Plans Lodged for Indoor Entertainment Area at Orion Springfield Central

Orion Springfield Central

An indoor entertainment precinct featuring ten pin bowling lanes will soon be built at Orion Springfield Central should a development application be approved.

The proposal is seeking to include a laser tag arena, a party room and arcade gaming area. It will also include an office space and a prize collection area.

To facilitate the construction, the applicant will remove 78 car parking spaces adjacent to the new building and will temporarily pull out existing shade sails in the car park near Target.

Lodged by Mirvac in May 2019, the 1232-sqm indoor entertainment area will serve as an extension to the current centre and will be constructed in three stages.

The first stage will involve closing the southern car park and demolition works, whilst Stage 2 will be for construction of a reconfigured car park and tenancy structures.

The final stage will be dedicated for reopening of the southern car park and tenancy fit-outs. Mirvac also lodged an application with the Ipswich City Council for 126 additional car parking spaces off Sirius Drive.

If given the green light, this entertainment area will greatly please a number of locals who missed tenpin bowling since the Ipswich Tenpin at Bundamba was destroyed in the floods of January 2011.

The new entertainment precinct will be built near the existing Target loading dock in the centre’s southern carpark.
