About the Project

Stockland Townsville redefines the notion of shopping in the region.  With a floor plan totalling 53,000m2 the centre is now home to the city’s first Myer department store.

Redefining the notion of shopping in Townsville, the newly expanded Stockland Townsville offers the first Myer department store in the region with 55 new specialty stores and the latest concept Woolworths.  The reconfigured mall design promotes foot traffic throughout the centre, matches price points to the demographic, showcases tenants and importantly sells Stockland’s vision.

Outcome

PDT successfully delivered the $180 Million redevelopment under a D+C delivery.  The result offers 13,372m2 of floor space with a reconfigured layout designed to increase foot traffic and dwell times to showcase tenants.  The center also achieved upgraded pedestrian access with new landscaping surrounding the center, revised major traffic access points and a four star rating from the Green Building Council of Australia.

Staged building works allowed the inclusion of the new major tenants whilst still maintaining the continued operation of the existing Shopping Centre. This was achieved through PDT’s presence on site and in close collaboration with our major stakeholders.

Upgraded entry statements reinvigorate the existing urban fabric, and the selected palette of materials was considered for longevity and resilience providing an appropriate, yet contemporary response to the redevelopment of the Centre.
