Mandurah Forum completes first stage of $350m redevelopment
Mandurah Forum has unveiled the first stage of its $350 million redevelopment in Western Australia’s growing Peel region.
Retail landlord Vicinity Centres and ISPT said the first major retail stage, has opened on budget, on schedule and shops are now fully leased. This includes a new Target store, a fresh food market hall and over 60 specialty stores.
The expanded centre also has the latest format Kmart, a new-look market style Coles, a Big W and Woolworths.
Angus McNaughton, CEO and managing director of Vicinity Centres, said the new Mandurah Forum has been designed to provide the “best everyday shopping experience for the Peel region,” which is now Perth’s second biggest city.
The redevelopment of Mandurah Forum has been under construction for just over a year and it is estimated that the project is creating 1,000 jobs throughout construction and more than 700 ongoing retail, hospitality and service jobs.
Sam Curry, general manager of Retail Services from ISPT, said the project has been designed to capitalise on the growing Peel community which is one of Australia’s fastest growing catchments with 2.8 per cent population growth per annum forecast between now and 2030 and the millions of visitors and day trippers who travel to the tourist region each year.
The redevelopment includes over 1,600 car spaces and park assist technology, new family friendly facilities and free WiFi.
The $350 million transformation of Mandurah Forum will be complete in early 2018 when the centre welcomes Western Australia’s first next generation David Jones store, a new fashion mall, casual dining precinct designed around a water oasis and a contemporary food court with an indoor-outdoor play area.
