Everton Plaza awarded GOLD at
Design Australia Awards!
The vision for Everton Plaza, located in Brisbane's North at Everton Park, was

Group embraced the strong trading small retailers who were part of the fabric of the local community and their faithful
Rather than engaging an architect or urban planner, Reds Group approached COMUNiTI to bring their vision for the revitalization of the tired
suburb shopping centre into a thriving local hub. Leveraging COMUNiTI’s ability to strategically blend business goals with human experience,
to design a place that fosters the creation of community. Our brief was to create an innovative new retail and dining precinct that is
designed to support local business and facilitate human connection.
Retaining the centre’s original ground work and the site’s heritage, we reconfigured how the tenancies addressed the rear service laneway
transforming it into a bustling food and beverage laneway. This solution created a place for the community to come together, encourage
engagement and support local businesses.
We are extremely proud that the COMUNiTI
were entrusted by Reds Group to bring its vision to life and support the wider team in to creating the final outcome. Collective we were
able to successfully contribute to a better-performing local economy and happier, healthier, more connected community.
Huge congratulations to Jason Blair, Reds Group, Studio Arkitecture & Hoyne on the success of the project, we are excited to see it
continue to evolve!
