ThomsonAdsett recently designed several Coles Local supermarkets for affluent Brisbane suburbs where the high streets have suffered as a result of customers being drawn away to large shopping centres.
The Bardon project is a 1725 sqm Coles Local supermarket with a 150 sqm Liquorland and off-street parking for 105 cars. An activated street frontage reflects the high street building scale, and the timber and tin materials palette reflects the
pre-1946 houses in the suburb.
This smaller format supermarket will complement full-line supermarkets located in larger centres and will offer suburban residents more choice for their daily needs. This development will revitalise the Bardon village by providing an anchor destination which will benefit the other local retailers.
The development application for this project is currently with Brisbane City Council.
ThomsonAdsett has a close relationship with Coles, and the quality of the design has been well received and appears to be fast-tracking the development application approval.
