If you haven’t had a Chinese meal from this place you most certainly have driven past this iconic building in Enoggera.

Buts a new lease of life is to be breathed into the location as a development application has been lodged for a Guzman Y Gomez Restaurant with drive through, located on the corner of 340 Wardell Street & 223 Samford Road, Enoggera.

340-Wardell-Street-223-Samford-Road-EnoggeraDesigned by Hodge Collard Preston Architects, the proposal seeks a stand alone Food and Drink Outlet building that will establish a Guzman Y Gomez Restaurant, outdoor dining and drive through. The proposed building is set back from the intersection and retains the general location of the vehicle driveway and pedestrian connection from Wardell Street.

The redevelopment will remove the existing Lotus Room Chinese Restaurant, car park, driveway and structures to facilitate the proposal. Utilising the adjoining vacant land, the large site will provide an improved vegetated layout that will include acoustic fencing along the boundaries.
