The latest development within Australia’s largest master-planned city offers a flexible range of uses for businesses keen to get a foothold in Brisbane’s western growth corridor.
The 42-hectare Vicinity at Augustine Heights is a mixed use business park including a major automotive showroom zone and a number of key areas for small to medium businesses.
Springfield Project Partners Director Sean Ranchigoda said Vicinity is a further boost to the world class city of Greater Springfield, which is already one of the fastest growing regions in Australia.
“Vicinity is made up of seven key zones including small to medium commercial office, high tech office warehouse, service trade, retail warehouses, showrooms, highway service Centre, and fast food convenience,” Mr. Ranchigoda said.
“The precinct has been planned to complement Greater Springfield’s established medium and large commercial business zones; Brookwater Village and the new Mater Health Centre which are only a short walk away.
“Vicinity is already home to Dalkia Energy Services, the Queensland Ambulance Service and a custom-built 5000m2 snack food and confectionary business.
Vicinity also contains its first dealership, Hyundai Springfield, with an automall in its future plans.
“Vicinity is also a ten minute walk from Springfield Central Rail Station, meaning businesses and their customers will have access to efficient and reliable public transport,” he said.
“Greater Springfield has a population of more than 23,000 that’s forecast to more than quadruple within a couple of decades, making Vicinity a prime site for retailers, trades and services.”
