About the ECCO Ripley Development Project

From the 202020 Vision website

The Ripley Valley, 9 klm from Ipswich town centre is expected to house up to 10 per cent of southeast Queensland’s population growth during the next 20 years. The new master planned community known as ‘Ecco Ripley’ will become the civic, commercial and recreational heart for 120,000 residents.

Sekisui House is master planning 194 hectares within the Ripley Valley, which will include a future vibrant retail and commercial town, approximately 4,000 dwellings, and over 40 hectares of parks and green space.
