Brisbane Road car park site options to be re-evaluated
Council will reassess the Brisbane Road car park redevelopment after the withdrawal of Abacus Investments Pty Ltd. Although this is disappointing, I am confident we can get a good result for Mooloolaba. Council has always recognised this important site was under-utilised in its current form. Our priority has always been to optimise what we could see delivered on this site in a way that achieved some of our important place making objectives for Mooloolaba. As a priority, we will now thoroughly explore all options, understanding that the Mooloolaba business community in particular needs certainty around the site’s future. This project will go to a future Ordinary Meeting. When considering potential options, council will at all times focus on achieving the best long-term outcome for our ratepayers.
