A suburb with a long, mixed and vibrant history, Fortitude Valley has long been the beating heart of inner-city Brisbane. First settled in the 1840’s, and named after the vessel ‘Fortitude’, Fortitude Valley was a distant settlement from Brisbane and separated by hilly terrain. A relatively flood free area, Fortitude Valley became known for its commercial importance in the area with Thomas Finney purchasing a drapery business in Ann Street creating the Finney, Isles and Co department store.
Fortitude Valley’s connection by tram to Brisbane CBD in the 1890s cemented the suburb’s importance as a commercial centre with many large department stores establishing themselves in the area. With the introduction of this tram network providing access to Fortitude Valley and beyond, the suburb soon became the city centre outside of the city. Beyond department stores several industrial and manufacturing activities began to emerge in the area.
The suburbanisation of Brisbane in the 1950’s and 1960’s saw the attitude of consumers and residents change with the introduction of suburban estates and commercial centres. This change in consumer behaviour soon took its toll on the suburb causing many retailers to close, while the growing need for increased industrial manufacturing and warehousing soon outgrew available space.
Sitting stagnant until the late 1980’s, the completion of the Chinatown Mall development earmarked the turning point for Fortitude Valley reigniting interest in the suburb and drawing development back to the area. What was once unloved and abandoned department stores and warehouse facilities soon became some of Brisbane’s trendiest and most sought after Real Estate, a trend that remains today.
