    Yeerongpilly Green to bloom with $30 million in parks and public infrastructure

    The Palaszczuk Government has invested $30 million in community infrastructure and green space for the new $850 million master-planned Yeerongpilly Green development.

    Visiting the site today to inspect early works Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the infrastructure project provided a significant boost to Queensland’s construction industry.

    “Over 6600 jobs will be created during the construction of Yeerongpilly Green and once complete, more than 1000 people will be working in the precinct,” Ms Palaszczuk said.

    “This is not only a vote-of-confidence in the Queensland economy but the significant investment by my government will deliver 1.8 hectares of parkland and open space once the project is complete.”

    Deputy Premier and Minister for Infrastructure and Planning Jackie Trad said the $30 million investment would be delivered under an historic cooperative agreement between the Queensland Government and Brisbane City Council.

    “Yeerongpilly Green is transforming this part of Brisbane and it’s so important that we deliver the great community infrastructure we need as part of this project,” Ms Trad said.

    “Through this investment there will be one-hectare of parkland, cycle tracks and wide footpaths created across the Yeerongpilly Green site, delivering important green space and promoting an active community.”

    Member for Yeerongpilly Mark Bailey said the additional public spaces will breathe life into the community.

    “The parkland will give new and existing residents much-needed outdoor space and will allow the community to hold open-air events and festivals,” Mr Bailey said.

    “I know how important green space is to our growing community and I’m excited that this investment will deliver a great local outcome.”

    Consolidated Properties Executive Chairman Don O’Rorke said the project was a great example of the Queensland Government and the private sector working together.

    “We are delighted to working alongside the State Government to deliver jobs, a beautiful masterplanned community and make the best use of this 14 hectare site,” Mr O’Rorke.

    “We are conscious of the legacy this project will leave and are committed to creating beautiful sustainable homes and commercial spaces.”

    Yeerongpilly Green will eventually include 1,200 apartments and townhouses, boutique coffee shops, bars and restaurants, a supermarket, a 100-bed hotel and office buildings.
