Three new venues boost Logan’s café culture

City of Logan residents will soon be able to have their cake and eat it too, with three new cafés proposed for public spaces across the city.

Logan City Council will call for tenders for the operation of café services at three sites:

  • Underwood Park
  • Berrinba Wetlands
  • Logan Village Green

City Lifestyle Committee Chair, Councillor Laurie Koranski said Council was continually looking at different ways to improve public spaces across the city.

“A café culture is growing across our city and we’ve had a number of requests from businesses to operate some of these facilities,” Cr Koranski said.

“The recent redevelopment of Underwood Park and the current upgrade of Logan Village Green has given Council the opportunity to go to tender for all three locations at the same time.”

Cr Koranski said Council was delivering on feedback from the community for more café facilities in parks and other public spaces.

“These are venues already enjoyed by various sporting clubs, families, community groups and people enjoying the outdoors,” she said.

“Offering a café service is value-adding to these already popular locations and helping to build tourism in the city.

“Council supports existing and new businesses in our city and is committed to creating jobs and improving amenity.

“These new cafes are an additional opportunity for those in the hospitality industry who have been impacted by the pandemic to get back on their feet or start a new venture.”

The tender process will be open to commercial operators, community organisations or social enterprises with a focus on providing quality service to the community while also demonstrating a commitment to positive social outcomes.

Operators can tender for one or more of the sites.

Tenders for the three locations will open next month.

Construction Underway On Berrinba Mixed Business And Industry Development

investLogan has recently commenced construction on a mixed business and industry precinct in Berrinba, which will deliver a much-needed boost to the local economy and expanding commercial space in the growing precinct.

The development was officially launched by investLogan Chair Steve Greenwood, Mayor of Logan City Darren Power and Councillor Jon Raven Deputy Mayor of Logan City (pictured).

The precinct is set to be located at 180-186 Wayne Goss Drive, Berrinba, creating more industrial space for local businesses and a secure investment opportunity for local investors.

Six mixed business and industry units are planned for the precinct, ranging from 200m2 to 250m2. Each unit will include office and showroom space, individual amenities and a fully accessible high-clearance warehouse.

The precinct will be situated in a highly visible site within the multi-award-winning South West 1 Enterprise Estate, and adjacent to the Berrinba Central development, the first stage set for completion by the end of 2021.

Lory Construction has been appointed to deliver the project and it will be marketed by Corwells for sale and lease.

investLogan Chairman Steve Greenwood said he was confident the demand from commercial and industrial businesses will continue to be strong locally.

“Demand for commercial and industrial space in Berrinba is increasing rapidly thanks to continued investment in infrastructure in the area,” Mr Greenwood said.

“We anticipate a high level of interest on the project, given high returns on commercial assets and long-term security to investors and tenants alike.”

Construction on the development is set for completion in early 2021.
