THE final stage of Mandurah Forum’s $350 million redevelopment will be finished early next year.

Centre manager Jacqueline McKenzie said the transformation, which has nearly doubled the size of Mandurah Forum, is on schedule with building works currently focused on the new David Jones mall, the alfresco dining precinct complete with a water oasis and the new food court with indoor-outdoor playground facilities.

“The buzz of construction continues with our team of builders and local tradespeople working hard to create the new-look Mandurah Forum,” she said.

A child-friendly food court is taking shape and its centrepiece, Mandurah Forum’s new playground, will have a coastal theme celebrating the best of the Mandurah’s location and flora and fauna.

“We can’t wait to give our growing local community and visitors to the Peel region a new destination where they can relax, shop, feast and connect,” Ms McKenzie added.

The tranquil water oasis in the alfresco dining precinct is underway and soon tilers will be onsite and the decks will be under construction next month.

In the new David Jones mall, the stores are close to being complete ready for brands and retailers to start fitting out in the new year and the diamond designed roof seen throughout the centre is on track to be complete before Christmas.

 

“The transformed Mandurah Forum promises to change both the region’s retail and social scene by offering a new hub that the local community and holidaymakers can enjoy both day and night and we can’t wait to open our doors next year,” Ms McKenzie said.
