia,” he said.

“This movement in Australia is exemplified in places like Sydney’s Newtown and Melbourne’s Fitzroy, and increasingly in Brisbane’s Boundary Street Precinct.

“These areas all offer access not just to CBD and CBD-fringe knowledge worker jobs but also to employment options in Australia’s leading health and education institutions.”

Taking in West End, South Brisbane and Highgate Hill, the Boundary Street Precinct is already showing signs of transition with its demographic becoming increasingly affluent and educated.

“The Boundary Street Precinct is more than a precinct, it’s a community that is transitioning from student enclave to knowledge worker community,” Mr Salt said.

“That change is accelerating the gentrification of the Boundary Street Precinct.”

Major mixed-use projects such as the $800 million West Village at West End and the $3 billion Queen’s Wharf in the CBD are being developed to meet the increased demand for inner-city living as Brisbane embarks on its transformative decade.
