Moby Vic’s to see major upgrades

By Kirra Livingstone

COOCHIN Creek’s iconic ‘Moby Vic’s’ service station off Bruce Highway will see huge developments, following a two-year development application approved early this year.
The MCU application to the Sunshine Coast Council was originally submitted by Project Urban on December 22, 2022.
Plans include: “the demolition of the existing service station and mechanics workshop currently located on the site, and the construction of a new service station and multiple new tenancies including truck parking and manoeuvring areas,” Project Urban said in their development application.
The new service station will include eight double-sided car fuel pumps, three truck fuel pumps, and three food and drink outlets with double-lane drive-thru facilities.
According to the development plans, the food and drink outlets which will be going in include a Starbucks, KFC, and Red Rooster.
The existing McDonald’s and Hungry Jack’s will remain at the service station. After a few years of back and forth between Project Urban, De Luca Corporation, and the Sunshine Coast Council, the decision was finalised on January 12 2024.
The council made an information request on 16 January 2023, which was completed on January 30, 2023. The application’s decision was scheduled for August 28 2023; however, it was extended three times up until early January this year.
Project Urban and the Sunshine Coast Council were both contacted for comment.
