An independent school and an earthmoving and logistics company are the latest businesses set to move into the Nicholas Street Precinct.
Ipswich Central redevelopment committee chairperson Councillor Marnie Doyle said Ipswich City Council had signed leases with Indie Education and VE Group AU.
“Indie College has been part of the Nicholas Street Precinct since March, and have now expanded to occupy a second level of 143 Brisbane Street, at the corner of Nicholas and Brisbane streets,” Cr Doyle said.
Indie College will continue to provide accredited courses aimed at young people who have needs which require more flexible arrangements.
“We have seen the precinct grow and expand firsthand and the connectivity to transport and services, combined with the growth and energy within the city centre made it an easy decision to expand our offer,” Indie School state principal QLD Samantha Bolton said.
“It’s proven to be an ideal location for our students and teachers, and we love being part of the Ipswich community.”
The Australian Red Cross will also move from 143 Brisbane St to 2 Bell St, keeping this important community service within the precinct.
