CONSTRUCTION of the Woolworth's complex at Cabarita has come a long way since Mainbrace Constructions and Tweed Coast Demolition began clearing the decks in February.

For many months, it was hard to see the progress as the underground layers were concentrated on, with locals peeking through the fencing to gain a view of the work.

But in the last two weeks, pillars have appeared that indicate the construction of the ground level.

"It's really starting to take shape," said Cabarita resident Julie Cross.

The old post office, Bogangar Auto care centre, a pizza shop and the Cabarita Beach Motel were targeted for demolition to make way for the Department of Planning-approved three-storey development.

The amalgamated 5485sq m property with street frontage to Tweed Coast Road and Hastings Road includes a Woolworths store to be housed in a 2300sq m tenancy, which includes a 200sq m mezzanine office level, and the remaining 1100sq m of retail space will be spread across up to 17 tenancies.

Stockwell development manager Sharon Waddell said the specialty retail component would include a broad mix of businesses.

"The retail component will be retained by Stockwell and leased out," she said.

The project will have parking for 204 vehicles.

Two lifts will provide access from the basement to the floors aboveMs Waddell said the 4m-high grade difference from the front of the property meant the development would have to be stepped from two to three levels.

The Tweed Coast Road frontage is designed to allow the retail component to spill out on to the streetscape with alfresco dining.The shops will have a glass facade with easy access off the street.

There will also be a separate access from the basement driveway on Hastings Road to the loading dock for the Woolworths tenancy.

A tunnel under the development will allow vehicle and pedestrian access for nearby properties.
