APP is involved in a number of major retail projects around the country that have recently achieved major project milestones.
Pacific Werribee Shopping Centre
The latest major stage of Pacific Werribee's landmark $370M development has now opened for trade. This stage includes the western end of the mall that will integrate the new Target and Myer stores into the existing centre. This stage, in conjunction with the previously opened Urban Diner precinct, now represents approximately the half-way mark in the development.
This most recent milestone includes a new flagship Target store, built to Target’s new design standard, as well as 40 new specialty retail stores, and new multi-deck car parking.
APP has been involved in the Pacific Werribee Development since 2013, initially providing project management, design management and superintendency services through the design and contractor procurement phases, as well as managing an early works package consisting of the relocation of the Pacific Werribee public transport hub. We’re currently providing project management, superintendency, and tenancy coordination services to the Pacific Group of Companies for the main works package due for completion in early 2017.
Highpoint Shopping Centre
World class retail destination Highpoint Shopping Centre, owned by Highpoint Property Group, GPT Wholesale Shopping Centre Fund and The GPT Group, continues its impressive redevelopment with the opening of a new casual dining and urban entertainment precinct on Level One.
The investment has created a purpose-built slow eating space with a carefully selected and diverse mix of authentic Asian restaurants. The new precinct also welcomes Strike, which sees Highpoint deliver a unique entertainment offering to Melbourne’s West.
The redevelopment saw the construction of a sweeping retractable staircase. Designed as a communal meeting point that bridges the area between the new and current precincts, the staircase can be withdrawn to accommodate the retail destination’s ongoing calendar of events and performances. APP has been providing both Project Management and Tenancy Coordination Services to GPT on this project.
Lidcombe Shopping Centre
Stage 1 of the refurbished Lidcombe Shopping Centre recently opened to the public. This first stage consisted of 34 tenancies including Kmart, Woolworths, ALDI, and a number of specialty food & beverage and convenience retailers. Spotlight and Anaconda who were both existing tenants continued to trade through the major refurbishment works.
APP has been providing tenancy coordination services on this project to our client Vicinity Shopping Centres.
Being a truly national organisation, APP was able to resource this project from a combination of our Victorian, New South Wales, and Western Australian offices. This allowed us to form a team with the optimal mix of experience for this project.
