A major $50-million refurbishment of the existing Toowong Village Shopping Centre has put Toowong back on Brisbane’s retail map with the shopping centre offering 32,895 sqm of shopping space and a new Sherwood Road restaurant precinct. 

The Toowong Village, prior to the transformation, had largely remained in its original condition since the centre opened in 1986. 

Australasian design firm The Buchan Group was appointed by Retail First to provide architectural, interior and graphic design services to the project. This included new finishes throughout the complex, a reconfigured retail plan, new centre entry statements and an external restaurant precinct. 

The reconfigured retail layout had improved sightlines and pedestrian circulation flow, said Buchan Group senior associate Anthony Tai.

“The team’s brief was to complete an internal revamp of the centre and to create a more lively ‘street presence’ for the centre externally,” he said.

“By activating the previously blank façade of the shopping centre with a new restaurant precinct, and by increasing the amount of casual dining options on offer for nearby apartment dwellers, the centre has been urbanised and integrated into the existing Sherwood Road streetscape."
