Gold Coast in Australia will soon be bustling social and shopping destination, after the development of new centre is done. Retail landlord, Scentre Group, together with it’s partner QICGRE (QIC Global Real Estate), have begun work on the $470 million development of Westfield Coomera in this city.
The co-owners said the shopping centre will be built just next to Coomera Train Station and 500m from the M1 and will feature 140 speciality shops. Woolworths, Coles, Kmart, Target and a huge cinema will be some of the main tenants in the new mall.
The shopping centre is said to emerge in a promising region full of potential to become top entertaining area for the city’s northern part. Some of the feature will include a bright alfresco dining precinct which will be open alongside a fashion retailer area.
The 59,000 sqm site off Foxwell Road will be transformed into an area full of restaurants, shops and interesting features for the youngest visitors, including large open green spaces for kids to play.
This is the first Westfield ‘greenfield’ development in more than a decade and will form part of the longer-term Coomera Town Centre project that will encompass a wide range of amenities for the local region, said Greg Miles, Scentre Group’s chief operating officer.
Miles also said he hopes the new mall will meet the needs of all the residents of this growing region. The future town centre will include community space, commercial, residential and mixed use elements, which will complement the retail and lifestyle destination.
Our shared vision is to deliver a development that reflects the values and aspirations of the region, said Steven Leigh, managing director of QIC Global Real Estate.
The project will be completed by the end of next year, and by then, almost 7500 people will be given job opportunities, while the work is in progress.
Construction is well-advanced and it is said by managing team the Grand opening is expected soon after the end of the Commonwealth Games in 2018.
