Grande plans for new shopping centre

Construction of the long-planned shopping centre in south-west Springfield Lakes will finally begin soon, according to the site’s new owner.

The new Springfield Grande shopping centre – previously referred to as Springfield Lakes Shopping Village – will be built on the corner of Springfield-Greenbank Arterial and Grande Avenue.

It will serve as the first retail stop for people travelling to Springfield from Logan West via the Arterial Road.

David Anderson, the leasing agent for Limbada Group, said construction would likely begin at the end of the year, with hopes to open in early 2025.

A sign indicating the new development has been erected on the site – and lists several retail options that have already committed to leasing.

These include Snap Fitness, Jax Tyres & Auto, a 7/11, and Drakes supermarket. Plans also accommodate a pharmacy, laundromat, various hair and beauty outlets, as well as a cafe and restaurants.

A childcare centre with at least 200 places is also under consideration, according to the developer.

Plans for this site have been in the pipeline for at least a decade, with the earliest phases of construction beginning in 2021 prior to the abrupt withdrawal of the previous developer.

Limbada Group takes over from Taree Property, which entered voluntary liquidation in recent years.

Springfield Grande will set up shop at 11 Grande Avenue, Springfield Lakes – opening from early 2025.
