Did you know that there could soon be a new Starbucks stand-alone drive-thru cafe at the Ampol servo on Milton Road in Toowong?
TfA Project Group, on behalf of Ampol, has submitted plans to upgrade the servo, located at 581 Milton Road, Toowong. The 2,817sqm site is currently used as a service station with supporting workshops, but with the recently lodged proposal, it could be transformed into a service station with food and drink outlets.
The coffee shop, to be located at the northern boundary of the site, will only be 78sqm and will feature a drive-thru.
The proposal also includes the removal of the existing building and associated structures to provide for the construction of a modern service station with a new 135 sqm pay point retail building.
Also designed by the TfA Project Group, the servo will have a double drive-thru with the ability to stack 14 vehicles for the food and drink outlet, along with 11 car parks and a loading bay and service yard.
“The development site will incorporate new areas of landscaping and a higher quality of built form and modern design, which will enhance the overall appearance of the site,” planners at TfA Project Group stated.
“The modern convenience offers within both the service station building and attached food and drink will better service the local community needs of surrounding businesses,” planning documents read.
If approved, the new servo will operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
At present, there are only six Starbucks stores in Brisbane: South Brisbane, Myer Centre at Queen St, Grey St at South Bank, Festival Towers, Edward St, and one at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Woolloongabba.
