The Carseldine project will redevelop the former Queensland University of Technology (QUT) campus grounds. The project aims to deliver an urban village that provides over four hectares of new, purpose-built sport and recreation facilities. It will also be offering a range of residential, commercial and retail uses. The revitalisation project will also retain 75 per cent of existing bushland.

The new urban village promises to provide opportunities for the community and attract investment as well as deliver jobs and economic growth.

Construction of Stage 1, which will include a boulevard entrance as well as the subdivision of three master lots, will commence upon the completion of Stage S in early 2019.
