Carseldine Urban Village | For Brisbane Families

A vibrant urban village – Carseldine Urban Village, not unlike Kelvin Grove Urban Village – is set to transform the site of the former Queensland University of Technology campus in Carseldine with a $35 million first stage to include a dramatic tree-lined boulevard entrance.

The State Government has announced that it is creating an ‘exciting transport-oriented community with a world-class urban design outcome’. Delivering 70 jobs during construction, to North Brisbane, the govt. suggests that the community will remain connected to the natural environment with the Kedron Wavell Ballpark and approximately 18 hectares of protected vegetation to be retained and a further 3.5 hectares of open space to be created.

The Carseldine Urban Village is an extension of the very successful Fitzgibbon Chase community and will include new playgrounds and open/green space.


Conveniently located close to Carseldine train station, Carseldine Urban Village will expand on the model established at Fitzgibbon and will include some 900 homes for approximately 3,500 residents plus commercial and retail space.

The renewal of the 45 hectare site, which includes the former Queensland University of Technology campus, will integrate world-class urban design and community improvement with significant transit-oriented renewal, delivering a vibrant, connected and accessible urban village community which will provide access to services and innovative housing options, employment, recreation and public transport.

Redevelopment of the Carseldine site is expected to be completed in four stages over four years, delivering some 900 homes for approximately 3500 residents as well as commercial and retail space, catalysing investment in the local community.
