Underpinned by the Coal Seem Gas – Liquified Natural Gas Industry

The Gladstone region is one of Queensland’s economic ‘power houses’ and has been identified as the centre for Queensland’s burgeoning CSG-LNG industry. The vast scale of emerging LNG projects in Gladstone is already generating economic impacts across Queensland.

In Gladstone itself, the outcomes are considerable – from front-end engineering plans to actual construction of LNG production trains, with economic benefits flowing to the region as a whole. The CSG-LNG projects are also generating major requirements for residential accommodation in the city.

The recent announcement by Devine Ltd regarding the unveiling of plans for a new $1.4 billion masterplanned community in the rapidly growing central Queensland city of Gladstone has investors sitting up and taking note!

Current population figures in Gladstone as at June 2010 = 60,316
Expected population growth by the year 2016 = 70,959 to 77,626 residents
Expected population growth by the year 2031 = 93,565 – 123,420 residents

 

 

 

 

Current shortfall of suitable dwellings is in excess of current population growth, and Devine’s new project will alleviate some of this pain. The forecast of this construction will be over the next 12 years providing ongoing employment opportunity for the region.

Employment Opportunities in the area has already outstripped supply with tens of thousands of jobs emanating out of the $66 Billion Infrastructure spend. This is an ongoing trend into the foreseeable future as more projects come online.

New Infrastructure includes : Public and Private Hospital, Education Campus (Tafe and Uni), schools, mixed use commercial and industrial sites, expansion of retail shops, shopping mall, schools, newly established local parks and open-air stages for local events and one of Australia’s busiest ports!

Gladstone offers a variety of Lifestyle Choices – coastal enclaves, rural townships, gorgeous beaches, fishing, tourism, sports, choice of either country of city life making Gladstone and energetic and fast growing sought after regional city.

The Queensland government estimate that the LNG industry will generate around 18,000 new jobs and add around $850 million per year to the economy for at least the next 10 years. The promise of Thousands of construction jobs is just the start of a wave of economic impacts and associated supply / demand imbalances.

The first and major impact is the dire shortage of Housing!

Tourism and Farming continue to underpin economic growth in Gladstone but the LNG projects will take Gladstone into the next phase.

New infrastructure highlights include improved Road and Rail plus Boat and Coach services, to cater for the increased population and movement of supplies for both construction and growth purposes. The Gladstone Airports makes the region easily accessible by air to and from the region.

Recent and anticipated population growth is testament to the continuing opportunities that the Gladstone Region presents as a location of choice in wich to work, live and Invest.

  • Upward pressure on Rental Yields & property value

    RP Data says these figures indicate the unarguable virtues of a buy & hold investment strategy that is designed for long term success, “with property values, rents & subsequently rental yields having historically proven to increase over time.” Predict that the ongoing housing shortage & worsening affordability issues due to inflationary pressures will see rents continue to rise into the future, while the next twelve months will see fairly flat growth for property prices. However the report adds, “With an insufficient supply of homes, upward pressure will remain on housing prices over the long term.”
