Wikipedia provides a good introduction to South Brisbane. However, to say that ” South Brisbane has emerged as fashionable, high density, modern residential area, given its proximity to the city centre and good public transport links.” leaves out the colour vibrancy and diversity that continues to thrive around the Kurilpa Peninsula.
The suburb shares the upheaval of history with its sister suburb, West End. South Brisbane’s hsitory can be bookmarked by European sttlement, the building of the Railway Station and World Expo ’88.

Brisbane Common Ground
Brisbane Common Ground is an innovative, supportive housing development under construction at 15 Hope Street, South Brisbane. The design and function of the apartment complex is adapted from a model of supportive housing first pioneered by Roseanne Haggerty in New York City 20 years ago.
When it opens in mid-2012, Brisbane Common Ground will provide 146 studio and one-bedroom units for people on low incomes and people who were formerly homeless.
There is a nationwide impetus to address homelessness in real, measured terms.
The Australian Government in its White Paper on Homelessness, The Road Home, has set nationwide targets, to be achieved by 2020, of reducing overall homelessness by half and offering housing to all people who sleep rough.
The Queensland Government has committed to these targets and together, through the National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness, governments are funding housing and support services focussed on providing permanent solutions to homelessness for individuals and families.
Through creative design, services, affordability, and social mix, Brisbane Common Ground aims to meet the needs of people who have lived on the streets. People will have a permanent home providing safety and security, and the services required to sustain their tenancies and be active members of the community.
In the spirit of ‘homelessness is everyone’s responsibility’, Brisbane Common Ground is being delivered through a government-business-community partnership. The capital cost and support services are being funded by the Australian and Queensland Governments and the building constructed by Grocon at cost. The onsite support services to tenants will be provided by not-for-profit organisation Micah Projects. A not-for-profit property and tenancy manager will also be part of the partnership.
