We understand that convenient access and sufficient parking is important for Kangaroo Point residents.
The proposal includes around 190 car parks, within a three-level basement for future customers, residents and visitors.
Dedicated parking for parents, people with disability is included along with spaces for motorbikes and bike racks.
Pedestrian access to the ground floor retail will be at the corner of Deakin Street and Ferry Street. To make it easy for Kangaroo Point residents to walk and shop, we will upgrade paths and access around our site.
Customer access to car parks will be from Ferry Street, while access for future residents will be from Prospect Street. These arrangements avoid traffic entering and exiting from Deakin Street to minimise congestion.
Our supporting traffic assessment report identifies the local road network can accommodate additional traffic without adverse impact. Deakin Street is planned to be widened to allow for a turn in lane into Ferry Street.
Woolworths has lodged a Development Application with Brisbane City Council seeking approval for a new Metro store, specialty shops, office spaces and apartments at the largely vacant site bounded by Ferry, Deakin and Prospect Streets, Kangaroo Point.
