A more vibrant and lively Mt Ommaney Shopping Centre could become reality in the near future should the application for the Mt Ommaney Entertainment and Leisure Precinct be approved by Council.

The development application for the expansion of the shopping centre is currently being reviewed by Brisbane City Council. Vicinity Centres, owner of Mt Ommaney Shopping Centre, intends to create what the designer describes as a sculptural entertainment precinct. The sculptural area will be formed with cinemas in cubic forms and linked to the main mall via a serpentine bridge.

Along the sides of the serpentine bridge will be food and beverage outlets. There will also be open areas designed as gathering spaces for the community. Part of the open spaces will incorporate play structures for children, BBQ facilities and lawn mounds.

Landscaping along Dandenong Road will also be intensified as part of the proposed plan. From the cinema foyers, people will have a view of the green spaces.

Retail Spaces and Community Hub

Under the plan, some 11,000 square metres of dining and entertainment space will be added to the existing shopping centre. The expansion plan includes seven cinemas, food outlets, lifestyle and leisure spaces and a pub.

The proposal also involves the integration of the council’s library into the shopping centre. The DA also proposes to build a new community hub and a town centre to encourage after-hours activities. The existing community hub will be demolished and replaced by the new community centre under the plan.

Should the DA be approved according to schedule, construction should start before the end of the year. Completion is expected at the end of 2019 or early 2020.
