To mark the commencement of the construction phase, a sod turning event was held on site last Friday.
A total investment of $58 million will be made to deliver a major redevelopment of the existing centre. It will feature the expansion of the existing Woolworths store, the introduction of two new major retailers, Coles and Aldi, and an array of specialty retailers.
Charter Hall Retail REIT fund manager Scott Dundas said the milestone was an important commitment to the centre and the community.
“Today’s milestone will deliver a significant investment in the Secret Harbour community,” he said.
“We are proud to be investing into the centre to deliver a more convenient, vibrant and enjoyable shopping experience for the community.”
Doric has been awarded the building contract to redevelop the shopping centre.
The shopping centre is expected to open in about 12 months.
