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.
Coles Local Taringa will be a 2690 sqm supermarket with a 150 sqm Liquorland and 99 off-street parking spaces.
This smaller format supermarket will complement full-line supermarkets located in larger centres and will offer suburban residents more choice for their daily needs. It will provide a much needed anchor and be a catalyst for the revival of Taringa Village high street.
Carefully articulated facades front Moggill Road and Swann Road, including a prominent architectural corner element.
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.
