If you love the idea of devouring ‘hot and fresh donuts’ any time of the day, you will be delighted to know that a development application has been submitted for a 24/7 Krispy Kreme at Westfield Chermside.
Scentre Limited, the company that owns Westfield Chermside, has submitted a development application to the Brisbane City Council for a new drive-through stand alone Krispy Kreme.
Plans (A005834339) revealed it would be located in an area that has only previously been used for carparking. The proposed development results in a net reduction of 53 ancillary car parking spaces in the Stage 1 area.
Based on the planning documents, the work will be done in two stages. Stage 1 involves the car park redevelopment, construction of the Krispy Kreme with drive-through facilities, and a pedestrian pathway.
Works for Stage 2 would include the refurbishment of the southwest shopping centre’s external forecourt area, to improve the arrival experience through provision of improved landscaping, casual seating areas and a defined pathway to the shopping centre entry.
It also includes refurbishment of part of Level 1 above the south-west shopping centre entry, to enable expansion of an existing tenancy to create a larger tenancy area and kiosk for use as food and drink outlets.
“The refurbishments proposed to the south-west shopping centre entry forecourt area will provide sub-tropical ground level landscaping and a water feature, casual seating areas and breakout space, and a safe and well-defined pathway to the shopping centre entry,” the town planning report reads.
At present, there are 31 stores in Australia and seven of which are in Queensland. But this one in Chermside, if approved, would be the first 24/7 outlet for the renowned brand in QLD. The first Krispy Kreme outside the United States was also established in Australia way back in 2003 at Penrith.
