Brisbane’s Central Business District is set to grow with the City’s strong economic expansion and steady population growth translating into thousands of new jobs over the next decade. Around 670,000 new jobs are projected for South East Queensland by 2031, with around 290,000 of these jobs concentrated in Brisbane City. The City’s Central Business District is forecast to expand from 156,600 to 220,200 workers between 2011 and 2031, with similar growth rates expected in surrounding suburbs including Fortitude Valley, South Brisbane, Spring Hill and Woolloongabba. Many of these new jobs will be in knowledge-intensive business services, and health, community and education services. Connect Apartments is just around the corner from the suburb’s main shopping hub Lutwyche City and minutes from the Lutwyche Busway Station. Lutwyche City offers residents access to specialty retailers and service providers. It’s just 150m walk to the bus exchange, 7min walk to the nearest train station and low body corporate fees due to excluding a gym as the nearest is just around the corner!
Australia Trade Coast is positioned six kilometres from the CBD and is the largest employment zone in Queensland after the Brisbane CBD, and is just a 10-minute drive north of Lutwyche. Benefitting from direct links to Brisbane Airport and the Port of Brisbane, the trade region is poised for significant expansion, with $5 billion committed to future infrastructure projects. The region is forecast to employ more than 110,000 people by 2026, and represent an estimated $9.4 billion in value to the Queensland economy.
Connect Apartments is positioned in the heart of Brisbane’s inner-north, just steps from lively cafes, restaurants and some of the City’s most popular lifestyle destinations and a short drive to both the CBD and Australia Trade Coast, offering unprecedented connectivity and doorstep access to everyday amenities.
Just 7 minutes from Brisbane’s Central Business District, residents at Connect Apartments are perfectly placed to benefit from Brisbane’s multibillion-dollar investments in transport infrastructure. With the Airport Link tunnel and Inner City Bypass a short drive away, residents can enjoy seamless citywide travel.
At Lutwyche you can take full advantage of Brisbane’s $15 billion TransApex road system. The network of tunnels and motorways has transformed citywide travel, providing motorists express connections to the Brisbane CBD, Brisbane Domestic and International Airport, and the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast.
At Connect Apartments you are just moments from well-regarded primary and secondary schools, including Wooloowin State School, Windsor State School, Kedron State High School, and Clayfield College. Also in close proximity are popular music academies, the Brisbane Institute of Art, and a great range of childcare centres.
A short journey along the Busway connects you to Queensland University of Technology’s Kelvin Grove campus and the thriving Kelvin Grove Urban Village precinct. Queensland University of Technology is one of Australia’s top 10 universities, with the Kelvin Grove campus hosting facilities for creative industries, education and health. The State’s largest University, the University of Queensland, is easily accessible by bus or CityCat, with express services available from the CBD.
With Lutwyche Busway Station and Train Station plus the Airport Link tunnel less than two minutes away, Connect Apartments’ strategic location places residents close to Brisbane’s top centres of employment.
