Cinebar Cinema, Goodlife Health Club and Goodstart Childcare Centre have been announced as the next tenants for the $140 Million transport orientated development, located at Samford Road, Ferny Grove.
Cinebar is a boutique cinema initially established in Rosalie and is now expanding into the 2,100sqm tenancy to provide a cinema experience for Ferny Grove Central.
David Taylor, co-owner of Cinebar outlined that discussions had been occuring for a couple of years.
“It was doing our head in because there were pressures coming at us from all sides. Cinemas were shutting down, streaming was seemingly taking over the world and distributors were creating their own platforms”.
“So you had to have balls of steel to say yes but we all discussed it and usually the consensus of the group is a good one, so it’s a great opportunity”.
“Because it’s greenfield it’s an amazing opportunity to do all the things there that we’ve been slowly incorporating into Rosalie”.
“The unique thing about us is that we are the only cinema in Brisbane which offers total full service, kitchen and waiters,” he said.
– 15 year lease
– fully licensed venue
– luxury recliner seats
– tables with in-seat waiter service
– cinema, bar and restaurant
– accommodate 416 people
– six cinema screens
Cinebar will join Goodlife Health Clubs and a Goodstart Early Learning childcare centre in the retail hub, with Woolworths Supermarket and Dan Murphys announced as anchor tenants in the mixed use development adjacent to Ferny Grove railway station.
Taylor Macri, from JLL outlined how Ferny Grove Central was proving popular with quality tenants looking for projects that cater to local communities as the work-from-home trend continues to dominate.
“We have seen a massive uptake in leasing activity post Covid across suburban centres like Ferny Grove”.
“Many people are still working from home and-or part time and this has allowed tenants in these developments and centres to experience a significant increase in turnover”.
“Local and national groups are also expanding their footprint by relocating to Ferny Grove Central and future-proofing their businesses by capitalising on this growth,” Mr Macri said.
