A development application has been lodged with the Brisbane City Council calling for an extension of Mt Ommaney Shopping Centre, as well as the amalgamation of existing retail tenancies.
The application, which was lodged on the 4th of May 2021, aims to accomplish two things: to have the Mt Ommaney Shopping Centre expand by extending its existing eastern loading area, and to reconfigure existing floor space to make way for Cotton On, a new and large clothing retail tenancy. Designs for the new floor plan have been drafted by Buchan Group.
Both the expansion and the reconfiguration would entail the demolition of internal and external walls, as well as the removal of external doors and the existing loading area. The internal walls of shopping centre tenancies will also be removed to accommodate Cotton On.
Three tenancies which total to an area of 332 square metres will be repurposed, and the building will also expand, increasing its gross floor area area by 326 square metres on top of having the loading area reconfigured.
The proposal is yet to be approved. Mt Ommaney Shopping Centre can be found at 171 Dandenong Rd, open every day of the week from 9:00 a.m. onwards with the exception of Sunday, in which case it opens at 10:00 a.m.
