The complex will include food and drink outlets, retail shops on the ground level, two levels of car parking, top-level penthouses a rooftop pool deck and a tennis court.

Last week developer Brookport Holdings applied to council for a development permit for a sales office on the site of 12 Anzac Parade, where the holiday units and art gallery is.

It would be for the display of the units for sale and is expected to appeal to pedestrian traffic.

The office would be temporary and would be removed once construction of the development began.

The development is expected to take 12 to 18 months to build.
