Spotlight on: Greater Springfield, Brisbane – part 2

Missed Part 1 of our Greater Springfield series? Read it here.

Greater Springfield in Brisbane has a vision to become a world-class regional city and services hub by 2030. By the time development is complete, an expected $85 billion will have been spent on infrastructure and commercial and residential construction.

Located just east of Ipswich, and within a half hour drive of Brisbane’s CBD, the area covers a total of 2,860 hectares – almost six times the size of Sydney’s Parramatta.

It’s been carefully designed around three key pillars – Education, Health and Technology – ensuring that sufficient infrastructure and employment opportunities are available to support the rapidly growing population – tipped to reach 138,000 by 2030.

In our latest Spotlight series, we take a look at each pillar, and provide some compelling reasons as to why you should consider this region as part of your investment portfolio.

Pillar 2: Health

With Health one of the three key pillars of Greater Springfield, the region has been designed to encourage a healthy community, with plenty of open, green space, and pedestrian and bike-friendly pathways.

Health City Springfield Central is a 52 hectare integrated health precinct providing health care facilities, medical research and aged care. The hub is home to the 80-bed, $85 million Mater Private Hospital which provides a range of medical and surgical services, as well as a cancer care centre.

And Australia’s largest dementia-friendly retirement village is currently under construction, with 2500 housing units planned. This will create 580 permanent jobs once the development is complete.
