#1 Post by Torrens_5022 » Fri Dec 09, 2016 9:47 am

$12m Brighton Central shopping centre has started, 3 houses and old bank demolished late November / early December. I haven't been able to find much details on the development - apart from this http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/messenger ... 8efc2c01ef.

How this suburban supermarket’s about to grow up — to the tune of $17m

WOOLWORTHS will replace its Brighton supermarket with a store more than twice as large above a ground-level carpark.

Holdfast Bay Council’s Development Assessment Panel approved the $17 million plan this week, two months after approving the expansion of the nearby Brighton Central shopping centre, also on Brighton Rd.

The new Woolworths supermarket will take up 3630sq m of the 5540sq m site, compared with the current supermarket’s 1500sq m footprint.

The ground level will feature a 168-space carpark and entrance foyer with escalators, stairs and a lift to the top-storey supermarket.

A Woolworths spokesman said the project would create 80 construction jobs and 30 new fulltime jobs.

He could not say when work would start.

In October, the panel approved a $12 million expansion of the Brighton Central shopping centre, about 650m south.

As well as expanding the centre’s Foodland supermarket, the project will add more carparks and cover an outside mall.

Noise from a loading dock facing the street and trucks queuing to use it, were the main concerns of Keelara St residents who spoke at Wednesday’s panel meeting.

Representing one of them, planner Amanda Price-McGregor contended the 2.5-times larger supermarket would bring 2.5 times more trucks to Keelara St.

Woolworths planner Greg Vincent said this was not the case because semi-trailers now come to the store half-full and after the development, they would be full.

“Effectively, the number of semi-trailer vehicles moves from two a day to three a day,” Mr Vincent said.

There would actually be less noise than now, he said, because trucks would load in a dock rather than outside.

He said the existing supermarket, which was formerly an IGA and before that a Coles and a Bi-Lo, was “rundown and old”.

The panel asked why the carpark could not be underground and the supermarket at ground level.

Mr Vincent said it was “cost-prohibitive”.

Part of the site is also in a floodplain.

They really should put the car park on the second floor. Why do developments like this still happen? No more ground level car parks in a multi-level shopping centre please.

Floorplan of the extension - http://www.brightoncentral.com.au/wp-co ... 24x724.jpg. There keeping the old shops (blue), not sure how they will incorporate the northern mall, since Foodland will be built right up to front - probably gut the shops and face them towards the carpark

Woolworths Brighton is closing on the 28th of January for redevelopment.
Brighton Central is pretty much finished, looks nice enough, the speciality stores are pretty small, Foodland has an odd setup, especially between the fresh food section and the grocery aisles it seems to be a bit of maze, hopefully some takeway food places open. The three outside businesses in the new building have moved into the mall, hopefully a takeaway shop or three moves in.
