Park Ridge is an exciting new area 35 minutes south of Brisbane in the Logan City Region.

The Park Ridge Master Plan Area was adopted by Logan City Council in 2011 and sets out a clear plan for an integrated, well planned urban community and employment area with extensive environment, parks and waterway networks. This structure will form the basis for new communities which are bringing quality dwellings along with new infrastructure and amenity.

The government has implemented a huge infrastructure plan for the Logan LGA which will be needed to support the strong population growth that is forecast. The Park Ridge Catchment is forecast to grow by around 25,000 residents over the next 20 years, and see jobs growth of around 8,000 – 13,000.

Median house prices across the Logan LGA and Park Ridge Catchment are very affordable when assessed against comparable areas.

The Logan City Council is the most affordable of the council areas surrounding it. Gold Coast, Redland, Moreton Bay and Sunshine Coast are all currently recording higher median house prices than Logan.

Looking further afield, Urbis have identified 44 suburbs which are located between 27 and 30 kilometres from the Sydney CBD (similar location of Park Ridge to Brisbane CBD). These suburbs have median house prices ranging from $417,500 up to $1.65 million. The Park Ridge Master Plan will provide capacity for growth going forward as population and employment opportunities expand.

INFRASTRUCTURE

New communities are supported with social infrastructure services and programs to match the demand for new land and service by high standard public transport systems along with extensive networks of walking and cycling paths.

One of the largest projects in the planning for Logan LGA is the $200 million Logan Central Master Plan which will be a purpose built precinct comprising commercial buildings, schools, retail, health and social services, along with retirement, aged care and residential buildings of five to eight storeys around a central town square. 

The recently completed expansion and refurbishments to the Logan Hospital have taken it from a 48-bed community hospital in 1990 to a 316-bed hospital catering for the growing resident population and making it a significant employer in the area.

In addition to this, infrastructure contributions associated with residential uses in the Park Ridge Master Plan could attract around $280 million which will be used to further enhance amenity and infrastructure in the area.

There are a substantial number of schools surrounding Park Ridge all within 2 to 10 minutes drive and include Park Ridge Primary and Park Ridge State High School.

EMPLOYMENT

Almost 23,000 new jobs are projected for the Logan LGA. The largest employment sectors at 2031 will be Retail (24.1 per cent), Health & Community (14.1 per cent) and Education (10.9 per cent). 

The new business park in Park Ridge will attract more employers over the coming years making this area even more attractive to home buyers.

The recent expansion and refurbishment to the Logan Hospital along with new community’s and the retail component that they will add to the area is conducive to the employment sectors projected to show the largest employment base through to 2031.
