It's a cool gif, but I'd like to see the sprawl limited and density increase. Toowoomba is in a good position to build a nice compact city with a central CBD accessible from all sides. Most of the coastal cities can't do this because their CBDs were built near river mouths or harbours.

Toowoomba is actually hitting some natural borders now anyway, with the escarpment limiting development on the north, east and south and black soil flats on the west which is not great for building.

Watching from Brisbane I'm happy to see Toowoomba progressing so well.

I wonder whether it's the perfect place for a great network of properly separated bike lanes to make a great compact city fully accessible by bike.

I think it would make a huge impression on prospective residents to see people getting around in such a fun and safe way. Help cement Toowoomba in peoples minds as a go ahead place.

That would be great. Everyone within the current city limits lives within 5km of the CBD, an ideal cycling distance. The climate is cooler and E bikes would conquer some of the hills that would be a barrier to new cyclists. The roads are also wide enough to accomodate this, if only Councillors were willing to sacrifice on street parking to make it happen. This is unlikely as a lack of parking is currently a hot button issue for Toowoombites.

^none of the major distributors really have any on-street parking that would be affected by a bicycle network. The prospect is just so foreign to anyone here that I hardly see it ever happening.... Unless I ever end up running the joint

Spotted! Earthmoving equipment at the South Central development on Ruthven Street. It looks like this is actually going ahead.

This 4 level apartment on the range is almost finished, just the scaffolding to come down. Apparently, there are a bunch of these smaller apartments going up in town and around the CBD, which is great to hear!

I love the perforated screens they've just installed on this one! Looks like they'll be lit up of a night also. Nice touch

German grocery chain Kaufland to open in Toowoomba

German supermarket giant Kaufland has detailed plans for one its first Australian stores in southeast Queensland.

An artist's impression of what the Toowoomba Kaufland store will look like.

GERMAN supermarket chain Kaufland is set to open one of its first Australian stores in Toowoomba.

The company signalled its intentions for a giant Toowoomba facility last week, submitting a development application to Toowoomba Regional Council.

The DA, submitted by the company's Australian arm, said the store would be located at 353-359 Anzac Avenue, on the corner of Anzac Avenue and Carrel Drive at Harristown next to Bunnings Warehouse.

"A Kaufland store represents a large format retail offering and full range supermarket - noticeably bigger than most Australian supermarkets," the DA read.

"Kaufland stores will offer both national and international brands, including new brands that Kaufland will bring into Australia, an extensive range of local fresh food and groceries, and a range of non-food goods, potentially including items such as crockery and cutlery, cookware, small electrical appliances, napery and linen, some apparel, stationery, toys, as well as seasonal products and weekly promotional items."

Kaufland is a subsidiary of the Schwarz Group, the world's fourth largest retailer. It labels its stores as Hypermarkets.

The Toowoomba hypermarket would be in competition with supermarkets like Woolworths, Coles and Aldi, as well as stores such as Kmart and Big W. The chain began in West Germany in the 1980s and its expansion into Australia is the first time it has operated in an English-speaking country.

The Toowoomba store would have a floor space of 6024sq m and an adjacent bottle shop, labelled in the DA as a hotel, would have a floor space of 350sq m. The main building would also include several specialist retail stores.

"The proposed development will be single storey and will have a maximum building height of 11 metres above natural ground level at the entrance parapet," the DA read.

Streaming binge worthy dramas just became easier with the new Foxtel Experience. Stream over 100 complete drama series.

"The building will be constructed of contemporary and high-quality building materials which will include precast concrete panel walls, aluminium panels and cladding, timber feature cladding, sheet metal roofing and aluminium framed doors and windows.

Coles introduces jumbo-size food

Supermarket giant Coles is introducing jumbo-sized food staples from Wednesday, which could save Australian families up ...

"A total of 420 on-site vehicle parking spaces will be provided in two linked yet discrete parking areas on the eastern and southern sides of the centre complex."

This would include two electric vehicle charging bays.

The building would also feature solar panels on its roof as well as storage units for the power generated.

Kaufland plans to open its first Australian store in 2021. It currently has about a dozen locations planned around the country.

Toowoomba Kaufland most likely to be the first operational in Australia.

South central seems to be going full steam ahead. Tower craine was erected 2 weeks ago and they have almost built the first level.
