The Buzz in Yarrabilba is a state-of-the-art $7.4 million community hub currently under construction, that will provide services to support community wellbeing and the development of new skills.
Creating employment opportunities and helping residents in need, the project is a collaborative effort between Lendlease, Logan City Council, Queensland State Government and Brisbane Catholic Education.
The naming off the hub was put to the local community through a Council survey, who chose the name, the Buzz.
The hub will be an inclusive, engaging, and responsive place that enables a thriving community to connect, learn, earn and innovate.
The facility will create 22 construction jobs, support supply chains and play an important role in our region’s economic recovery.
Due to the location of the hub, situated between two secondary schools, a dedicated youth space will be an important part of the centre.
In late 2021, the first sod was turned on the Buzz, marking a massive milestone for our rapidly growing community.
The Buzz will be a permanent home to ‘The Exchange,’ offering free services for local job seekers and employers to support our residents.
You may have already witnessed the first signs of construction of the $7.4 million community hub on Basalt Drive, which is due for completion in late-2022. Lendlease Head of Queensland Communities Ian Murray said the sod-turning marks a key milestone for our rapidly growing community.
“The new community hub will be a permanent home to ‘The Exchange,’ offering free services for local job seekers and employers to support our community,” he said.
Logan City Lifestyle Chair Councillor Laurie Koranski said the hub would be an inclusive, engaging, and responsive place that enables a thriving community to connect, learn, earn and innovate.
“This new community hub is one part of a community facilities network for Yarrabilba,” Cr Koranski said.
“It will also provide important community services that offer guidance and support for people in need.”
