Plans for a huge new multi-precinct development in Kallangur are being assessed by Moreton Bay Regional Council.
The development application (DA) is for Mill-Wood Park, off Briggs Ct and Dohles Rocks Rd, at the top of the Millovate university site.
Mill-Wood Park Pty Ltd is proposing four precincts, on around eight hectares, within a Priority Development Area (PDA), which takes in the former paper mill land.
The first precinct would be a mix of industry and business “with a focus on smaller compact users”, according to the development application.
Precinct Two would have three-to-four storey residential apartments, office space, cafes and restaurants and a community sports facility.
A private hospital would form part of Precinct 3, with additional healthcare services there would be shops and a childcare centre.
Precinct 4 would be open space to bushland areas, a pedestrian-cycleway, seating, shade sails and exercise equipment.
The new Pine Rivers Satellite Hospital, which is under construction and due to open this year, will be opposite the proposed Mill-Wood Park.
Plans for the entire site show Mill-Wood Park would be in the Mill Transit area, focussed around Kallangur train station.
The entire 460-hectare Millovate site is currently home to the first stage of the University of the Sunshine Coast campus and a water park.
It will have a venue to house the 2032 Brisbane Olympic boxing tournament.
When finished, the 65-hectares of developed land is expected to deliver 8600 jobs and bring in an average of $813 million to the region each year.
Petrie Mill closed in 2013 – after 56 years on the site which was bought by Moreton Bay Regional Council in 2015 and demolition work started the following year.
