The shopping centre dates back to 1967 and was designed by John Costello & Associates. The most striking thing about this shopping centre is its open air. The aim was to be a retail village, a place you come to do your weekly shopping without the pressure of having to go into town. It’s the same car-led model as all shopping centres, where convenient parking is the main selling point, but it’s got a big clock, ‘streets’ with paths and planting, and you’re outside in fresh air and real weather.
The transformation of the facade is well under way and you can see from the images the huge difference this is making to the once dated façade. The second phase of the façade building will start again 2018 after the Christmas holidays and we will update with more images as soon as work commences.
