Toowoomba Regional Council today (November 26) launched its Invest Toowoomba CBD prospectus highlighting recent investments and opportunities for investors in the city’s CBD and the Railway Parklands Priority Development Area (PDA).
Toowoomba Region Mayor Paul Antonio said Council was underlining its faith in the future of the CBD and PDA by releasing a suite of materials detailing the key business sectors and professions in the CBD for Queensland, interstate and international investors to analyse.
“We have a fantastic story and a positive vision to broadcast to investors. Few, if any, Australian regional centres can point to more than $800 million in private and public investment in their city centre over the past decade,” Mayor Antonio, who also is TRC’s Economic Development Committee chair, said.
“We should not lose sight of the extraordinary projects realised by private investors, including one of the more recent openings at our venue the Oaks Hotel, and all levels of government in a relatively short time.
“In the coming weeks, Council will release details of our 10-year review of the City Centre Master Plan (CCMP), which attracted considerable public feedback earlier this year. Council adopted the CCMP in 2010 to provide a vision for the city centre to 2031 and beyond.
