Brookwater welcomes major retailers
August 24, 2011
Greater Springfield - one of the fastest-growing regions in Australia - has welcomed the announcement of a new retail village to be developed at the premier residential area, Brookwater.
Woolworths recently announced the $30 million Brookwater Retail Village - a new one-stop-shop for Brookwater residents, housing a Mater Health Centre and eight specialty stores.
Mater Health Service and MyLife Medical Group will establish the area's first integrated primary care service in one, purpose-built facility. The Mater Health Centre will include services such as a GP clinic, medical imaging, pharmacy, pathology, allied health and visiting specialists.
Brookwater deputy managing director Raynuha Sinnathamby said she was excited about the major developments happening in the area over the next few years, with the latest announcement from Woolworths and Mater Health Services firmly positioning Brookwater as a one of south-east Queensland's most highly-sought after areas.
"We are thrilled to be able to work with Mater Health Services and Woolworths to bring such a diverse range of health services and retail options to the local community," Ms Sinnathamby said.
"The Brookwater Retail Village will ensure residents have access to some of the best facilities available in south-east Queensland," she said.
The new development follows Woolworths' initial presence in Mirvac's Orion Springfield centre, with the retail giant also opening one of their first Masters Home Improvement centres in Springfield later this year.
Ms Sinnathamby said Brookwater residents are also set to benefit from a range of key community developments in the area, including the construction of the $475 million Springfield rail line, the $35 million St Peter's Lutheran College at Springfield and the expansion of the University of Southern Queensland campus.
"Brookwater residents have already seen such significant growth in the area," Ms Sinnathamby said.
"The next 10 years set to be even bigger, with the arrival of two new train stations, a brand new secondary school and further expansion to the University of Southern Queensland," she said.
"Not only are these key developments testament to the overall success of Greater Springfield, they will continue to secure Brookwater's reputation as one of Brisbane's most attractive investment areas for years to come," Ms Sinnathamby said.
Brookwater Retail Village will be at the corner of Augusta Parkway and Tournament Drive, and is expected to open mid-year 2012.
