The planners at Urbis state, “Buranda Village shopping centre first opened in 1978. Since then, there have been only relatively minor modifications and refurbishments made to the existing shopping centre. The existing centre is now tired and dated and represents a poor quality architectural and urban design outcome in a visually prominent location along Ipswich Road”.
“The proposed development represents a once in a generation opportunity to revive and revitalise this existing centre into a world-class mixed use precinct with a highly activated ground plane and high quality urban design outcome.”
