Construction is set to begin in one of the busiest sites in Mt Gravatt, where a used car yard will be transformed into a service station with a few fast-food restaurants with drive-thru service.



The development, which has been three years in the making and also impacts High Street and Creighton Street, is finally pushing through by the end of October. Once completed, the former car yard will boast of a new Hungry Jack restaurant, a Zaraffas Coffee Shop, and a 7-Eleven service station. These establishments are expected to open 24 hours a day.

A bus stop along Logan Road will be moved a few metres northward to make way for the new development, which was largely uncontested by the residents.  Prior to the filing of the DA, the developers had pre-lodgement meetings in 2016 with members of the Council. 

The transformation will provide 36 car parking spaces for all of the tenants and their customers. Approval for this development (DA A005030044) was decided in August 2019.

It comes as Hungry Jack has just opened a new outlet at the Rochedale Village whilst a KFC fast food outlet with drive-thru also opened on Logan Road towards the Eight Mile Plains section in April. Another KFC outlet, taking over Mt Gravatt Montezuma, is also awaiting development approval.
