On 19 September Bells Creek Arterial was officially opened by Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, providing the Sunshine Coast hinterland with important access to the Coast and Stockland Aura, including the growing Aura Business Park.
Australia’s largest masterplanned community, Stockland Aura boasts the $215 million business hub, featuring more than 170 industrial lots already housing 79 businesses.
Stockland Aura Project Director, Josh Sondergeld is excited at the long-term vision to offer modern and flexible business spaces for a range of industries.
“Having direct access to Aura through the new Bells Creek Arterial means businesses will have access to an untapped, growing and prosperous customer base,” said Mr Sondergeld.
“Currently the business park accommodates light industry and manufacturing, storage and warehousing, research and development, and indoor sports and recreation, with bulky goods, showrooms and commercial office space being added in future.
“Aura is consistently chosen as a great option to live, work and play and the Aura Business Park has attracted entrepreneurs and companies who want to benefit from the key infrastructure already in place and being in the heart of the region’s prime investment zone.”
“It’s estimated that 20,000 jobs will be generated in Aura once complete, allowing people to be able to work close to home, reduce commuting times and cementing the city’s status as a self-sustainable, vibrant economic hub,” said Mr Sondergeld.”
“Whether people are choosing to live here or just visit, Aura has an award-winning outlook on what a community should be. More than 109km of walking paths and cycling veloways are already delivered with 200km planned on completion, providing easy access to parks, schools and community events – and now also the ability to grab a coffee and some lunch and visit the diverse range of businesses now calling Aura home.”
