History and development[edit]

The centre is owned and managed by AMP Capital and was last redeveloped in 2014, where the centre doubled in size to approximately 39,000 m2.

2001 Stage 1 of the centre opened on June 25, 2001, consisting of two supermarkets (Coles & Newmart) and 35 speciality stores.

2005 Stage 2 extension of the centre opened in October 2005 introducing Kmart and an additional 42 speciality shops.

2006 AMP Capital Shopping Centres commenced management of the centre.

2007 Construction of the Stage 4 development commenced in April 2007 and was completed in November of the same year. This project consisted of a further extension of the Woolworths supermarket, and a second travelator at the western entrance leading to the undercover car park and Shell Express Service Station, increasing the centre's GLA to 22,800 m2.

2013 Construction commenced on the Stage 5 development in January 2013 to increase the centre GLA to 39,000 m2 through the addition of Target, approximately 50 new speciality stores and a new three level car park across a two year program.

2014 The redevelopment was completed in two stages in 2014 – Stage 1 opened on 20 March 2014 and Stage 2 opened on 6 November 2014.[2]

Architectural features[edit]

The architectural design of the redevelopment was informed by both its history and surroundings. Themes from the original pre-developed shopping centre were refreshed, with the replication of motifs from the man-made environment at the nearby Mindarie Marina. The colour palette is light and clean, with a focus on blue hues and shades of white, with measured use of natural and tactile materials. The redevelopment won the Commercial Architecture prize at the Australian Institute of Architects (WA chapter) awards in 2015.[3]
