More than 30 retail stores have opened following the completion of the second stage of the expansion, including Cotton On, Forever New, Lorna Jane, Sunburn and Colette, doubling the centre’s previous fashion offering.
The town centre, which offers free wi-fi, also now includes an array of major chain stores including Big W, Coles, Woolworths, Aldi and a large new format Target store.
Michael Hill’s Emma & Roe is expected to open in early May.
Federal, state and local government representatives officially opened the stage two expansion on Friday April 29.
Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz, Mirvac’s CEO and managing director, said the expansion has almost doubled the footprint of the centre which is now one of the top ten largest shopping centres in the state.
The carpark of the town centre, which is located adjacent to Springfield Central Station, has also been expanded and can now accommodate about 3000 cars and includes a bus interchange.
The expansion also delivered a new entertainment destination, the Event Cinema Complex which includes Gold Class and VMAX, and dining experience. Dining options in the centre now include the Beach House Bar and Grill and Guzman Y Gomez, Nando’s and Grill’d, Ohayo Sushi and Chocolateria San Churro, among others.
“The centre will provide over 165 specialty stores to match its lifestyle and leisure activity focus as a community hub as well as delivering the convenience and connectivity to the community of south-west Brisbane and the Ipswich region,” said Susan MacDonald, Mirvac’s head of Retail.
