Grandie ex­te­rior all done

The Chronicle - - NEWS -

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
