Capalaba Town Centre Revitalisation Project

Capabala Revitalisation Project

Redland City Council, in partnership with subsidiary company Redland Investment Corporation (RIC), is delivering an exciting multimillion revitalisation of a 1.55 hectare site in the heart of Capalaba.

The Capalaba Revitalisation Project will transform the area behind Capalaba Central Shopping Centre into the urban heart of Capalaba.

In October 2022 Council entered into a development agreement with RIC and Shayher Group to take the next steps in delivering the transformation.

The agreement will see delivery of a $250 million project that incorporates a commercial precinct and exemplar public spaces including community assets such as a new library, customer service centre, arts centre and community hall.

The project will accommodate an employment hub, supported by an innovative public realm a diverse mix of dining, retail and entertainment uses to create a day/night economy and bring much-needed infrastructure to improve the connectivity.

Preferred development partner Shayher Group have completed the preliminary approval application for the master plan and development permit for the first stage (Council Library) of this exciting project. The Master Plan for the Capalaba Town Centre Revitalisation Project will deliver:

  • Enhancements to the entertainment and restaurant precinct, including a village green with a large screen
  • Retail and mixed use residential and commercial areas
  • An exciting new library building, customer service centre and community hall

Following assessment of the applications, if approved, the next steps will include further development permits for the remaining stages and commencement of construction for the first stage.

In 2010 Council adopted the Capalaba Centre Master Plan that identified key areas of need at Capalaba, which holds tremendous potential as the entry into Redlands Coast.

To implement Council’s vision, RIC held an expression of interest campaign that secured Shayher Group to deliver this innovative and landmark development that will support the revitalisation of Capalaba.
