Comprising of six suburbs, the area of Greater Springfield is a city in itself with over 7,000 acres of developable land. As only the second master-planned Australian city in history (the other being Canberra), the area is ripe with opportunity. Only 30 minutes to Brisbane CBD and 50 minutes to the Gold Coast, Springfield sits within the rapidly developing western corridor. While Greater Springfield already offers excellent transport connectivity, retail and commercial industries and a plethora of house and land as well as apartment developments, it’s what’s still to come for Springfield that’s got us all excited.

Things we love…
- The Springfield transport hub makes commuting to the CBD just over half an hour.
- One-third of the area is dedicated to green space and parks.
- Built with families in mind, there are a plethora of education options.
But remember that…
- If you choose to commute by car rather than on the train, expect long delays in peak hour traffic getting in and out of Brisbane.
- With a large number of lots still to come to the market, it may reduce the price of existing homes in the area.

One of the advantages of Greater Springfield as a master-planned community is the provisions that have been made for expansion into the future. Education is a key aspect of this. Currently, the area offers five early childcare centres in Springfield Central, five in Springfield, one in Brookwater, two in Springfield Lakes and two in Augustine Heights. There are ten primary and high schools in the region, with a mixture of public and private schools. Springfield West State School is also opening in 2019. Greater Springfield is also home to a University of Southern Queensland campus, The Studio of Performing Arts Springfield, Union Institute of Languages and TAFE Queensland South West campus.
Once completed, the Springfield CBD will occupy double the land size of Brisbane CBD and provide a wide array of commercial opportunities. With a myriad of large-scale leasing opportunities available, Springfield City Group projects the CBD will be able to offer employment to one-third of the city’s residents by 2030.
Alongside the commercial CBD, there are two expansive precincts planned: Health City and IDEA City. Plans for Health City are already well underway, with the Mater Private Hospital Springfield Stage One already open including a government-funded cancer care centre. Stage Two of the hospital will commence construction this year and will join a range of state-of-the-art research facilities within the 52-acre area reserved for Health City. Aveo has also developed a large, dementia-friendly retirement village in Health City which opened
IDEA City is also in the works for Springfield Central. Based on the Silicon Valley concept, IDEA City will be a research-focused precinct designed to house both tech giants and start-ups. A key part of IDEA City is the $230-million Polaris Data Centre and the independent dark fibre network that runs through the CBD. In terms of digital infrastructure, this puts Springfield well ahead of the Brisbane CBD.
When it comes to residential development, a brand-new house and land release in Brookwater has just been brought to market. Dress Circle Stage 1 is selling now and is centred around the Brookwater Golf & Country Club. Over the next few years, this area will see thousands of brand-new apartments join the market as well.
