transformation of Griffith Road
into Lavington's business heart
is about to start with a six-storey
office block, several new shops
and a large medical centre.
Zauner Group Investments, now building 26
projects from Sydney to Mildura, is ready to go
ahead with a $10 million six-storey building for
its new corporate headquarters and which it
hopes will also house a new public library.
Stage 1 will convert the former Betta Electrical
store between Wagga Road and Griffith Road to
six shops with a car park for 125 cars.
Stage 2 is an office block on Griffith Road,
requiring demolition of the present Zauner
offices and other buildings the company has
bought between Griffith and Wagga roads.
Leffler Simes Architects, which designed
the $33 million Gardens Medical Centre and
a recent upgrade of Centro Lavington has
designed both the shops development and
the office block, placing them in a L-shape
Zauner managing director Garry Zauner said
that the final design of the building was being
refined but it would look broadly like the image
Several modifications have been made since
the concept was first revealed by The Border
Mail in 2008.
Zauner intends spending $500,000 on the
Betta Electrical store and car park, according
to the development application submitted by
James Laycock's Blueprint Planning.
A rooftop training centre with conference-type
facilities will form level six of the building.
Mr Zauner said he was looking forward to
starting the office block project on a site that his
family had occupied for 50 years.
"Our proposals and the medical centre (in
the former Landmark building) next door will
enhance this part of Lavington,'' he said.
Meanwhile, he awaits a city council decision
on the library's relocation.
In April, councillors endorsed Zauner as the
preferred proponent but ordered a cost-benefit
analysis which is yet to be completed.
This will look at the merits of a lease or strata title
arrangement and what it would cost to expand the
present library or build somewhere else.
The council has not set a time frame for a final

for the building on Griffith
Road, with new shops in a
development alongside it.
