Three Restaurants at Westfield Garden City Shopping Centre Proposed

A development application seeking approval to establish three stand-alone restaurants over land in Westfield Garden City Shopping Centre has been submitted.



The application proposes the development of a Slim’s Burger, Starbucks and Guzman Y Gomez restaurant in the northeast car park field of the shopping centre located at 2049 Logan Road, Upper Mount Gravatt. The establishment of the three stand-alone food and drink outlets will result in a net increase in gross floor area within the precinct of 671sqm.

“The proposed Food and Drink Outlets will activate an area adjacent to the Logan Road and Kessels Road site frontage that has, until now, been used for car parking purposes. The proposal will provide a built form connection between the intersection and the northeast shopping centre entry entertainment and lifestyle precinct and to the commercial and retail precincts adjoining the Logan / Kessels / Mount Gravatt-Capalaba Roads intersection,” the planners at Sinclair Planning said in its assessment report.

The proposed development will be delivered in two stages.

Stage 1 involves the construction of Building 1 (Guzman Y Gomez) and Building 2 (Starbucks) with a drive-through facility comprising 210sqm and 223sqm GFA, respectively. The first stage of the proposal also includes the redesigning of the balance area for at-grade ancillary car parking as well as the relocation of the existing pedestrian pathway through the carpark to the entertainment and lifestyle precinct.

Stage 2 will involve the establishment of Building 3 (Slim’s Burger) plus a drive-through facility with a total GFA of 238sqm. Landscaping improvements are also proposed within the development. The landscaping improvements will include:

  • Setback landscaping improvements to Logan Road, comprising retention of existing trees, new tree planting and low-level shrubs and groundcovers;
  • Planting between the buildings comprising new tree planting and low-level shrubs and groundcovers;
  • Retention of existing trees and new tree planting within car parking areas where practicable;
  • Retention of existing trees and new tree planting and low-level shrubs and groundcovers along the pedestrian access connecting the Logan and Kessels Roads intersection with the main shopping centre building north-east entry.

To accommodate the proposed development, 63 of the 247 car parking spaces in the area will be removed. Hence, the proposal will bring the centre’s current total car parking provision from 5,566 to 5,503 and the total approved provision to 5,500 from 5,563.
