Facelift for Innaloo centre

WESTFIELD Innaloo will be the next suburban shopping centre to undergo a facelift. The 44-year-old shopping centre is to be expanded and refurbished by the Westfield Trust, which also owns the Galleria, Morley, and Carousel, Cannington.

While no dates have been fixed, it is expected that draft plans will be submitted to the Stirling City Council within three months.

Westfield WA regional manager Darren Steinburg said the company was in the process of considering hundreds of different variations of the redevelopment plan.

“We’ve looked at hundreds of schemes to try and get the best plan for both the customers and the retailers,” Mr Steinburg said.

The trust took over the 26,300sqm centre in 1996 but until now has not moved to upgrade the shopping centre, choosing instead to focus on its other WA assets.

Westfield Innaloo has been revamped three only times since it was opened in 1957. The most recent refurbishment took place in 1992 when the centre was extended and a nine-restaurant, 375-seat food court added.

Major tenants include Target, Kmart and Coles Supermarket and the centre is also home to 82 specialty stores including chain stores such as Betts & Betts, Jeans West and Thingz.
