A community-focused development which includes a health care facility, childcare centre, and pharmacy, separated into two buildings, on the corner of Wardell Street and Samford Road, Enoggera has been proposed.
The proposed site is located at 347 Wardell Street and 185-197 Samford Road, adjacent to the existing Enoggera neighbourhood centre and within walking distance of the Enoggera train station.
The proposed development is for a mixed-use, community-focused development separated into two buildings across the site with a maximum height of three storeys.
The medical-oriented focused development (Building A), with a gross floor area of 1,738 sqm, is proposed to be located at the corner of Wardell Street and Samford Road, and will contain a mix of health care services and health-oriented office (1,371 sqm), food and drink outlet (73 sqm), and pharmacy (294 sqm).
Building B, with a gross floor area of 811 sqm, is proposed to be located in the eastern portion of the site and proposed to be a childcare-oriented focus development. The childcare centre will accommodate up to 113 children and will feature covered terrace areas and two outdoor play areas.
The proposal provides two vehicles accesses: one at the north-west corner on Wardell Street and the second one in the middle of the Samford Road frontage. There will be 59 car spaces including 24 childcare centre use (10 user spaces and 14 staff spaces) and 35 for other uses.
“The proposed development is for a mixed-use, community-focussed development that responds to the site’s inclusion in the Neighbourhood Centre Zone, without competing with the function of the existing Enoggera centre; provides a transition to the adjacent residential area; responds in design and land use to the adjacent heritage listed community hall; and overall contributes to the establishment of a community precinct,” the Mewing Planning Consultants Assessment report said.
