Greater Springfield and Ipswich have become an extension of the Brisbane metropolitan area and are almost now outer suburbs due to the increasing population and urban sprawl in Queensland’s capital. Improved transport infrastructure – such as new rail lines and upgrades to major roads – making it easy and fast to travel between Brisbane and the western corridor has also significantly bridged the gap.
On completion, the master-planned Greater Springfield will cover a total land area of 2,860 hectares and will have a total investment of $32 billion. There is plenty of growth and activity still to come in the area, with just 13% ($10.2 billion) having been developed since the project’s inception in 1992.
Spreading to the west this fast growth corridor leads off Brisbane through growth suburbs such as Springfield, Bellbird Park, Collingwood Park, Redbank Plains through to Ipswich and Ripley Valley most in reach of Brisbane Employment Hubs withing 30 min or Ipswich Employment Hubs in less time. Well serviced by Train and Bus services
Attracting a very strong population growth placing upward pressure on dwellings to own or rent the Western Growth corridor offers an affordable lifestyle but for how much longer the question remains
House and Land is a very popular product with an emergence of townhouses and a growing need for apartments to cater for those wanting smaller accommodating especially closer in to the cities of Brisbane and Ipswich. Another highly sought after dwelling is a Duplex, Dual Key or Dual Occupancy home with 3 or 4 beds on the one side to suit a family and 1 or two beds in the Auxiliary Unit to cater for those wanting to live in a 1 bed home
