Formatted abstract
The following report aims to identify the key success factors for transit oriented development. These factors, when implemented, result in a development that is appealing to users, functional and aesthetically pleasing. The identification of these success factors was achieved through analysis of current literature and existing transit oriented development sites. These factors were then categorised, to clearly identify what aspect of the planning and development process they influenced. The categories of success factors are; Design, Development, Institutional Arrangements, Planning and Public Transport. Stakeholders, representing a broad spectrum of the transportation industry, including private consultants, government representatives and academics, were consulted to identify the key success factors within each category. A combination of the survey results and general research findings were used to identify the key success factors. The application of these primary success factors to a potential transit oriented site in the SEQ region was then possible. The Toowong site was selected for detailed analysis due to its proximity to the city, the current mix of uses, centralised location over a rail station and potential for development. Site visits to Toowong highlighted key issues which need to be addressed as well as the development potential of the district. The design and development processes recommended for the site include; tunnels to divert the large volume of traffic currently traversing the site from the western suburbs of Brisbane and University of Queensland St. Lucia, a focus on the pedestrianisation of the site including shared zones on centralised streets, development of the current transit infrastructure including upgrading of the existing rail station and construction of a bus station, development of residential, office and retail buildings and improved design of the region including active street frontage and public spaces. The economic feasibility of these issues will be a contributing factor.
