get in on the ground floor: last opportunity for LOCAL businesses at Stockland kensington


Stockland is charging ahead with its $30 million Stockland Kensington neighbourhood retail development and is encouraging local business operators to apply now for one of the last remaining tenancy opportunities, before they are gone. The new neighbourhood shopping centre is on schedule to open for the first time in March 2017.

 

Earlier this week, Stockland confirmed The Reject Shop, one of Australia's largest discount variety retailers for value-conscious consumers, will be opening at the centre. The 650 square metre store will join a stable of new convenience based food and service operators including a cafe, sushi train, noodles, kebab shop, beautician and nail bar. 

 

The new centre located adjacent to Sugarland Shoppingtown in Bundaberg West will be anchored by a full-line, 4,500 square metre Coles supermarket and a 150 square metre Liquorland outlet. The centre will focus on everyday convenience and will offer customers easy access to approximately 260 covered parking bays.

 

Construction on Stockland Kensington commenced in July this year and is generating 73 jobs during construction, and will create around 70 new, local retail jobs in perpetuity once the new shopping centre is open and actively trading from March next year.

 

Stockland Development Manager, Geraldine Burke, said: “We’re well on schedule with this exciting project and we look forward to opening the new neighbourhood centre early next year.

 

“We are excited to offer the very latest and greatest new Coles supermarket design and fit out, which will be complimented by a diverse mix of retailers and retail service providers that will appeal to customers’ every day needs.”

 

With only a few remaining vacancies left, Stockland is urging any local business operators to contact the leasing team to secure one of the last remaining new local business opportunities at the brand new centre.
