Frasers Property Australia have revealed The Quarry, a $500 million master planned urban renewal project in Keperra, Brisbane’s north-west. The 48.7-hectare site, formerly the Keperra Quarry, is being transformed into a residential area with a mix of home and land sites, terrace homes designed by Rothelowman, placemaking initiatives, and shared resort-style amenities.
Situated 9.5 kilometres north-west of Brisbane CBD, Keperra has a high demand for new housing due to its access to schools, healthcare, and transportation. The Quarry addresses this demand and offers homes built on elevated platforms up to 170 meters above sea level, providing views of D’Aguilar Range, Glasshouse Mountains, and Moreton Bay.
The development includes a $5 million community recreation centre named ClubQ. Designed by Rothelowman, ClubQ features a range of facilities such as an entertainer’s kitchen, dining space, event areas, library, and work zones. It also comprises a 25-meter lap pool, resort-style pools with a waterfall, a kids’ splash and play area, and a wellness centre with a gymnasium and meditation room.
Megan Schulte, the Project Leader at Rothelowman, has shared, “Frasers and our team of consultants have committed more than two years to the design and civil works of this project, making it a substantial undertaking. Seeing this significant milestone reached has been truly fulfilling, and the Rothelowman team was delighted to participate in the celebratory event earlier this month.”
Upon its completion, The Quarry will convert a decommissioned granite quarry into a vibrant residential community, seamlessly blending with the natural landscape of Keperra and its surrounding area.
Cameron Leggatt, Executive General Manager Development at Frasers Property Australia, emphasized the significance of the project and its transformational impact. He noted that The Quarry’s architectural and landscape designs draw from successful urban renewal projects in Brisbane.
The development allocates more than 40 percent of its space to existing bushland and newly curated green areas, enhancing the integration of nature within the community. The Community Open Day witnessed a strong turnout, with over 1,000 visitors exploring The Quarry’s offerings.
The Keperra Quarry, which has been operational for over 60 years, will gradually reduce its activities as the residential stages of The Quarry progress. The development has received considerable attention since its unveiling, with 450 inquiries and 150 on-site visits for the initial release of 29 home sites.
The Quarry offers a range of housing options. For more information, visit www.frasersproperty.com.au/qld/the-quarry and discover the evolving face of community living in Keperra.
