^^ The potential is definitely there to activate spaces like this and under the REX, without a doubt. That said, I think Queen's Wharf will be slightly different in that the main 'dwell areas' will be aligned to the spaces not directly under the REX, with the areas directly beneath it largely comprising of landscaped spaces designed to be passed through to get to the Landing/Resort. One main exception to this is the children's water play area - how they handle that space will be very interesting.

Here are some more West Village shots that I took earlier this week, mainly aimed at checking out Metro Arts' new premises.

The woolies in this one plus the one at montague markets. Are they quite close together or reckon they will be able to sufficiently service the area, without overlap?

The article below talks about the area being under serviced by supermakets and locals spending $81m a year buying groceries in surrounding areas so should be all good. Personally I'm looking forward to Harris Farm opening a flagship store.

Two West End Woolworths Set to Open in 2020 - First National Real Estate Metro - Buy, Sell, Real Estate, Property and Homes for Lease & Rent. West End, Brisbane, Wolloongabba (metrofn.com.au)
In 2018 there was an Aldi, and Coles in the old jack the slasher site. and an IGA on melbourne st and a woolies metro in grey st

In 2020, there is woolies on Montague Rd, open (full service). Aldi, Coles (refurbishment in progress) , IGA, the woolies metro above AND another at the QPAC corner, and another woolies full service in direct competition to Coles coming in West Village.

I think the market responded. Its probably over supplied.

Woolies Metro on Grey (Fish lane) is only new which a month or two old. IGA has been there for a while though. BI LO at The Markets West End was taken over by Coles and rebranded to a Coles and recently refurbished to a Coles standard. Aldi has been there for a while too. I think the area was under serviced by now looking well serviced for the short term.

For a population of 20,000 and a significant employment and visitor population, 7 supermarkets (large and small) seems about right. That also considers that Woolloongabba only has 1 supermarket and residents of the CBD south may make the trip across the river for bigger shops.
