Grandie exterior all done
EXTERNAL construction is complete on the $500 million redevelopment of Grand Central shopping centre in Toowoomba, owned by the Queensland Investment Corporation, and the project will be complete within months, according to Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk.
The Premier said Grand Central had doubled in size to about 90,000sq m and would support an extra 1000 local retail and hospitality jobs on top of the 1500 jobs created during the construction phase.
“Currently the centre is finalising a new and exciting fresh food precinct and dining destination, including a range of restaurants and cafes,” she said.
“Grand Central will clearly become an exciting and unrivalled lifestyle destination to shop, eat and be entertained in this growing region.
“Once the development is complete, up to another 160 speciality retailers will have been added to the centre.”
Treasurer Curtis Pitt said the vision for Grand Central was to create a magnetic place for the community to come together which embodied the pride, tradition, culture and opportunity of the Toowoomba region
