Not in love with the brick annex. I think the light touch of the current extension with matching awning is much more appealing. Hiding that neighbouring tower is a bonus though.

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”.
