An opening date has been set for the final stage of the $800 million Karrinyup Shopping Centre redevelopment, which will include a new dining and entertainment precinct.
The first stage of the redevelopment launched to the public last week, comprising part of The Loop precinct and the new Fresh Market.
The final stage of the redevelopment will open the entirety of The Loop – two levels of fashion and retail brands – as well as the new dining and entertainment precinct that will include a 10-screen HOYTS cinema.
AMP Capital has announced October 7 as the official opening date for the final stage, bringing the total number of stores in the centre to 290.
Australian furniture and design brand Coco Republic and designer handbag brand Coach have been announced as new tenants at The Loop.
Those retailers will join Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Sephora, H&M, UNIQLO, Zara, Adidas, and Nike.
“This reflects the calibre of the new centre’s diverse offering where everything from beloved Australian brands to celebrated international designers can be found under one roof,” Mr Nugent said.
In addition to HOYTS, new outdoor entertainment and dining precinct, The West Deck, will also feature Archie Brothers Circus, Holey Moley, Strike Bowling, as well as more than 17 food and beverage venues and open grass and play areas.
There will be an additional 18 hospitality tenants within the Café Terrace precinct.
“This comprehensive mix of fashion, beauty, and lifestyle, alongside unique food and beverage retailers and leading entertainment venues, will achieve the experience we have been striving to curate at Karrinyup for the past three years,” Mr Nugent said.
Karrinyup’s $800 million expansion started in November 2018 and represents Perth’s largest commercial construction project.
The redevelopment will double the size of the centre, expanding from approximately 59,874 square metres to 109,000sqm, catering to 290 retail stores. It will be the second largest shopping centre in Western Australia, according to Business News Data & Insights, just behind Westfield Carousel (110,000sqm).
