WORKS ANNOUNCEMENT – MARCH 2019
You might have noticed, we are making some changes for the benefit of our community.
We have started to prepare for some internal relocations. This will involve moving some key tenants to a new home – the Pharmacy is first up. Works have commenced and we aim to have a brand new chemist store open to the community by October.
Unfortunately, some much loved retailers will say goodbye. We thank them for everything they have brought to the centre and wish them well as they depart.
We are excited to begin this journey and look forward to keeping the community updated and informed as we continue to provide solutions to meet your everyday needs through development and beyond.

The Centre has not been significantly improved for over 20 years, but Australian Unity lodged a Development Application with Whitehorse City Council in early March 2018.
The Application will see the centre increase in size, to approximately 14,550 square metres and incorporate an improved supermarket, upgrades to community services such as an expanded medical centre and a food and beverage entertainment precinct.
The architects, Taylor Robinson Chaney Broderick, have designed a refreshed centre with the North Blackburn and surrounding communities front of mind. The design incorporates sustainability and aesthetic considerations and will take our much-loved neighbourhood centre forward for next generations to enjoy.
The City of Whitehorse completed public consultation relating to the Development Application on 31 August 2018. We anxiously await further news around its approval and we will update you as we know more.
The Development Application plans proposed a layout change to provide better flow around the centre.
We aim to launch the newly developed centre in time for Christmas 2021.
