The vacant land located at 32 Old Calder Highway Diggers Rest has recently been sold and the purchaser intends to develop the land and maximise its full potential.
The area is situated on the eastern side of the Old Calder Highway, approximately 140 metres north of the railway crossing.
In May 2009, the land was rezoned from residential to mixed use.
It’s understood that a full-line supermarket is proposed to be built in the developing Bloomdale Estate.
However, this site offers some exceptional opportunities for Diggers Rest especially given its within close proximity to the railway station.
Some of the possible options for the land could include, a supermarket, speciality retail shops, food services, speciality medical facilities, childcare facilities and residential development.
Development of this site should help to deliver much needed retail and community services to the township.
The mixed use nature of the land may help to incorporate some “small office – home office” style urban dwellings, which could attract some localised employment opportunities for residents.
Hopefully, maximising the potential of the mixed use will contribute toward the overall economic sustainability of the township.
The establishment of Houdini’s Café e Cucina is testament to the ability to attract new business from beyond the 3427 postcode.
