Beenleigh is set for an almost $40m economic and jobs boom with the proposed development of a mixed-use precinct at 96-98 York Street. The first new commercial office building to be constructed in Beenleigh in the last decade, the project is expected to bring 140 new full-time jobs and 100 construction jobs to the area.
The York features a facelift to John Lane, between John and George Streets, plus the development of a new seven-storey commercial office building, with 4,750 sqm of commercial space, comprising 156 sqm of retail, 452 sqm of SOHO and 4,004 sqm of office, as well as two levels of underground car parking with 10 short term car parks for public use.
The York will combine premium work space with study or home office space (SOHO) opportunities and pedestrian access to John Lane that may include new pavements, lighting, public art and WiFi. We will be asking the community about their thoughts and ideas for this exciting transformation.
Current stage of development
The York is currently seeking Queensland Government approval to extend a small part of its basement carpark underneath John Lane and ‘winter gardens’ over York Street and John Lane, which will act as a natural awning – a nod to Beenleigh’s heritage buildings.
Should this approval be successful, the project will seek Logan City Council approval with the view to start construction in late 2019. The project team is committed to keeping the community informed throughout the planning, development and construction process.
The Development Partners
investLogan is undertaking this project in partnership with Alder Developments.
Alder Developments, alongside sister company Alder Constructions, are an agile development and construction business that has recently completed the $5.5 million redevelopment at the Beenleigh Aquatic Centre in Alamein Street.
