Poplars development launchesBack
A new development, Poplars, has been launched in the NSW suburb of Jerrabomberra, which will be home to defence, space and tech companies as well as a retail and services precinct.
Poplars will also include a STEM-based high school, innovation hub and a grassland reserve.
“The region already has a highly skilled workforce and a growing reputation as a magnet for innovation and world leading communications and defence companies,” said Poplars Development director, David Maxwell.
“With the first retail stage of Poplars already underway, this exciting new development will foster industry connection with the national capital, offering the latest facilities in an attractive and rapidly growing regional centre.”
Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council (QPRC) Mayor Tim Overall said the development would provide “much-needed” retail and employment land as a springboard for continued expansion.
“The South Jerrabomberra area will see some significant progress over the coming years, including the establishment of the proposed South Tralee residential area and planning for the development of a Regional Sports Precinct, educational facility and an innovation hub,” he said.
The grassland reserve will comprise over 100ha of conservation area, with Poplars working with the Wadiyali Restoration Trust to ensure the ecological area is conserved.
