There will be two buildings for a showroom, with a total floor area of 8,530 sqm. The buildings will be used mainly for sports and recreation, which will accommodate a range of tenancies such as gyms and fitness studios, dance or martial arts studios, indoor sports courts, activity centres, amusement parlours, and bowling alleys.

Comiskey Group is also seeking to add a 1040 sqm restaurant precinct building that would be home to a variety of food tenancies.

The food and drink outlets, based on planning documents, have been designed to provide sufficient car parking and drive-thru queuing areas to ensure the free flow of vehicle movements through the site is maintained.

Meanwhile, the proposed parking space will have the capacity to house up to 508 cars. Planning reports said “the proposed development has been designed with provision for 508 on-site car parking spaces, which equates to one car parking space per 25 sqm of GFA or use area.”

The proposal is currently undergoing public notification. As of writing, the proposal has received a number of submissions from residents, who are mainly concerned about the road impacts it might bring to the area, and the site being a flood-prone area.

One resident said the northern entry and exit ramps onto Gympie road are too small for the size of the car park and vehicles anticipated during peak event times. 

“This will cause backups and major disruption to traffic on Gympie road. The development must not impact the traffic along Gympie road,” the submission reads.
