Strategically located between the Gold Coast and Brisbane, Coomera and Pimpama provides a vital link between two of Australia’s largest cities. Boasting strengthening employment, tourism, and education sectors as well as ongoing large-scale infrastructure investment, Gold Coast North has recorded one of Queensland’s strongest increases in population growth in recent years.
From a local perspective, the ensuing development of the highly anticipated Coomera Town Centre will provide a further catalyst for ongoing investment and set the benchmark for a new wave of commercial, retail and residential development across the northern suburbs of the Gold Coast.
The $1.5 billion Coomera Town Centre will drive the market within the Northern Corridor, cementing the area as a major growth region within the Gold Coast LGA incorporating large scale retail, commercial and employment centres. The Westfield Shopping Centre is one of the largest in Queensland and provides for everyone’s needs.
The Coomera Town Centre Master Plan is intended to create a transit-oriented activity centre which focuses on an active street life with a network of public streets and open space areas with the Major Westfield Shopping Centre.
The town centre itself is be the main retail commercial and employment centre for the Pimpama-Coomers area with a large amount of residential land being developed around these core areas. The Coomera Town Centre will service a catchment of approximately 130,000 people by 2026, with population within the area forecast to reach 50,000. Development of the area is creating approximately 1,200 construction jobs.
Employment is further boosted by Yatala Enterprise Area, the 127 hectare industrial hub is projected to inject $1 billion in the economy over the next 10 years (More Gold Coast 2016). The Marine Industrial Park is the largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere and is a major employer.
