Townsville City Council has approved a $30 million shopping centre development on Riverway Drive in Rassmussen.
The Riverway Plaza development will support up to 200 jobs during construction, according to planning and development committee chair Cr Les Walker.
He said the project was a vote of confidence in the future of our economy.
“Businesses are showing faith in the Townsville economy and opening up their chequebooks to invest and create local jobs,” Cr Walker said.
“Construction is expected to start later this year or early next year, with plenty of job opportunities for locals.”
The application was code assessable and did not require public notification.
