Ipswich Central Redevelopment Committee Chairperson Councillor Marnie Doyle said the next 12 months promised exciting times for residents and retailers.
“So much will come to fruition this year as Nicholas Street Precinct and Ipswich Central enjoy the road to refurbishment and we finalise some of our biggest projects,” Cr Doyle said.
“The wait will be well worth it as the iconic century-old hotel opens its doors again and the rebuilt cinema opens the curtains on a whole new era of movie magic.
“And we have high hopes for many new businesses joining those who have made Nicholas Street Precinct and Tulmur Place their home over the past year.”
Cr Doyle said council was currently in confidential discussions with some well-known and loved market leaders and was confident contracts would be signed in the coming months.
“We have recently seen the addition of Austhetica Oasis and Sofia Nails, joining Terry White Chemist in Tulmur Walk,” Cr Doyle said.
