Toombul launches revitalised dining precinct Upstairs

Karrinyup opens doors to new-look Fashion Loop

The first section of Karrinyup Shopping Centre’s redevelopment will be unveiled on November 21.

The launch of the first section, the new-look Fashion Loop at Karrinyup, will kick off with a four-day fashion and beauty event which will be attended by fashion icon Elle Ferguson. 

Tim Richards, Karrinyup Shopping Centre manager, said the launch is an exciting milestone in the shopping centre’s major redevelopment and said he was thrilled to be welcoming Elle Ferguson to the centre as part of the celebrations.

“We hope customers will enjoy discovering the new retailers, revamped locations for existing stores and all the activities we have planned, this is just a small taste of the exciting things to come as the centre continues to evolve,” Richards said.

The launch will include a number of installations, free pop-up activities, fashion experiences and in-store offers.

The centre will also open its new multi-deck car park with 700 bays and a parking guidance system as well as a refurbishment of Australian retailer Big W. The opening of the first section of the Fashion Loop is the first unveiling of the reimagined centre, with the entire development on target to be completed at the end of 2021.

Upon completion, the centre will offer approximately 290 specialty stores.

Toombul gets revitalised dining precinct

Mirvac Retail has launched its new dining and entertainment precinct at Brisbane’s iconic shopping centre Toombul.

Upstairs, the retail landlord’s $43 million investment, covers 4500sqm and transforms the historic 51-year-old centre into a revitalised urban precinct.

This summer, Upstairs will feature 10 new dining offers, sourcing both existing Brisbane operators and new-to-Queensland concepts. Offers include Dapple + Waver, Niku Ramen, Little Red Dumpling, Sushi HYO, Espresso Max, II Gancio, Hello Harry, Jackpot Dining and Phat Elephant along with perennial favourite Max Brenner.

The new precinct’s décor includes a colour-changing neon playground complete with swings and slides, street-art murals, industrial indoor and outdoor spaces wrapped around a feature fountain.

AMP’s Marrickville goes green

Marrickville Metro unveiled its new one-stop-drop recycling wall during the National Recycling Week last week.

The AMP-managed centre has put up the wall to make it easier for Australians who want to recycle difficult items, such as beauty packaging, soft plastics, batteries, mobile phones and coffee capsules. 

The new #MetroRecycleWall also includes an area that allows customers to borrow a reusable bag to do their shopping. Once done, they can return the bag to the recycling wall for other customers to use.

According to AMP Capital, the #MetroRecycleWall is part of the centre’s campaign to support the community to go greener.
