Lendlease has launched a new Queensland Masterplanned Community called Springfield Rise, set to be made up of around 4,000 new homes in Spring Mountain.
Springfield Rise will sit between Springfield Central and White Rock Spring Mountain Conservation Reserve, connecting directly to Springfield Lakes.
Minister for Transport and Minister for Infrastructure and Planning Jackie Trad, and Ipswich Mayor Paul Pisasale joined Springfield Land Corporation and Lendlease for the official launch celebration.
With over 560 lots already sold, the 415-hectare site will deliver approximately 4,000 homes comprising more than 50 hectares of open space, including 13 local parks, three district parks, natural linear reserves, kilometres of walking and hiking tracks and cycling paths connecting to the Springfield town centre.
“Springfield Rise at Spring Mountain is a great opportunity to be part of a master planned community with amenities that create great places and with residents able to enjoy the amenity of Springfield Lakes,” Lendlease Managing Director of Communities Matthew Wallace said.
Deputy Premier Trad said that the region would be a significant driver of jobs and economic development in coming years.
“This new community will deliver 675 construction jobs per year over the next ten years and more than 500 ongoing jobs once completed," she saidCurrently under construction are Forest Ridge and Park Lane, Springfield Rise at Spring Mountain’s first residential addresses, with lots ranging in size from 240 square metres to 640 square metres. Land is priced from $170,000 for a 240 square metre block.
Amenities include an expanding Orion Springfield Central including cinemas, cafes, and restaurants with Orion Lagoon across the road. Health City, a unique 52 hectare medical and wellness precinct is nearby, incorporating the planned 1,200-bed Mater Private Hospital.
Residents will enjoy easy access to an extensive range of private and public schools, including a new primary school planned for Springfield Rise at Spring Mountain. Opportunities for further study are available too, with the University of Southern Queensland adjacent to the project.
Springfield Rise at Spring Mountain is located 17 kilometres from Ipswich CBD and approximately 28 kilometres from the Brisbane CBD, and linked to Brisbane’s International Airport by the Gateway Motorway, and the Gold Coast via the M1.
