New developments are popping up everywhere across Brisbane’s southside — here are the ones to watch in 2019. From controversial townhouse projects to incredible redevelopments that will change the face of the area.

Mansfield Tavern could soon be turned into a “destination” not unlike Fortitude Valley’s James St, if plans lodged to Brisbane City Council are approved.

The Wecker Road Markets will be a “community node and meeting place” that offers a unique centre that “improves connectivity and is highly permeable for pedestrians and cyclists”.

The centre is expected to be “more than merely a place to collect the weekly groceries” and will become a “destination” for Mansfield.

The development application for the 181 Wecker Rd site, which is 2.08ha, was submitted on behalf of Mansfield Investment Queensland Pty Ltd.

The development project is designed by architects Cottee Parker.

The landmark Scurr Bros’ site is set to get a major facelift that will bring new businesses to Mt Gravatt.

The 7417sq m property at 1437 Logan Rd will be transformed into a health and wellness-style centre by mid-2019.

The site was first owned by the Scurr family in the early 1900s and RP Data records show it was sold in 2001 for $3.45 million.

Current owner Pigozzo Group is keen to retain the building but give the structure and the carpark a freshen up.

The fate of small southside community is in the hands of Brisbane City Council officers who will decide if a massive development, for as many as 750 dwellings, will go ahead.

Nathan residents have spent years fighting to stop land owners Southway Services Pty Ltd from changing the zoning of the site from industrial to residential and from building the “monstrosity” that will include apartments, townhouses and retirement precinct with heights of up to four-storeys.

If council were to approve the development application for 53 Fairlawn St it would double the population of the quiet suburb which is nestled into the Toohey Forest.

A community in Brisbane’s south will continue to wage war with a developer looking to build a 29-townhouse development.

A Development Application was lodged in December and signs were erected in early January to mark the start of the submissions period.

Letters for and against the proposed development, which encompasses 6 and 8 Nurran St and 64 and 68 Carrara St, Mt Gravatt East and create a pentagon-shaped area that is almost 7000sq m, can be made until February 4.

Furious residents are willing to continue their battle to stop the controversial development from destroying the character of their area, according to the Mount Gravatt East Townhouse Development Action Group, which is spearheading the campaign.

Sunnybank residents are rallying to oppose plans for a developer to build 24 townhouses and 20 units over five stages in the already busy Trudgian St.

The street is already bursting at the seams catering to locals and the traffic caused by Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School, which has a pick up/drop off zone on the same street, according to locals.

Residents have told the Southern Star they were concerned about pedestrian and child safety, the increase of traffic and the size of the development.

A $100 million redevelopment is planned to turn an “eyesore” on Brisbane’s southside into a premier destination for shopping, dining and living.

The 48 Creek Rd, Mt Gravatt East site, which was once owned by Masters and home to Central Fair Shopping Centre, will be redeveloped by Spotlight Group Holdings.

A Development Application is expected to be lodged with Brisbane City Council in mid-2019.

Late last year joint owner and executive deputy chairman Zac Fried told the Southern Star in an exclusive interview his architects were drawing “inspiration” from Santana Row which was an upscale residential and commercial district of San Jose, California, in Silicon Valley.

Veteran real estate agent Michael Sunderland, from Karalis Real Estate, is very excited about his particular project.

He told the Southern Star Mt Gravatt was booming with residential and commercial opportunities which meant big things for the southside.

“There is so much happening in Mt Gravatt and particular in Mt Gravatt Central,” he said.

“There are so many new developments and redevelopments popping up including the old Central Fair Shopping Centre/Masters site and the Scurr site.

“The redevelopment of the Masters site will be the absolute making of the area,” Mr Sunderland said.

“There are also apartment Development Applications popping up everywhere.

“Making it more affordable to live in this area.”

An amazing bunch of projects but like Inala Sports and the very slow new Red Hill Cinemas, it is good to see former derelict sites being redeveloped out that way.

Just noticed today the Bradken industrial site next to Runcorn Train Station is up for sale, advertising its potential for massive development.

Could potentially be an amazing TOD development that would completely change the face of that area

Huge domestic and overseas interest expected for Runcorn property, which has the potential to be transformed into a TOD
A rare and sizeable industrial offering with huge future opportunity, including the potential for a transit-oriented development (TOD), is expected to be highly sought after when it hits the market in June.

The 16.2 ha Runcorn property at Nathan Road, situated 20 minutes south of the Brisbane CBD, is owned by Bradken, a global foundry business serving the mining sector. The company has been manufacturing iron and steel parts for mining and construction equipment on the site for more than 60 years, having purchased it in 1955.

Mark Clifford and Christian Sandstrom of Knight Frank will take the property to market via an expressions of interest campaign next month.

Mr Clifford said it was expected the site would generate strong buyer interest from a wide range of developers, including both domestic and from overseas, looking at many different types of uses.

“This is an exciting opportunity full of potential for any developer, and many have actually been eyeing off the site for several years,” he said.

“While it is currently zoned for industrial use, as urban sprawl has occurred over the years it has become surrounded by residential properties and we believe it has potential for a variety of uses.

“Since it’s situated right next to the Runcorn train station, one of those potential uses is a transit-oriented development, which could comprise a mix of commercial, retail and residential space.

“The opportunity is huge for a TOD on this site, especially considering the focus on rail infrastructure in Queensland and improvements to connectivity. The train line that runs through the Runcorn station into Brisbane city feeds into the Cross River Rail, which is firmly on the Government’s agenda.”

Mr Sandstrom said it was rare for a site of this magnitude to come onto the market, especially in Brisbane’s southside precinct.

“There are no big tracts of land like this in that booming area, especially situated right next to a train line,” he said.

“Future development options for the site will take into consideration the needs of the residents in the surrounding catchment, which may incorporate retail, commercial office, residential, allied health, aged care and other community uses. Given the scale of the site we anticipate any future development will incorporate open space for recreational purposes.

“We believe the proposed change from a heavy industrial use to more compatible uses will be favourably supported by the local residents.”

Operations at the foundry are expected to cease by mid to late next year.

Another parcel of land at Mackay owned by Bradken will also be listed for sale, as the company reorganises its presence in Queensland.

Operations at the Runcorn foundry have been in decline since 2012 as a direct result of the mining downturn and high costs of manufacturing, which is why the property is being divested, according to Bradken’s Executive General Manager for Mobile Plant Brad Ward.

“Our products compete at a global scale and the high cost of manufacturing in Australia, means keeping these operations running is not sustainable,” Mr Ward said.

“Like all businesses, we have to continually look at how our operations can remain competitive. We compete in a global market and have to deliver value to our customers.”

Bradken’s Australian foundries in Ipswich and Wodonga, Dunedin in New Zealand and Xuzhou in China have the capacity and space to take on the work currently being completed at Runcorn and Mackay.

“We’re looking forward to seeing what this site can deliver for the people of Brisbane, but our focus now is on making sure we look after our people who are impacted by this change,” Mr Ward said.

“We value our people and the work they do. Our manufacturing staff at Runcorn and Mackay have excellent reputations for the quality of the product they produce and the safe way they go about their work.

“We are supporting them with the skills to cope with this change and transition to new roles, where they might be available within Bradken, and also externally.”

Bradken employs about 3000 people worldwide, with about 400 in Queensland. The Runcorn sale will impact about 150 jobs and Mackay about 5 jobs. Bradken will still have a presence in Queensland with foundry and machine shop operations at Ipswich and other offices at Innisfail, the Port of Brisbane and Northgate. Bradken will retain a presence in Mackay after the sale of its existing site there.

Disappointing to see any large manufacturing firms like this close, but the location is hardly suitable. Anyone who has been in the area will be able to confirm their is a distinct smell which floats from the plant, which was ok in the 50's but it's now surrounded by residential and parkland on all sides.

I hope that any large-scale TOD for this location also comes with a plan to deal with the level crossings which exist along that stretch of the rail line though.

Redevelopment plans for former netball HQ at Moorooka

COURIER-MAIL QUEST----------------------->

Netball Queensland’s former HQ sold
MARCH 28, 2019
NETBALL Queensland’s long-term headquarters has been sold pending their relocation to a new purpose-built building in Nathan.

A private investor paid $2.202 million for their current HQ at 210-212 Beaudesert Rd in Moorooka.

Ray White Commercial’s John Dwyer, who sold the property with colleague Jason Hines, said it was offered vacant possession during the expressions of interest campaign which generated a number of inquiries from investors and owner-occupiers.

“Potential buyers really appreciated the opportunity that was on offer here, and that was highlighted by the fact we had more than 20 inquiries,” he said.

The long-term headquarters of Netball Queensland at 210-212 Beaudesert Rd, Moorooka.
“The property was originally purpose-built to house the Commonwealth Employment Service and was acquired by Netball Queensland as their HQ, where they stayed for some years.

“The investor plans on undertaking a major refurbishment before placing the property back on the market for lease.”

With 687sq m of net lettable area the property features 25 undercover car parks. According to CoreLogic it last changed hands in 2001 for $850,000.

The property is on the southern edge of the busy retail/commercial high street.

Mr Hines said the location of the asset alone was a major drawcard, and the flexibility of the site’s zoning opened up the potential for a variety of uses from standard office, medical centres and/or health and fitness groups

“The property is just 9km south west of Brisbane CBD, situated outbound on Beaudesert Rd, one of Brisbane’s major traffic thoroughfares,” he said.

“It also has excellent corporate exposure, as well as having council buses running past the front door.”

Aren't Kaufland stores a big box format similar in size to a Costco? If so, that definitely would have ruled them out at Yeerongpilly Green, as it wouldn't fit with what Consolidated Property are creating there.

I've had meetings with Kaufland a few years back and they were looking for about 8,000m2 so roughly the same as a Kmart or BigW. Requirements may have changed since meeting with them though.

The Bradken Foundry at Runcorn has been sold to a Chinese-backed local development group. The plan is to lease it as an industrial site in the short term, while they progress plans to redevelop the site into a mixed use precinct.

Bradken’s Runcorn Foundry site sells for $26m with new owners planning state-of-art mixed-used precinct

The new owners of a Brisbane steel and metal manufacturing site, owned for years by a global engineering giant, are aiming to transform the property into a state-of-the-art mixed-use precinct including shops, homes, entertainment and medical facilities.

GLOBAL heavy engineering giant Bradken’s Brisbane base for more than six decades has been sold and its new owners plan to transform the huge site into a state-of-the-art mixed-used precinct.

A Chinese-backed local development group paid $26 million for the 16.22ha site at 54A & 32 Bonemill Rd, Runcorn.

In the short-term the new owners will lease the property — dubbed The Foundry — to an industrial user while going through the rezoning and development approvals process with the Brisbane City Council.

In a high growth residential corridor, the brownfield site could be transformed into a mixed-use precinct with retail, commercial, residential, entertainment and medical facilities.

Knight Frank’s Christian Sandstrom, who struck the deal with Mark Clifford, said the campaign generated strong interest and eight offers from a diverse range of buyers.

“Interest in the site had been very strong even prior to the sale campaign, with both local and offshore buyers eyeing off the site for many years, with the intention of converting it from its current industrial use into a mixed-use development,” he said.

“It was a rare opportunity, being one of the last few remaining large brownfield sites close to public transport in Brisbane.

“The buyer intends to redevelop the site for a mixed-use scheme complementing the surrounding uses, subject to council approvals.”

Bradken had operated the foundry, which manufactured iron and steel parts for the mining and construction industry, since 1955.

It ceased operations in September last year. The company is owned by Hitachi Construction Machinery.

Mr Clifford said it was a prime redevelopment site opposite the Runcorn train station withy playing fields around it.

“A future redevelopment of the site will provide more housing, employment and facilities for residents of Brisbane’s south, while transforming Runcorn into a modern cosmopolitan hub,” he said.

“We work with many large clients who own or run industrial businesses to assist them in unlocking value in their property assets. The Runcorn site is a prime example of this. It’s an industrial property in a location with massive future potential for a higher and better use.”

Why Coles could be the next tenant at Ipswich Rd, Annerley site
One of Brisbane’s busiest roads will get a new supermarket, retail and office complex on a site which has sat unused for over two years. FIND OUT WHERE IT’S GOING.

PLANS have been submitted for a new four-storey shopping complex along one of Brisbane’s busiest roads.

The new centre on the corner of Ipswich Rd and Aubigny St, Annerley would include space for a new supermarket, liquor store and offices.

Gyms, childcare in shopping strip’s three-storey rebuild

Proposed apartments slammed by locals as ‘a joke’

While there is no concrete confirmation of which supermarket will move into the complex, the development application drops some interesting hints.

“Coles is under-represented in the area,” the application states.

“Currently, customers and residents within the catchment area have restricted choice of supermarket brands.”

Renders also show the building will have a red facade, strikingly similar to Coles’ current colour scheme.

The location is 1.5km south of the recently refurbished Woolworths Annerley, also on Ipswich Rd, and 1.9km north of Woolworths Moorooka on Beaudesert Rd.

The site, which includes a pre-1946 character home, was previously used as car saleyards until 2017.

The design will preserve the historic home and will have 155 car parks and 28 bike spaces on site.

The site’s developer, Capital Transactions Pty Ltd, states construction will create 105 jobs and the finished supermarket and liquor store will have a further 150 ongoing jobs.

The supermarket is planned to be 3,641 sqm, although the developer notes “an undersupply of 7,200 sqm of retail floorspace in the trade catchment of the subject site.”

That would have been a fantastic supermarket to have when I lived at Yeronga. There is a massive area in south Brisbane where Woolworths has a monopoly, with no Coles stores at all along Beaudesert Rd unless you travel across to Sunnybank, Pinelands, or Sunnybank Hills.
