Narellan Town Centre has officially opened in southwest Sydney, marking the completing of the $200 million redevelopment project.
The refurb involved a major extension of the existing shopping centre on the south side of Camden Valley Way, joining the brand new section of the Centre on the north side of the major arterial road.
A 38-metre wide pedestrian link bridge spanning 48 metres across Camden Valley Way at the retail level – the full width of the shopping mall – now integrates the north and south precincts. A total gross floor area of 132,810sqm was delivered by construction firm, Mainbrace, with a design competition helping to shape the external community spaces.
In all, 35,000sqm of net lettable area (NLA) has been added to the existing town centre south of Camden Valley Way, while the greenfield site on the north side of the road is a new connected centre with 23,207sqm of NLA.
The retail project owned by Dart West Retail was completed on schedule and was officially unveiled at a function on site last Friday.
“This project is the centrepiece of our expansive retail construction portfolio,” said Rob Doust, Mainbrace managing director.
Mark Perich, a director of Dart West Retail, said the expanded centre is a reflection of the community’s evolving needs and desires.
“We want people to actually stay here in Narellan rather than have to travel to shop. It means a lot to us to see it open and to see such a high class and quality piece of infrastructure in south west Sydney,” he said.
An Australian-first automatic water fountain stands as the centrepiece of the north side’s restaurant and entertainment precinct.
