Carseldine Urban Village is set to transform the site of the former Queensland University of Technology campus in Carseldine with a $35 million first stage to include a dramatic tree-lined boulevard entrance.
The State Government has announced that it is creating an ‘exciting transport-oriented community with a world-class urban design outcome’.
Sandgate MP and Transport Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said the project would eventually become home to 3500 residents close to Carseldine train station.
“The site, which is convenient to Carseldine train station, will expand on the model we established at Fitzgibbon and include some 900 homes for approximately 3,500 residents plus commercial and retail space,” Mr Hinchliffe said.
Redevelopment is expected to be completed in four stages over four years.
The first stage of the site transformation will include a new boulevard entrance off Beams Road with landscaping architecture for the urban village that will complement the existing bushland. The Kedron Wavell Ballpark and approximately 18 hectares of protected vegetation to be retained and a further 3.5 hectares of open space to be created.
The renewal of the 45 hectare site, which includes the former Queensland University of Technology campus, will integrate world-class urban design and community improvement with significant transit-oriented renewal, delivering a vibrant, connected and accessible urban village community which will provide access to services and innovative housing options, employment, recreation and public transport.
