NEW ENTERTAINMENT, RETAIL & DINING PRECINCT
December 26, 2021
We are excited the share that works have now commenced on the largest and final stage of Busselton Central's $45 million redevelopment, which will add a range of entertainment, dining and retail to the centre!
This stage of the works, totalling $30 million, will comprise of an additional 6,000 square metres of gross lettable area and include ~4,000 square metres of food and dining and two specialty retailers. The works will see the Mitchell Park side of the shopping centre undergo a major transformation, becoming an indoor/outdoor dining and entertainment precinct that will include a five-screen Reading Cinemas!
The ground floor will include a local tavern and boutique brewery, as well as more than ten food and dining and stores.
Upon completion, the new Busselton Central will provide the local Busselton community with a one-stop modern dining and entertainment experience and will further activate Mitchell Park, both as a community focal point but also as a visitor destination and an ‘after five’ precinct.
The design takes inspiration from the essence of Busselton, where simple organic forms and a clean, coastal inspired colour scheme will enhance the relaxed, family friendly spaces that will sit alongside the park. The new space will include shady pergolas, soft landscape and playable spaces that will enable a direct and seamless connection to the park and to Queen Street and Kent Street.
Stages one and two of the $45 million redevelopment were completed in early 2020 and included a new Coles supermarket, new mall and six new specialty retailers. The new precinct is expected to be open for trade by Christmas 2022.
