Information from Stockland.[3]

Stockland Glendale is a major shopping centre located in Glendale, a suburb of the City of Lake Macquarie, New South Wales, Australia.[4]

It is located on Lake Road, Glendale, on a 19.6-hectare (48.4-acre) parcel of land, and primarily serves the Lake Macquarie region to the southwest of Newcastle.

History and development[edit]

Stockland released a concept plan for the Glendale Super Centre in 1994. It was being developed as a US-style power centre consisting of category killer traders, where tenants traded in an open-air environment and there was no internal malls. The tenants listed in the proposal included Target, Woolworths, Franklins Big Fresh, Homeart, World 4 Kids and Best & Less, and room had been provided for about 50 specialty stores, including free-standing fast food outlets.[5][6] The centre was valued at A$55.5 million on completion in March 1996.

In December 2005, Stockland completed an 8,749 square metres (94,173 sq ft) expansion to the centre, adding a Kmart and 19 specialty stores.[3]

Annual turnover at the centre for 2007 was A$261.2 million, with a book value of $220 million.[3]

In June 2015, there is currently a proposal to double the retail space in the centre, as part of a $60 million plan. It is predicted to create 278 retail jobs and 330 construction jobs. [7]


The centre is directly serviced by Newcastle Buses and Ferries bus routes 226,[8] 334, 339 and 363,[9] and by Hunter Valley Buses routes 262, 263, 267, 268, 270 and 271.[10]

Stockland Glendale is a terminus for most of these routes, and it is used as a major bus interchange, with tickets being transferable between buses at that stop.[citation needed] Several of these routes also link the centre to Cardiff railway station about four kilometres away.
