Today I had the pleasure of attending a site visit to the Coles development project in the Sippy Downs Town Centre.
I was joined by Coles representatives, the building foreman, a council planner and one of our civil engineers.
During the tour I had the opportunity to walk inside the building and see the progress being made to date.
So what’s happening?
– The walls and roof beams are up.
– Roofing and insulation is being installed.
– Plumbing is occurring along with site drainage.
– A new right turn lane has been installed on Sippy Downs Drive.
The project is progressing well despite the weather with areas of the site holding water showing the need for adequate draininge.
A few questions raised by the community:
Q) When will the centre open?
A) Early 2017.
Q) When can residents apply for jobs?

Q) Will there be enough parking and how will it be regulated to stop students parking there?
A) There will be 170 parking spaces and the centre will have timed parking which will be monitored by parking regulators.
