The Federal Government has announced Logan will host two innovative projects that will showcase best practice in urban design, planning and renewal.


Funded under the Liveable Cities initiative, the Federal Government will partner with Logan City Council to deliver the Logan Central Affordable Housing Demonstraction Project, a new apartment complex catering for the area’s growing number of low-income retirees, newly arrived migrants and the local hospital staff.


The second project will see the development of a long term strategic master plan aimed at guiding the future growth and development of the city’s health and education institutions.


“Known as the Meadowbrook Knowledge Precinct and encompassing Griffith University, Logan Hospital, Metropolitan South Institute of TAFE campuses, local bus and rail hubs as well as private developments along Loganlea Road, the project's aim is to create an urban environment where new businesses will want to set up and where people will want to live, work and raise a family,” Federal Minister for Infrastructure Anthony Albanese said.
