WITH its freshly brewed coffees, shiny new gym equipment and pleasant restaurant settings, the newly-refurbished business centre on Bell St has emerged a commercial success for Chinchilla.

In the coming months another three businesses will commence operation in the old neighbouring buildings, with Jamaica Blue trading as of last week and Max Fitness still only a few months old.

Local developer Lloyd Beasley said he and wife Kay were excited to see their project eventuate into an active hive of business and thanked those engaged to make it happen.

"Revamping the 50 year old building has changed it into an attractive and modern commercial precinct which has transformed that area of the town," Mr Beasley said.

"We were very impressed with Eden Zerbst as the builder and his professional and competent team and found the building designers, Struxi Design of Toowoomba, very helpful."

A new Thai restaurant is set to spice things up in the second shop front, while Transfield Services and Halum Pty Ltd will soon occupy the second floor office spaces.

The development will eventually provide work for dozens people, as well as the tradesmen employed throughout the renovation.

At the official opening of Jamaica Blue on Saturday Western Downs mayor Ray Brown said he was pleased to see such prosperous business expansion in Chinchilla.

"This whole facility is a wonderful commitment to the CBD area and it shows an enormous confidence that the Chinchilla community has got at the moment," Cr Brown said.
