Construction works on Carseldine Village, a 100% solar-powered residential and aged care development in north Brisbane, have begun.
Deputy Premier and Minister for State Development Steven Miles visited the construction site with the home buyers in the last week of May 2021, setting off some excitement for the project’s eventual completion.
“It’s exciting to see the first slabs completed as we build more innovative and affordable homes for Queenslanders,” the minister said. “This will support around 60 construction jobs for the first 53 terrace homes in Stage 1, with more stages and more jobs to come.”
Future Carseldine Village homeowners Aldridge and Miranda Joseph said that they are delighted to see their house taking shape.
“It’s one thing to see the house and land on paper, but another to be able to see it being built,” Aldridge said. “Our daughter bought a home in Fitzgibbon Chase, a previous Economic Development Queensland project, so Carseldine Village sparked our interest.”
Carseldine Village is one of Queensland’s pioneering zero energy emission residential developments, which means that the homeowners will be able to save a lot on their power bills. It’s been estimated that residents could shave off $1,600 a year on their electricity.
