- 53 terrace homes to be delivered
- First net zero energy emission terrace homes development in QLD
- Developed by Economic Development Queensland
Construction is underway for the latest Queensland development in Carseldine.
Unlike many Queensland developments of late, this one is not on the Gold Coast, but half an hour north of the Brisbane CBD.
Neither is it by a private developer, Economic Development Queensland is at the helm, a state government agency.
Today, the first slabs were completed for the project, Carseldine Village will set the bar for sustainable housing.
“It will be a 100% solar and battery neighbourhood saving homebuyers thousands of dollars in electricity,”
Bart Mellish, Member for Aspley
“All the Carseldine Village terrace homes will come with solar PV, battery storage systems, heat pump hot water systems, WiFi air conditioning and will be electric vehicle charger ready.”
Mr Mellish said the arrangement could save owners up to $1600 per year off power bills.
The project is marketed as “the first residential development in Queensland to commit to delivering net-zero energy emission terrace homes with energy-saving features,” and “was recently awarded a 5-Star Green Star Communities certification from the Green Building Council of Australia”
Tipped to create 60 construction jobs throughout the build, Carseldine was not the first government developed property one couple invested in, Aldrige and Miranda Joseph said:
“Our daughter bought a home in Fitzgibbon Chase, a previous Economic Development Queensland project, so Carseldine Village sparked our interest.”
