Proposed Layout Plan

Retail First and YFG announced the proposal on 4 March 2021, outlining that the new 7,000 square metre redevelopment is aimed to open before Christmas 2021. The internal tenancies design reorientation provides a “market-like” feel and provide direct pedestrian access to the basement car park.

Steven Bridges, Managing Director of Retail First outlined that the new plans for Calamvale Central were well placed to revitalise the shopping centre.

“The proposed changes will allow us to enhance the centre and tenancy mix, creating a new and fresh shopping experience that will deliver different kinds of activities alongside shoppers’ everyday needs”.

“the changes would incorporate a proposed day time/night time laneway precinct, offering fresh food and dining options that will complement the existing retailers”, Mr Bridges said.

Buchan Group design is suggested to portray an “internal streetscape” with the sights and sounds of food being prepared from within the tenancies,  an intimate area for diners who will ultimately become part of the “hustle and bustle” of the laneway concept.

Ms Deanne Woolcock, Calamvale Central’s Centre Manager outlined that it was a step forward for the centre. “This is an exciting opportunity for the Centre. The proposed changes will be the most significant since Calamvale Central opened in 2007 and will embrace the multiculturally diverse mix of the fast-growing community.”

“The Laneway will reflect the locals desire for fresh food, dining and leisure offers in one easy parking, shopping, dining and entertainment precinct”.

Leasing discussions are in the final stages and an impressive tenancy mix is expected to be announced soon.

The proposal seeks to reduce the shopping centre by 910sqm of gross floor area (GFA) to the subject site as part of the proposal.
