Fresh off the announcement of an entertainment venue and world-class festival site, The Comiskey Group share the first details of their latest community-shaping venture. The team behind Sandstone Point Hotel and Eatons Hill Hotel today announce the development of the Dakabin Hotel, shopping centre, and boutique village across 3.75ha of land in the Moreton Bay suburb of Dakabin.
With construction set to commence in early 2023, the development will sit adjacent to Alma and Old Gympie Road. Dakabin will be transformed for residents, with a 2,500sqm shopping centre, a boutique village with a swathe of new stores, including cafes and a gym.
For residents looking for a quick bite, there will be a Guzman Y Gomez and KFC drive thru as well as a NightOwl service station for those late night last-minute necessities.
Director Rob Comiskey hopes the community will be excited to see more dining options closer to home.
“We are focusing on the food, looking to support locally grown produce where possible and deliver the unexpected to diners. It’s going to be a unique hotel in offering and design, we’re meeting with architects to ensure it makes a statement,” said Rob.
The development will expand access to shops and services for the residents of Dakabin and surrounds, as well as a boost to employment opportunities.
“Dakabin Hotel itself will employ over 50 staff across both full-time and casual positions, and the overall centre should see 250 job opportunities,” said Rob.
Located off the Bruce Highway next to Narangba, The Comiskey Group extend their offerings to the community with the Dakabin Hotel. There will be something for everyone with the development of a new restaurant, bar, and gaming room and the kids will be kept occupied in the playground and large outdoor area.
The Dakabin Hotel is intended to elevate the ordinary ‘pub’ experience, with exclusive food offerings in the works. The Comiskey Group had their eyes on the property for years, Director Rob Comiskey was excited when it went to market.
“The drawcard really was the site’s corner position on two major roads, as well as its close proximity to North Lakes. The high-volume location is a convenient place for the community to come, allowing for great exposure of our tenants. We are always on the hunt for opportunities in high growth areas and this was definitely one we couldn’t let pass us by,” said Rob.
The announcement arrives off the back of a major hotel, festival site, and entertainment venue by the Comiskey Group. The Sunshine Coast’s Aura Community is a $35 million development which is set to be the Sunshine Coast’s largest hotel and music venue. The group’s portfolio will double in size over the next few years. The Comiskey Group’s Dakabin Hotel and Shopping Centre joins the many world-class projects announced from the group in 2022.
