Stage one of the $500 million redevelopment of Toowoomba’s Grand Central Shopping Centre has been opened.

Upon completion of the two-level retail galleria precinct in 2017 a walkway will link the existing centre across the railway line.

It will feature Toowoomba's first H&M store.

Buchan Group Director Gerry Holmes said the galleria was carefully crafted to maximise retail sightlines and visual amenity, enhancing the shopping experience.

Critical to the success of any retail development is its master plan. While remaining flexible, this master plan embodies sound retail planning principles, placement of major tenants, clear pedestrian access, appropriate carparking and circulation, and relevant goods servicing provisions,” he said.

The opening marks a 20-year milestone for The Buchan Group, which has worked on all stages of the centre, from its concept design and 1996 opening, to master planning the current redevelopment for QIC during the past ten years.”
