Did you know that a former TAFE site in Yeronga could be transformed into ‘Parkside Yeronga,’ a new mixed-use community development that will be carried over in four stages if approved?

Four private companies form part of the development, located on the corner of Park Road and Villa Street, which will provide residential, commercial and, recreational precincts to form the master-planned community under the Yeronga Priority Development Area

The 3.3-hectare site will be divided among Brisbane Housing Company, JGL Properties, Children Health Queensland, and Retire Australia. Each consortium will then submit separate dedicated plans for Parkside Yeronga.

The residential development consists of at least five separate blocks of multiple dwellings with a retirement and residential care facility. The commercial sites will have a childcare centre connected to a public plaza filled with shaded trees and vegetation, alongside the rest of the community facilities that may include a place of worship, offices, and healthcare establishments.

The plans also include a new home for the Yeronga Community Centre. Provisions for several pedestrian paths have also been considered in the proposal.

“The proposal guides future development within the YPDA by prescribing various controls and subdividing the site to make it ‘construction ready’ for future developers,” as per the detailed plan submitted to the State Government in September 2021. (Application #DEV2021/1221)

“This involves establishing, four (4) precincts to spatially organise development and set land use expectations for a range of stakeholders, including MEDQ (the asset owner) and the community (the end users). This process ensures only primary land uses, and some secondary land uses (generally at a lower scale) are located consistently with the intent of the Development Scheme.”
