McDonald's has lodged a development application to take over the Jo-Jo's restaurant site on Queen Street with preliminary approval sought for building works.
The 3 storey McDonald's restaurant on 903 sqm will have capacity for hundreds of people and, as part of the development, McDonald's is required to make a public art contribution.
The proposed development is for a retrofit of the existing restaurant tenancy, and will not result in any increases in building footprint, GFA or height. McDonald’s has obtained a State Heritage Exemption Certificate to carry out works to the balcony over Burnett Lane.
While the internal retrofit of the tenancy is subject to self-assessment, and therefore does not form part of the application, assessable components of development are proposed. These works are for alterations to the façade of a building fronting the Queen Street Mall, and comprise:
The site is located within the entertainment precinct's Principal Centre and is therefore able to accommodate unlimited hours of operation.
