Vicinity Centres and ISPT have launched their $55 million redevelopment of Halls Head Central Shopping Centre in Western Australia’s Peel region.
The redevelopment of Halls Head Central is positioned to take advantage of the trade area’s population growth, which is forecast to increase by 30,000 over the next eight years, not to mention the thousands of daytrippers and tourists that visit the Peel region each year.
Seventy-five kilometres south of Perth, the Halls Head Central redevelopment is opening on schedule, ahead of budget and 100 per cent leased.
The centre, which has tripled in size, now boasts a new Kmart, 55 specialty stores, a transformed Coles and a casual dining precinct with a dedicated alfresco space. It will also be home to one of WA’s first ALDI supermarkets, opening in the centre next June.
“We are committed to providing high-quality, vibrant shopping experiences and we are proud to give the community of Halls Head great retail brands, exciting food and dining options, and convenient services,” Vicinity Centres Executive General Manager of Development Jonathan Timms said.
The 12-month, $55 million development project created new jobs during construction, along with additional ongoing retail roles at the centre.
“Halls Head Central is a convenient and vibrant hub for food, fashion and services,” ISPT General Manager of Retail Services Sam Curry said. “Its location and greatly enhanced retail mix matches the market now and for years to come.
“The opening of this development is ISPT’s second in our successful development partnership with Vicinity Centres.”
Vicinity Centres has a development pipeline of $3 billion.
