Flagstonians to get "inner-city" experience with new lots approved
Article written by Stacey Whitlock, Local News, Jimboomba Times
FLAGSTONE is set to get a third shopping centre, a community centre and 1700 new lots to help support an expected 50,000 new residents in the coming decades.
The development - recently approved by the state government - will include seven different freehold land products under 300 square metres.
A Peet Limited spokesperson said the high density lot types would be sprinkled through Stages 2 to 5 and would ensure that Flagstone could house thousands of residents who are expected to move there in the next 25 years.
Peet Limited managing director Brendan Gore said most of the new lot types would be located near shopping centres and transport hubs, giving people the experience of inner-city living.
Jordan MP Charis Mullen said the approval included Flagstone's third neighbourhood shopping centre site and a 5000 square metre site for its first community centre.
A Catholic private school is due to open in 2023.
"The DA also includes a main road extension that will create access into the development from the west opening up economic opportunities and trade links via New Beith Road," Ms Mullen said.
It came as Villa World said $1 million in real estate across just three of Logan's major developments was sold every week.
The developer has notched up $57 million in sales over the past year from its Logan developments, which include Covella in Greenbank, Killara in Logan Reserve and Chambers Ridge in Park Ridge.
The annual total represents sales of about $1.1 million per week and the developments are expected to deliver more than 2500 residential lots to the market when fully completed.
Villa World Queensland development director Peter Johnson said the Logan market was one of the most resilient residential growth corridors in the country.
"Demand in Logan has not only been driven by high levels of affordability, but also an increase in community amenities and local job opportunities as more and more people move into the area. This is adding to the momentum," he said.
Residents have raised concerns that infrastructure is not equipped for more people moving to the area.
Logan Country Safe City chairman David Kenny told the Jimboomba Times earlier this month that there was no co-ordinated plan for Logan, including the Mount Lindesay Highway.
He said the government had implemented a piecemeal approach to infrastructure in the region.
Flagstone resident Bob Wiley said priorities should include a secondary school for New Beith and Greenbank and the Salisbury Beaudesert rail line.
He said more work on infrastructure should be completed before people move to the area.
