It receives over 26 million visitors each year. It was intended to bring more people into the central business district.HistoryThe mall was opened in 1982 when the section of Queen Street between Albert Street and Edward Street was partitioned off to form a pedestrian-only retail precinct. It was then extended to include the section of Queen Street between Albert Street and George Street in 1988, timed to coincide with Expo '88.The mall underwent a $25,000,000 refurbishment in 1999, which saw the terracotta tiling being replaced by granite. The Albert Street section of the mall was refurbished again in 2007. The Brisbane City Council announced in 2009 that Burnett Lane, a narrow laneway that runs between George Street and Albert Street, and parallel to the mall, would be refurbished and integrated into the Queen Street Mall precinct.
