Brisbane City Council has approved the proposed new supermarket for Annerley on Ipswich Road, which comes with local support and pent-up demand. The POWE Team has been working with Capital Transactions to design a carefully considered response to the site context, including the heritage-listed Glassworx on the corner.
Verandas on the supermarket rear wall and arch frieze accents between structural elements break down the façade mass and reflect the local vernacular, along with layered planting and complementary coloured glass.
In a year like no other, where social contact was heavily sanitised and face to face meetings were reduced to Zoom and Teams, the best thing we could do was to bring everyone together, celebrate getting through this difficult year together and importantly, say:
Thank you to everyone for your determination, tenacity and resilience while we’ve navigated through all this uncertainty. For your understanding and patience during the lockdown, when we all worked remotely and did our best to seamlessly deliver your projects, we say thank you.
To our new clients for showing faith in us, to our long term clients for your support and loyalty, and to everyone for keeping us informed and sharing your thoughts and opinions during unpredictable times; thank you. Thank you for understanding how important cashflow is to a business of our size. And thank you for checking in on us from time to time just to see if we were doing OK. It meant a lot and reminded us that:
we are all in this together
The latest economic figures suggest we are on the road to recovery and we’re excitedly looking forward to a positive start for 2021.

The facility provides a valuable service to the surrounding Eden’s Crossing residential catchment and will soon be supported with the imminent opening of a new 7-Eleven service station and DA approved McDonald’s restaurant.
When complete, the development will provide what we believe is a quality example of horizontal mixed-use development servicing a local residential community.
