Rumours are flying that hardware giant Bunnings has bought highway frontage in Kingaroy which was to have been the site of a multi-million dollar motel development.
That project fell over in late 2015 after initial earthworks had been completed.
On Tuesday, southburnett.com.au spoke to the real estate agents handling the sale of the land who confirmed that the block, which fronts the D’Aguilar Highway, was under contract.
They would not confirm who the interested party was, only to say that it was not a motel development.
No development application has been lodged as yet with the South Burnett Regional Council.
Kingaroy developer Kevin Taylor said he had also heard that Bunnings had bought the motel site.
Bunnings General Manager (Property) Andrew Marks said Kingaroy “remained an area of interest for Bunnings and we would consider opening a store there in the future if the right opportunity became available”.
