logan city council is exploring options to redevelop the kingston butter factory as a major cultural asset for the city of Logan
Following the decision to pursue a different direction for the Logan Innovation Hub, Council now plans to redevelop the historic Kingston Butter Factory building in the context of creating a cultural and entertainment precinct at the 14-hectare site.
The rest of the Kingston Butter Factory Precinct Redevelopment Project is continuing as planned, including creating the city’s largest outdoor event space.
In the short term, Council will continue with plans for a much-needed general clean-up of the butter factory building. Exploratory work has also identified a number of age-related issues that require specialist attention. The upgrade work was due to be undertaken regardless of the building’s use.
A final decision around the building’s use as a cultural facility will be made in the context of Council’s Community Infrastructure Strategy, Arts, Culture and Heritage Strategy, and Destination Management Plan, and include an opportunity for the community to have a say.
It will complement Council’s plans for Creative HQ, a creative and cultural hub planned for the Council-owned facility in Wilbur St, Logan Central, beside the Logan Central Library.
