THE first stage of the $58 million redevelopment of Secret Harbour Shopping Centre is progressing on time, with the completion of internal mall works.
The newly refurbished and expanded Woolworths supermarket is on track to open next month.
The project works started in February and will deliver a major redevelopment of the existing centre, as well as the introduction of two new major retailers Coles and Aldi, a new external dining precinct and an array of specialty retailers.
Tiling and refurbishment works within the existing centre have been completed and new sections of the carpark have been opened. Carpark shade sails will be installed at the Woolworths end of the centre in November.
Works continue to the front entry of the centre, including the construction of a new entry statement and tiling, also set for completion in late November.
The new McDonalds restaurant is now open, while The Lucky Charm is scheduled to open next month. Until The Lucky Charm opens, a temporary Lotto Kiosk continues to trade in the centre.
A new-look Australia Post will open in late 2016 and Secret Harbour Fish n Chips is currently completing refurbishment works.
At completion, new specialty retailers to Secret Harbour Shopping Centre will include Red Dot, Rockmans, Mister Minit, Smokemart & GiftBox, Sushi Master, Sky Tree Massage, Secret Harbour Medical Centre, and Iconic Nails will return to the centre.
Meanwhile, Dome and Dancin Wok will open in the new casual dining precinct along Oasis Drive, with additional new retailers to be announced soon.
Charter Hall’s development manager Ben Lourey said he was pleased to see the development works progressing to schedule and he looked forward to revealing a new-look Secret Harbour shopping centre in early 2017.
At completion, Secret Harbour Shopping Centre will include 30 new specialty stores, a new casual dining precinct along Oasis Drive, three full-ine supermarkets in one location, outdoor playgrounds, state-of-the-art amenities, parent’s room and free WiFi.
