A development application has been lodged for a mixed use development, located on the corner of Park Road and Villa Street, Yeronga.
The site is in proximity to Yeronga train station, State Primary School, State High School and Yeronga Memorial Park.
Designed by Archipelago, the proposal has been named ‘Parkside Yeronga’ that seeks the ultimate redevelopment of the the former TAFE site, under the Yeronga Priority Development Area (Yeronga PDA).

The planners at Ethos Urban state, “The proposal guides future development within the YPDA by prescribing various controls and subdividing the site to make it ‘construction ready’ for future developers. This involves establishing, four (4) precincts to spatially organise development and set land use expectations for a range of stakeholders, including MEDQ (the asset owner) and the community (the end users). This process ensures only primary land uses, and some secondary land uses (generally at a lower scale) are located consistently with the intent of the Development Scheme”.
The redevelopment will provide relevant residential, commercial, community and visitor car parks spaces. The car parking access from each building will be from Parks Road via a new local road network.
