About the project

The proposed development seeks an additional 21,561.47m2 in site area and 185 additional carparking spaces. The existing success of the Bunnings Warehouse in this location speaks to the demand for the large format retail offering in this locality. The proposal to expand the existing Bunnings Warehouse in this location presents a logical opportunity to provide for an integrated large format retail offering that better caters to existing demand. As one of Australia’s largest retail employers, the expansion of the Bunnings Warehouse inherently provides for additional employment opportunities for the immediate locality having a flow on effect into the local economy.

  • Facilitation and attendance at pre-lodgement meetings with Brisbane City Council
