Internationals land at Macquarie
AMP Capital has unveiled the final stage of Macquarie Centre’s $440 million redevelopment, featuring a new two level fashion galleria and more than 100 new stores including the first new David Jones to open in Sydney in seven years.
Macquarie Centre is also now home to the most large format international high street fashion brands of any Australian shopping centre.

The new centre features an Australian first 21 metre curved digital screen, which dominates the new Fresh Food Market ceiling and delivers innovative, creative, ambient content and sound.
The centre also features a premium dining and café offering, and premium services such as valet parking and free Wi-Fi throughout the centre. There are also more than 5000 parking spaces, the most offered by any shopping centre in Sydney.
“We wanted to create a customised shopping experience with unique, international and aspirational brands, an enhanced leisure offer and a social hub for dining and entertainment,’ Bryan Hynes, MD of AMP Capital Shopping Centres, said.
“By focusing on crafting interactive experiences – something we do at all our shopping centres – we have transformed Macquarie Centre into a leading contemporary urban centre, which is a great outcome for customers, retailers and investors.”
