Construction is underway on the $3.2 million Providence Centre, marking the first stage of development of key community facilities for Providence.
Additional community facilities underway include the new District Park with the Splash’n’Play water park.
Providence Director Michael Khan said the Providence Centre and café had been designed with the community in mind and would provide enjoyable spaces for visitors of all ages.
“The Providence Centre will be home to a sales and information centre, café with alfresco dining, community rooms that can be booked free of charge, toilets and a parents’ room,” Mr Khan said.
“We have engaged award winning designers, Ellivo Architects to develop modern, stylish and relaxing spaces that will be the centre piece of Providence.
“The Centre will be a fantastic space for community and sporting groups, small businesses and individuals to hold meetings, training sessions, and small social gatherings. The rooms can also be opened up to form a larger theatre style room to accommodate larger community groups.
“Feedback we’ve received from buyers is that people want a central meeting point for activities such as play groups, and with the café right next door it’s the perfect spot.
“The café will be open to all visitors and provide a casual space where people can meet for coffee and special occasions.
“A terraced amphitheatre and the adventure playground will be located adjacent to the café and provide an ideal location to have a coffee while watching your children play. The grassed areas will give groups space for activities such as yoga or exercise classes,” Mr Khan said.
The new District Park that is also under construction includes the Splash’n’Play water park, adventure playground, barbeques and picnic shelters for family gatherings.
“What sets us apart from other developments is that the District Park and Providence Centre will be free to the community. People will be able to book the rooms at no cost and use the outdoor spaces as they please.
“The new facilities are a short walk from homes and have a bike path right to the doorstep, meaning people can leave their cars behind.
“Providence has been designed with outdoor and active living in mind, and this is the first step in providing an outdoor lifestyle which our residents are seeking,” Mr Khan said.
Over the next 20 years Providence will be constructed across 670 hectares, approximately three times the size of Brisbane’s CBD land mass and will be the largest single development in the Ripley Valley.
Providence is being developed by Amex Corporation, an Australian family-owned residential development company that has been operating in Queensland for 28 years, and has delivered 14 communities across Australia.
