The proposed major redevelopment and expansion of Galleria at Morley has been approved by the Metro Central Development Assessment Panel and the City of Bayswater, according to Vicinity Centres and Perron Group.
Currently anchored by major retailers Myer, Kmart, Target, Coles and Woolworths, the proposed Galleria transformational development will increase the centre retail floor space from approximately 74000sqm to around 126000sqm.
The centre’s makeover will include additional specialty stores targeting international brands, Australian designers and fashion stores, as well as offering the latest discount department store and supermarket concepts.
The proposed redevelopment will feature a new restaurant and casual dining precinct, an innovative new gourmet fresh food market hall and a dining court.
“Receiving this approval for our proposal is a significant milestone bringing us closer to commencing the evolution of Galleria,” said Stephen Beer, Vicinity Centres’ director of development.
“We continue to work through a number of pre-conditions for the development, which will include investment approvals from the boards of both Vicinity Centres and Perron Group,” Beer said.
The approved plans also include a new leisure and entertainment zone, the establishment of a town square opening onto Bishop Street, an urban plaza to Russell Street along with additional multideck parking.
“We are excited to be part of the development of Galleria into what we believe will be Perth’s pre-eminent community and shopping destination,” said Ross Robertson, Perron Group CEO.
