$1.5 billion vision unveiled for new Ripley Town Centre masterplan

Sekisui House has revealed its $1.5 billion masterplan vision for Ripley Town Centre, an environmentally friendly community hub in Brisbane’s growing western corridor.

With approximately 133,000 new residents estimated by 2036, the designs pursue a “20-minute neighbourhood philosophy”. The low-carbon community will offer easy access to healthcare, education, recreational, commercial, community, sporting facilities and proposed train station all within a 20-minute walk.

Sekisui House Australia CEO Toru Abe said the masterplan vision realises the potential for the region.

“As a Priority Development Area, we know the Ripley region is rapidly expanding, with housing and infrastructure in demand.

“This masterplan vision will cater to the varying needs of the current local community, and ensure it is well positioned for the future,” Mr Abe said.

The plan comprises of ten key, interconnected areas, including the Civic Heart providing a central community and cultural space, The Esplanade which features indoor and outdoor dining overlooking green space, and The Green where young professionals, students and creatives will live, work and learn.

“The masterplan vision sets a new benchmark around the notion of community and connectivity,” Mr Abe said.

“Our vision is to create a low-carbon community where everything you need is at your fingertips, with careful consideration of tree-lined streets, inviting pedestrian walkways, cycle paths and integrated transport options, including the proposed Ripley rail extension.

“We are placing an emphasis on long-term sustainability and life enrichment to ensure Ripley Town Centre is designed to adapt for generations to come and remains the heart of the region.”

The project’s first stage, the Ripley Town Centre, was delivered in May 2018. Stage 2 is now underway, which will feature medium to high rise residential seniors living in a new South Village quarter, as well as an extension of the existing Centre for additional retail.

Work across the 40-hectare property is expected to generate around 20,000 direct jobs.
