Plans have been submitted for a new Hungry Jack’s restaurant featuring a drive-through and an additional food outlet to be constructed at the Jindalee Direct Factory Outlet shopping centre.
The plans from CCN Architects call for reconfiguring the internal layout of the Direct Factory Outlet shopping complex to make way for new dining and retail spaces. This would be Phase 3 of developments at the complex, located at 11 Pavilions Close, Jindalee.
The realignment would rearrange the Bonds, Florentine, and other specialty shops on the ground level to improve sight lines. The two proposed food tenancies, a 460 sqm Hungry Jack’s and a 180 sqm food and drink outlet, would be situated in the existing Level B car park area near Pavilions Close.
To accommodate the buildouts, changes to the car parking layout would also be completed, adding 32 new spaces. New vehicle access roads and pedestrian crossings are included as part of the proposal.
The outlets would be open 24/7, with the planning report stating the location towards the centre of the site would maximise safety and minimise impacts on nearby residential areas. Setbacks, building separation, and landscaping are also called out as methods to maintain amenity.
“The proposal will involve extensions to the existing centre on the site, consisting of two new tenancies within the existing car park, with a consequential increase in carparking. Additionally, the uppermost carparking deck will be extended,” planners stated.
“The proposal will not result in an increase in overall height of the development, nor cause any adverse impacts on the amenity of the locality as demonstrated through compliance with noise and traffic criteria of Brisbane City Plan 2014. Furthermore, the improved design of the new spaces around the buildings will offer greater levels of amenity to pedestrian users of the centre.”
The plans are currently in for review, with construction timelines depending on the application approval.
