FRINGE AR­EAS ARE THRIV­ING

The Courier-Mail - Home - - MASTER BUILDERS QUEENSLAND -

Many young and grow­ing fam­i­lies in search of af­ford­able hous­ing are recog­nis­ing the ben­e­fit in mov­ing out of es­tab­lished cities and into ar­eas un­der­go­ing ma­jor devel­op­ment.

How­ever, con­trary to what peo­ple might think, mov­ing to outer fringe ar­eas isn’t al­ways syn­ony­mous with iso­la­tion, says Mas­ter Builders’ dis­play vil­lage man­ager Andrew Rock­ley. “In fact, this grow­ing res­i­den­tial mar­ket is be­ing catered for with the up­rise of mas­ter­planned cities,” he said.

“De­signed with live­abil­ity and life­style in mind, mas­ter­planned cities pro­mote com­mu­nity con­nect­ed­ness through ex­ten­sive recre­ational ar­eas, lo­cal in­fra­struc­ture and eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble pub­lic trans­port and the con­ve­nience of lo­cal ser­vices and other ameni­ties right on the doorstep – func­tion­ing as stand­alone cities in their own right.”

Mr Rock­ely said Spring­field Land Cor­po­ra­tion’s vi­sion for Greater Spring­field, in Bris­bane’s thriv­ing west­ern cor­ri­dor, was be­ing brought to life in what was re­ported to be the largest mas­ter­planned city in Aus­tralia.

Lo­cated about 30 min­utes from Bris­bane’s CBD, 15 min­utes from Ip­swich city, and 50 min­utes from the Gold Coast, Spring­field Rise at Spring Moun­tain is un­der devel­op­ment and en­vi­sioned to be an ur­ban ad­dress im­bued with an abun­dance of life­style and leisure op­por­tu­ni­ties.

“It will be home to about 12,000 res­i­dents and 4000 homes, with es­sen­tial in­fra­struc­ture right on the doorstep,” he said.

“From invit­ing streetscapes to nat­u­ral open spa­ces to din­ing and shop­ping precincts, there’ll be plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties to play and ex­plore.”

Mr Rock­ley de­scribed Greater Spring­field as south­east Queens­land’s fastest grow­ing re­gion, and added Mas­ter Builders and Lendlease would next year be un­veil­ing the Spring­field Rise dis­play vil­lage at Spring Moun­tain. He said the vil­lage, which will be Mas­ter Builders’ largest dis­play vil­lage in Queens­land, was set to fea­ture 54 homes built by 22 builders.

“Devel­op­ment has com­menced and we plan to open for trade in the lat­ter half of 2018,” he said.”How­ever, peo­ple don’t need to wait un­til next year to in­spect in­spi­ra­tional homes and take ad­van­tage of op­por­tu­ni­ties to buy house and land pack­ages in the great Spring­field re­gion.

“Head out to Mas­ter Builders’ award­win­ning Spring­field Lakes dis­play vil­lage at Sun­set Place to see 16 qual­ity homes built by 11 of Queens­land’s most rep­utable builders.”
