FAQs

Woolworths is planning a Metro store, specialty stores and apartments at the largely vacant site at 905-915 Logan Road, Holland Park. A Development Application is currently being prepared.

A 1,500m2 Woolworths Metro store is proposed, which will provide a great range of products to meet every day needs, making it easier to do quick shopping trips throughout the week.

We have now lodged a Development Application with Brisbane City Council following our initial communications and engagement phase. The Development Application can be viewed here

Public Notification

Council decision

The project is currently in the planning phase and we will shortly lodge a Development Application. We will have a better understanding of possible timing following Council’s assessment of our Development Application.

The hours of operation will be determined by Council in the future. If approved, the likely opening hours of the Metro store will be from 7am to 9pm Monday to Saturday and from 7am to 6pm Sunday and Public Holidays. The trading hours of other retail stores will be advised when known.

Waste and recycling services will generally take place before store opening and after close. In general, servicing is expected to be no earlier than 6.00am and no later than 10.00pm.  Service bays are proposed within the building to mitigate noise to surrounding properties.

Yes, Woolworths home delivery services will continue for Holland Park.

Yes, drive-through collection bays are planned within the basement car park, for customers who prefer to pick-up their online grocery orders at a time that suits.

The proposal includes 284 car parks within a two-level basement for future customers, residents and visitors.
Dedicated parking for parents, and people with disability is included along with spaces for motorbikes and bike racks. Access to car parking will be from Crump Street.

Pedestrian access will be at the corner of Logan Road and Crump Street. To make it easy for Holland Park residents to walk and shop, we will upgrade paths and access around our site.

Our initial traffic studies show that safe and efficient use of local streets will continue and a detailed traffic assessment will be submitted to Council as part of the Development Application.

Cars will access the site via the intersection of Crump Street and Logan Road and access to the basement car park is on Crump Street. Service vehicles will access the basement car park via a separate driveway on Crump Street.

The proposed building design and layout includes deep planting and screening to adjoining properties and building setbacks from the property boundary. Service areas such as rubbish, recycling and delivery bays are located within the proposed building to reduce the impact of noise on neighbouring properties.

You can provide your feedback on the proposal via the online survey on this project website or you contact the team directly to discuss the proposal:

As the Development Application is 'impact assessable', the community can also provide feedback to Council during the future Public Notification phase. We will let the community know when the Public Notification period commences.
