City of Logan Emerges as Global Investment Hotspot

Article from The Urban Developer

The City of Logan is fast emerging as a global investment hotspot in south-east Queensland, buoyed by a strong economic track record, historic levels of infrastructure investment in the pipeline and business confidence on the rise. 

Logan has continued to attract a number of multinational businesses and fast-growing start-ups looking to capitalise on the city’s growth potential and enviable location between Queensland’s capital, Brisbane and tourist destination the Gold Coast.

The launch of autonomous drone delivery services in Logan by Wing — a subsidiary of global technology company Alphabet — is just one of the businesses that have funnelled a total of $100 million of private investment into the city over the past 12 months.

Logan is just one of four locations in the world that now has access to Wing’s air delivery service, which flies a range of convenience items by air in just minutes.

Under the helm of chief executive James Ryan Burgess, Wing will focus their Queensland expansion plans in Logan first, with select households in the suburbs of Crestmead and Marsden already having access to the service.

Burgess said what made cities like Logan most attractive for investment was not only the demographic factors but the opportunities driven by growth.

“Logan is one of the fastest growing areas of Queensland, so that’s a great fit for us because drone delivery makes it much easier for people to get the things they need in rapidly expanding metropolises,” Burgess said.

“Logan is also a very innovative community, and the growth and excitement around the city makes it a great place for us to start our Queensland operations.”

Logan is located in the heart of south-east Queensland where around 70 per cent of the state live, and is predicted to be the second fastest growing city in this region.

In just over 20 years, Logan’s population is predicted to grow more than 50 per cent to around 548,000 residents.

This has led to an unprecedented level of infrastructure investment, with more than $18 billion of publicly funded projects under way to support the growing residential population.
