Jobs boost at $45 million shopping village

Posted: 3pm 21 Jul 2020

A new $45 million retail development is set to transform the site of a former shopping centre and bring jobs to the Moreton Bay Region.

Property Solutions is building Murrumba Village, a shopping and childcare complex, where Tulip Town used to stand in Kallangur.

The new retail centre, on the corner of Anzac Avenue, Cecily Street and Brays Road, is scheduled to open in October 2021. The childcare centre in July 2021.

Work is also well underway on the Linx Residences, which back onto Murrumba Village. Both will have entrances off Cecily Street.

Stage one of the Linx development, which will eventually have 107 three-bedroom townhouses, has already sold out. Stage two, of three, is now available.

“This will have a positive impact for the community and it will create jobs,” says David Blanck, managing director of Property Solutions.

“We saw a demand and a market for these services and believe this will be good for the area.”

What will be there?

Murrumba Village will include a Fresh & Save Food Warehouse, which is part of IGA and the second in the Moreton Bay region. The other is at Morayfield.

There will also be a Liquorland, five restaurants, a barber, beauty and nail salon, laundromat and Australia Post parcel pick-up centre.

A Medical and Allied Health Centre will have radiology, allied health, doctor’s surgery, Priceline Pharmacy, dental surgery, physio and exercise physiology centre, pathology and café.

There will be a Caltex fuel station and a Lead Childcare centre with 206 places, a swim school and before-and-after school care. Construction is due to start in October.

Nod to history

Mr Blanck says consideration was given to remembering the former Tulip Town shopping centre, which many in the area still remember.

However, it was decided a nod to the Anzacs was more appropriate given the centre’s position on Anzac Avenue.

The Murrumba Village logo incorporates an element similar in shape to the ‘rising sun’ of the Australian Army badge.
