Eastern Creek Quarter wants to have street food so good that it will be the most talked-about place in Western Sydney, said Tim Moore, the general manager of retail leasing for Frasers Property Australia.
“We’re not after one-size-fits-all operators,” said Moore. “We’re looking for operators whose vision is aligned with ours, and we look forward to discovering the new food concepts and tenancy designs,” he said.
He said that with Eastern Creek, Frasers Property is focused on delivering a super-neighbourhood centre with a supermarket, a range of specialty stores and services, a children’s play area, and other community amenities.
Woolworths has been secured as the anchor tenant, with a new full-line 3800sqm supermarket and BWS liquor store. A pharmacy, gym, childcare centre and medical centre are also expected to be among the first tenants, with stage one expected to be open in late 2019.
Eastern Creek Quarter will serve a large and growing catchment and will be within a 15-minute drive for 330,000 people and a 30-minute drive for 1.2 million people, said Moore.
The street-food lane precinct will set the centre apart, and Frasers Property is looking for bold, exciting and, above all, delicious retail
concepts to detail their vision. The lane will include six to eight tenancies approximately 30sqm to 40sqm in size, adjacent to an
alfresco entertaining deck, which could potentially be used for events and functions.
Frasers Property is targeting a 6 Star Green Star rating for Eastern Creek Quarter and the design will respond to its location adjacent
to Western Sydney Parklands by integrating facilities and amenities that connect people with the natural bushland. Community gardens and public barbecues will create places to socialise.
Eastern Creek Quarter is hoping to become a new “day out” location for Western Sydney residents and visitors. It will also
assimilate with the different local landmarks surrounding it, including Eastern Creek Raceway, Eastern Road Sports Precinct and the new Sydney Zoo in Bungarribee Park.
