Won't be long now before the Strathpine Centre redevelopment construction starts .. they announced it on their social media with a few shots of the plans.

Its a desperately needed redesign of the front of the centre .. I just hope they can get some decent tenants in there. Since this centre was sold by westfields its been a bit up and down. The food court has been struggling for a long time .. a few bad decisions made there as far as tenants go but it seems to be coming around .. the plans for the new centre include what appears to be new restaurants and cafes.

You can view the plans for that refurb here ..

Other than the centre refurb that whole strip of Gympie Rd. needs a revitalisation of some sort. Its littered with vacant shops and tired buildings.

I live just down the road in Bald Hills so I keep an eye on the local development applications .. only other cool thing coming up is a new Taco Bell in Strathpine directly across from the Hungry Jacks .. that DA is in the decision stage now and will get approved in the next week or two. I know some people don't like Taco Bell but I love it! and this area desperatly needs some new fast food. Was hoping for a Carls Jr. but that doesn't look like its gonna happen anytime soon.

Heres the DA for the new servo and Taco Bell accorss from HJ's on Gympie Rd.

Work starts on up-market lifestyle precinct in North Lakes set to draw crowds from afar
After years of stagnation, work has finally started on a mixed-use precinct - including a new shopping and dining strip, lagoon-style pool and recreational areas - that is set to transform a southeast Queensland community.

CONSTRUCTION has started on an up-market lifestyle centre in the north of Brisbane touted to become a drawcard for the whole southeast.

Four years in the making, Laguna North Lakes has been billed as the next big thing in trendy shopping and lifestyle activities.

The 1.7ha site bordered by North Lakes and Lakefield drives and The Corso will offer a mixed-use precinct featuring a lagoon-style pool, high-street shopping and dining scene, gym and wellness spaces, TRYP hotel by Wyndham and underground car parking.

The George Group – of Brisbane’s James Street precinct fame – in a joint venture with developer Pointcorp appointed McNab Construction in December last year to build the vast centre.

George Group director Patrick George said the centre’s allure was its uniqueness.

“The offering of recreational-style retail will not only appeal to the Moreton Bay region but a new audience too,” he said.

“A range of retailers, services and products that are boutique and unique, combined with an open-air experience will provide the community with a social hub which is unlike other retail destinations.”

After years of standing stagnant the land was still owned by Moreton Bay Regional Council after being bought from Stockland for about $6.6 million.

“There is a development lease in place between council and the developers,” a MBRC spokesman said.

“This arrangement allows council to retain a level of control over the development outcome on the site.

“Council will transfer ownership of the land once Stage 1 of the development has been completed.

“Stage 1 underpins the entire site’s development and includes the publicly available swimming pool, green space and underground carpark.”

According to council the Queensland Government Architect supported the design of the project and commended the developer’s goal to transform a strategically important site at North Lakes into a high-quality mixed-use development.

Developers said the project was due to be completed in two-and-a-half years.

Why have more urban sprawl? Why not take an infill approach and redevelopment the Caboolture Town Centre and allow more.high density housing and provide better facilities e.g. New aquatic centres new improved retail experiences etc. .. then people can walk to the station. They can use that proposed empty land for farming and cannabis crops for new medicines etc....

It seems like the wheels are in motion, There has to be a better plan for the area. If just urban sprawl? The area between Caloundra and Helensvale will resemble the LA Basin.
