History and development
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. The centre was valued at A$55.5 million on completion in March 1996.
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.
