“Wynnum CBD area has been left behind with no development occurring in the last 20 years. Land owners and businesses are left to struggle with reduced returns and trading days (5 if lucky) and reduced trading hours”.

“Most small businesses in the area lose money early week due to lack of volume and fixed overheads and struggle to make ends meet on weekends. Our project is to design to put Wynnum CBD on the “open for business” Map”.

“This landmark development, with a construction cost estimated at $130m will have a huge financial and community positive impact on the Wynnum CBD and surrounding areas”.

– HamBros Pty Ltd vision.

    Just to bring some sanity to comments of ‘disgust’ against the ‘greedy and irresponsible’ council – this proposal has been submitted by a developer to council, council haven’t approved it and they probably haven’t even started their assessment of it yet.
    In the unlikely event that they ignore their own plan and approve it in its current form then yes, you could say they were irresponsible etc, but until then these comments make no sense.

    How do we show our disgust at Brisbane council for even letting this proposal break wind – two of the worst type of persons in today’s world are developers and estate agents both of whom have no concern for “Joe blow” and these are the people who make Wynnum what it is – so they can shove the BS – go away and leave us alone – we don’t want you or your money ideas

    Where is the environmental and social impact statement for such a disastrous scheme? Clearly no thought given to the surrounding environment or the residents of Wynnum. Business owners may benefit, but at what cost to the local area? Making money is not everything – NO TO THIS DEVELOPMENT!

    This is a monolithic and architecturally moribund project proposed for a town centre that is starting to show recovery as an eclectic low rise living environment with boutique shops and cafes. Should never be allowed..

    This is so out of proportion it’s just wrong. Sure develop the areas but something that isn’t a massive box that obstructs and detracts from the area.
    The code is there for a reason. And that reason is so that developers don’t build this.
