Spotlight on: Greater Springfield, Brisbane – part 3

Missed Part 2 of our Greater Springfield series? Read it here.

Just east of Ipswich, and within a half hour drive of Brisbane’s CBD, lies Greater Springfield – one of Australia’s most ambitious master-planned cities.

With two rail stations, and direct, non-stop access to Brisbane airport, Greater Springfield’s vision is to become a world-class regional city and services hub by 2030. And by the time development is complete, an expected $85 billion will have been spent on infrastructure and commercial and residential construction.

Greater Springfield has 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 3: Technology

As the final key pillar, Technology has been an important driver in Greater Springfield’s establishment as an innovative ‘smart city’.

Greater Springfield has its own Digital Master Plan – a digital eco-system that businesses can easily connect to and integrate with their own products and systems.

The Greater Springfield community also has access to intelligent platforms and data to enhance their lifestyle, health, education and business performance.

This investment in technology and development of a state-of-the-art working environment has resulted in companies, such as GE, relocating their state headquarters to the area, and plans to entice tech giants such as Google and Microsoft being discussed.
