Development

In 2014, Cedar Woods Properties purchased the largest available parcel of land remaining within Upper Kedron for $68 Million.

Cedar Woods lodged a Development Application with Brisbane City Council over the Suburb's remaining undeveloped land within the South East Queensland Urban Footprint, noting the Council's zones as being inconsistent with the South East Queensland Regional Plan. The development proposes to use an existing road reserve which runs through the property to connect with Mount Nebo Road, and ultimately Waterworks Road.

The proposed 227 hectare development includes 91 hectares of open space and up to 1,350 individual dwellings to be developed over a period of ten years. The works to develop the site are estimated to cost $900 million, and will generate up to 1,000 jobs at its peak.

The proposed development responds to the site's topography by offering a range of living options, ranging from bush blocks, to lots designed for terrace-style dwellings.
