West Village welcomes Metro Arts to West End
Sekisui House proudly announces that Brisbane’s Metro Arts will relocate in April 2020 from the Brisbane CBD to West Village, bringing West End its first live theatre in 25 years.
Metro Arts’ new West Village home will comprise a new underground theatre, two galleries, two rehearsal rooms, access to an outdoor event area and dedicated office space – a total of 680 sqm.
As a Founding Venue Partner, Sekisui House will make a significant contribution to the formation and fit-out of the theatre, gallery and creative spaces.
The Metro Arts creative precinct will sit within West Village’s 2.6-hectare master-planned site – which features the heritage-listed former Peters Ice Cream factory as its centrepiece – and is close to public transport and affordable parking while providing greater accessibility for artists and patrons of all abilities.
West Village Project Director Andrew Thompson said West Village was delighted to welcome Metro Arts to the vibrant precinct in 2020.
“West Village is a hub of constant activity and events that unites the community and contributes to its rich fabric,” Mr Thompson said.
“The West End community has a creative history and artistic heritage so the opportunity to stage live performances and bring new installations and experiences to the space adds a wonderful new dimension to West Village life.”
