Highpoint Shopping Centre

Project details: 

APP was engaged by The GPT Group (GPT) for the redevelopment and extension of their Highpoint Shopping Centre in Melbourne.  Having assisted GPT with master planning and its development approvals, APP then undertook a design management role and assisted with Contractor tender negotiations.

APP acted as both Construction Project Manager and also Tenancy Coordinator for multiple tenancies. Stage 1 opened to the public in October 2012 with anchor tenant Woolworths, a fresh food mall and 30 specialty retail stores. Completion of Stage 2 welcomed David Jones and 80 retailers to the Centre in March 2013.

In total the development has added 30,000sqm of retail space, comprising a mix of new major tenancies, new mini majors and specialty retail stores, including associated food and public spaces. Additional infrastructure including loading dock upgrades, 1000 additional car park spaces over two new multi deck car parks and an external ring road realignment were also delivered as part of the redevelopment.

Highpoint's North West Precinct was recognised for design excellence when awarded as Best Retail Architecture in Australia at the 2014 Asia Pacific International Property Awards.
