Currently a vibrant shopping village with great multicultural retail and food outlets appreciated by customers, the centre itself is old and has access and parking issues.
We are at the point where more than a renovation is needed and the planning process is underway to fully renew the centre and provide a better customer experience meeting contemporary expectations.
We recognise the important role Eastlakes Shopping Centre plays within the local community and also the impact of some of our existing operations. We believe our proposed plans will help to address many of these issues.

Good design is recognised by government, industry and the community as being critical to creating buildings and spaces we would like to spend time in. Places that are inviting and attractive, inclusive and connected, safe and comfortable, functional and efficient, and fit current and future local needs and aspirations. The redevelopment of the site provides the opportunity to enhance the local environment and key to great design, along with the expertise of specialist consultants, is understanding the aspirations and expectations of the community.
