Postcard from the future: “This place is fantastic – subtropical city, affordable lifestyle, very green, but vibrant and active. I don’t need a car, I can walk and cycle to the river, and the public transport is fast, frequent and legible. 108 Central has University, Medical, Research, Cultural, Commercial and Residential activities centred around the sub-tropical Town Square. The best food in Brisbane is in the Centre and the access to the River for recreation is the main asset. Come on over!”
