The interior is alot better to what it was before. But it's not spectacular. I hope the refurb of Sunnybank Plaza is better.

I havent been inside the commercial areas, only the carparks. I am glad they have removed the internal road that goes around the island in the middle though. Makes it more pedestrian friendly

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.
^^I wrote a submission to this effect stating that it will improve competition.

There has been so many submissions for this development which is a bit unbelievable. I fully support this development and hope that it goes ahead. There has been a stop the clock on this DA and it will resume from September 7 with hopefully a decision by end of September. A005376233

Shame the design is not as appealing as the Coles Locals in Taringa or Bardon.

While we are talking Coles, have they started work on the Albert Street site?

Submissions for or against the proposal?

I like the design of Sunnybank Plaza and Market Square, they don't fit the norm's that you find in other shopping centres which is part of the cultural attraction. I'll go to Chermside, Garden City or Carindale if I want your stock standard shopping centre design.

Not so much the design it's just the colour they have chosen for the exterior at Market Square.

New Logan Rd Woolworths: Supermarket giant to lodge plans
A supermarket giant is canvassing plans for a new Woolworths Metro, specialty stores and 82 apartments which would generate 120 retail jobs and a further 200 jobs in construction.

Supermarket giant Woolworths plans to build a new Woolworths Metro store and 82 apartments contained within “two separate buildings of four and five floors” as part of a mixed-use development it is currently canvassing with the community prior to lodging a formal DA.

Residents in the vicinity of 905 – 915 Logan Rd, Holland Park West have received flyers in their mailbox about the retailer’s plans, while a new website has also been created spruiking the project and seeking feedback.

According to the distributed material, the $25 million retail and residential development would support 120 retail jobs once fully operational and 200 construction jobs in the building.

The Metro store would be about 1500 sqm, the apartments would feature one, two and three-bedroom designs, and there would be 284 carparks for “customers, residents and visitors” in a two-level basement, where there will be drive-through collection bays for click and collect shoppers.

Vehicular access would be via Crump St.

Metro stores, as opposed to full-range locations, are “designed to service a walk-up catchment and tailor for local customers looking for a quick and easy walk-up shopping experience”.

The distributed material states the future application “is likely to be impact assessable”, meaning residents will have a further opportunity to state their views to council.

“Woolworths expects to lodge a development application in the near future, following stakeholder engagement and feedback,” they said.

Reaction online to the proposal was mixed.

“This would be great, we need something like this in our suburb, especially a shopping centre,” said Joanna Humes.

“There’s a shopping centre already just down the road,” retorted Kathryn Denman.

“Traffic up and down Crump St is already awful with people rat running and speeding,” Stephen Denman said.

“Add in residents looking for carparks as well as staff parking on the street and trucks doing deliveries, it will be awful.”

The land at 905 – 915 Logan Rd, more than 6000 sqm, was sold at tender by LJ Hooker Sunnybank Hills in mid-2018.

It was marketed as an “unmissable opportunity” as “one of the last large development sites in the southern suburbs”.

^^Looks great, I am all for new supermarkets under new apartment developments. Especially in high density areas. It leads to better walkable and cyclable communities..

The more people who live within walking distance of a proper full-line supermarket (as opposed to some tiny little IGA or something like that) the better IMO.
So many people have to get in their car (or go ride a bus) just to buy the essentials (that or have it delivered)

I agree. I'm currently building a house within 500m walking distance of this proposal, fully support it and will make a submission. Currently I'd have to drive to Greenslopes Coles as the closest store, but being able to walk here would be best to limit car usage.

I havent compared them but are Woolies Metros like this size generally more expensive than normal Woolies?
I haven't bought a lot of stuff from any of them, but the few things I have bought weren't noticeably more expensive than the fullsize store in MacArthur Central.
