Media release

Stockland is steaming ahead with the first stage of the $87 million Birtinya Shopping Centre development on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, today announcing the signing of a number of new fresh food retailers who will open their doors from December this year.

Over the past few months Stockland Birtinya has signed on a number of new retailers for stage one of the development, with plans to introduce the very best grocery and convenience store operators to the centre’s extensive fresh food precinct.

Some of the highly anticipated fresh food retailers set to open their doors in December include Fresh Fruit Brothers, offering customers a great selection of fresh fruit and vegetables, local butcher RA Quality Meats and Saffron India specialty grocer.

For the everyday convenience of customers Stockland also looks forward to welcoming local newsagent Birtinya News & Gifts, King IT and Sushi Ichiban to the fresh food precinct, with a new baker, pharmacy and medical centre still to be announced.

Caitlin Sandford, Stockland Development Manager, said: “We have received a great response from local and national fresh food and convenience retailers looking to open new stores at Stockland Birtinya. We are confident that, on completion, Stockland Birtinya will become the star local destination for the community to meet, eat, shop and socialise.”

“Our vision is to create one of the best retail shopping destinations on the Sunshine Coast, offering customers a fantastic experience with a range of retailers and brands that meet their everyday needs. We look forward to welcoming these new retailers to the centre in December and announcing additional retailers in the months to come.”

The first stage of the 10,648 square metre centre will feature a flagship Coles and Aldi supermarket, some 40 specialty retailers including two mini majors and an open air dining precinct, as well as 522 car parking spaces.

Works on the first stage of the Shopping Centre are scheduled to be delivered in December 2018.

Stockland Birtinya Shopping centre forms part of the broader $830 million[1] Birtinya Town Centre masterplan development.        

Across an area of 18 hectares, Stockland plans to develop vibrant and thriving town centre for Birtinya which will include the subregional Stockland Birtinya Shopping Centre, a new civic plaza, walkable waterfront along Lake Kawana and open green space - all integrated with commercial, health related research facilities and high density residential.
