BALDIVIS ADDS ANOTHER CENTRE

Construction has commenced on the Tuart Ridge Town Centre in Baldivis.

Tuart Ridge Town Centre Shopping Centre will be situated on the corner of Makybe Drive and Pharlap Parade in the rapidly expanding suburb of Baldivis. The Centre is strategically positioned adjacent to the Makybe Rise Primary School which caters for 1,200 students in addition to a 120 place childcare centre.

The Centre will have a GLA of over 5,000 sqm anchored by a 1,500 sqm IGA, owned and operated by one of Perth’s most experienced and renowned supermarket operators. In addition, the Town Centre will comprise of over 20 specialty shops, with just over 40% already pre-committed prior to construction commencing. Master Planning and Project Leasing has been awarded to Axia Corporate Property. Mr Musbah said “we are pleased to be part of this project and have been overwhelmed with the strong response from retailers to be part of this Centre and the pre-commitments to date, and this is all before construction has even commenced!”. The Tuart Ridge Town Centre Shopping Centre is due for completion in the third quarter of 2016 with a scheduled opening prior to Christmas.

The balance of the remaining space is expected to lease quickly to a combination of restaurants, café, pharmacy, newsagency and general retail and service businesses.

Tuart Ridge Town Centre has a planned opening of late 2016, just over 18 months following the opening of the re-development and expansion of Stockland Baldivis. Mr Musbah added “We were very strategic in the Master Planning and the delivery timing of Tuart Ridge, identifying its position in Baldivis, in order to create its own identity with a focus on community, ownership, convenience and what makes a Town Centre work”. This has been reflected by the huge investment from the developer in the street scape with over 2 Million Dollars invested in landscaping, street art and public spaces.

Baldivis has a well-established population of approximately 20,000 residents and is predicted to exceed to 35,000 in the coming years.
