Real estate in talks to bring major retailers to Kingaroy
KINGAROY will welcome some exciting big business developments to town in the near future including Bunnings, Coopers Gap wind farm, service stations, a solar farm and more.
But it doesn't look to be stopping there with project manager and owner director of Kingaroy North, and Kingaroy Real Estate principal David Taylor confirming he has been in talks with major retailers who have shown interest in the new estate.
"We would expect commitment from major commercials in the next 18 to 24 months," he said.
The 160 acre Kingaroy North development is beginning to gain momentum alongside the growth throughout the town.
There is a lot of positivity and a sense of all things old becoming new again at the moment with Kingaroy hospital and Swickers in the middle of significant upgrades, Mr Taylor said.
Kingaroy North will add to this.
"We will be starting works on the subdivision in six to eight months," Mr Taylor said.
Along with the 40 acres set aside for commercial usage, Kingaroy North will have 178 residential house blocks and 36 acres set aside for aged care facilities.
"Our focus is also on establishing the aged care and retirement village which we believe there is a great need for in Kingaroy," he said.
"Our aim is to have that started mid to late 2019."
Mr Taylor said he was excited about the future of Kingaroy and for Kingaroy North.
"The town is on the cusp of becoming a major regional centre and I believe we are on the tipping point of that change," he said.
"Investment and growth in Kingaroy is starting to escalate and the future of the town and district is looking very positive as we move into 2019."
