IPSWICH City Properties has a new director with Cr Andrew Antoniolli set to join what will now be a five-man board this week.

Ipswich City Properties will now have five directors - Cr Antoniolli, Ipswich mayor Paul Pisasale, Cr Paul Tully, Ipswich City Council CEO Jim Lindsay and the council's city solicitor Daniel Best.

The next phase of the staged redevelopment of Ipswich City Square shopping complex involves a $150 million dollar retail development for which four expressions of interest have already been received.

"Andrew is very well connected in the CBD. He has an office in the CBD and talks to the retailers in the CBD all the time," Cr Pisasale said. "To have that experience and knowledge on Ipswich City Properties is invaluable to making good decisions."

Cr Antoniolli said he was looking forward to helping steer the development of the city heart in the right direction.

"Ipswich City Properties set the direction of the CBD and I believe that someone like me who is embedded in the CBD can get advice through to the board about what is needed," he said.

"It is not just the people in Ipswich City Square who are providing feedback and ideas.

"It is people from the top of town right down to the downtown area where Coles is.

"People know how reliant they are on that CBD spine, where Ipswich City Square is in the mall.

"If you don't get that middle section right you don't have the links with those other two areas.

"I believe in the path we set back in 2007 through developing the master plan for the CBD, where the redevelopment of the square and the mall was highlighted as a catalyst project.

Cr Antoniolli said the CBD had "a bright future".
