Work has started on a $3.5 million project in Kingaroy by Queensland developer De Luca Corporation, the company which brought Bunnings to the South Burnett.
The large format retail project is going ahead near Bunnings on the southern side of town.
The major tenant will be PETstock, a national pet goods retailer which operates stores in six States.
“I’m excited for the opportunity this project brings, as it provides additional services and jobs to the area,” De Luca Corporation founder and managing director Nic De Luca said.
The corporation says it aims to employ as many local residents as possible during the development and use many local material suppliers.
In addition to Pet Stock, a service auto operator may take up the balance of the new building.
This project is expected to completed by May.
De Luca Corporation also has plans for a small-scale residential development on the land to the rear of the site.
“The intent of the small-scale residential development is to help bridge Kingaroy’s lack of affordable housing,” Mr De Luca said.
De Luca is a major Queensland developer of industrial, commercial, large format retail, fast food, fuel, bulky goods, sporting, education, residential, mining and childcare projects.
Including the Bunnings project, the corporation has bought close to $20 million worth of investment to the South Burnett region.
