Here’s a quick summary of what we’ve found out. Do you know anything we don’t? Drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Palais (or should we call it the The Palais) development is very close to being finished. ThinkTank architects have moved into a space on the first floor and a Coffee Club (or is that a The Coffee Club??) will be opening on the ground floor. More on The Coffee Club soon.
Of the 26 residential units in the development, 14 have already been sold and 12 are still available (although two have current expressions of interest). The units that are still available range from $530,000 (2 bed) to $660,000 (2 bed + study) in price (see photos below)
Vince and Nicole who used to run Artigiano (Moroccan made homewares) in Bay Terrace have opened up Bohai & Co in Edith Street in the little shop where Indie Vibes used to be. Check them out.
If you are an op shop shopper you will be delighted to know that the old Endeavour shop in Bay Terrace will shortly reopen as a Save the Children op shop. We don’t know exactly when but expect it to open pretty soon.
Chestnut Street will be the site of a new five level building due to start construction soon. It will be called ‘high point’ and is being developed by Niclin Group, major sponsors of the Wynnum Seafood Festival to be held in October.
Florence Street is busy cementing its reputation as the trendy end of town and featured recently in the Sunday Mail (Sunday 10th July). Wendy Hughes, writer for the Food-Breakfast Review section visited Florence Street Coffee and tried their breakfast menu. While she was there she also popped into the Little Gnome book/coffee shop and interior design shop Cultivate Design Co.
