Armstrong Creek, a suburb located 15 minutes from Geelong and Torquay, is getting ready for a big year in 2020.
Here are a few reasons why:
1. Armstrong Creek Town Centre Development
This $1 billion, 40 hectare development has its first stage opening in July 2020. This stage includes a Coles Supermarket and 25 specialty retail stores that will service around 58,000 people and provide at least 1,100 ongoing jobs.
This is the first part of a 15 year development project to help service the region’s expanding population.
2. Brand new schools opening with more on the way
Demand for education in the Armstrong Creek area will be serviced by new schools & expansions of existing schools, including:
- Mirripoa Primary School, which opened term 1 in 2020
- Oberon High School, opening 2021
- St Catherine of Siena Catholic Primary School, expansion planning currently underway
3. Developments starting construction
The increasing population of Armstrong Creek means more houses need to be built to help accommodate the area’s growth. A number of new estates and developments designed to service all lifestyles are currently, or will begin construction this year. This means more parks, community facilities, gathering places and landscaped streetscapes are on their way.
4. Planning of Harriott’s central park
We’re a little biased, but Harriott’s central park promises to be a true landscape spectacle. Catering to the local community, it will provide a unique and natural gathering space for residents to meet, play and enjoy the fresh air. Further planning of this park is happening this year, and we’ll be asking for community feedback.
