Springfield City Group recently had the honour of sponsoring the Property Council of Australia’s Queensland chapter at the Brookwater Golf and Country Club yesterday, in its latest edition of the Western Corridor Event Series.
“A Sporting Chance – Opportunities in Community Infrastructure” was the theme of the event, which highlighted opportunities for the property industry being created from the Western Corridor’s sport and recreation infrastructure boom.
One new exciting development in that space is the new Brisbane Lions AFL stadium project, which lends itself to the vision of driving investment in sports, communities and active lifestyles in the Western Corridor.
Greater Springfield will be the new home of the Brisbane Lions AFL Women’s team, with a new 10,000 seat stadium and state-of-the-art administration and training facilities due to be delivered by 2021.
Brisbane Lions General Manager for Infrastructure, Strategy and Government, Jake Anson featured as a special guest speaker at the event and talked to property industry leaders about the significant positive impact the stadium would have on the business and players, as well as the Greater Springfield and wider community.
He also touched on how the development would form part of the Springfield City Stadiums Precinct, which is envisaged to deliver a range of premier entertainment, health and sports facilities.
Brisbane Lions Women’s CEO Breeanna Brock also appeared as a special guest speaker and wooed the crowd with her heart felt messages about how the project would provide their team with “a sense of belonging” to the Greater Springfield community and how both the facility and an engaged community would give them a “competitive edge over the next 10 years.”
Lendlease State Community Partnership Manager, Dean Patterson also addressed the crowd, before Springfield City Group Deputy Chairman, Bob Sharpless finished with a Vote of Thanks and confirmed how the project was a game changer and first of its kind to be designed around women’s sport in the country.
