Mandurah Forum unveils the first major retail stage of its $350 million transformation

Vicinity Centres and ISPT have unveiled the first major retail stage of Mandurah Forum’s $350 million transformation in Western Australia’s growing Peel region.

Opening on budget, on schedule and fully leased, this stage includes new Target store, a fresh food market hall and more than 60 specialty stores and the entire existing centre has also undergone a complete transformation.

Mr Angus McNaughton CEO and Managing Director of Vicinity Centres, said: “The new Mandurah Forum has been designed to provide the best everyday shopping experience for the Peel region which is now Perth’s second biggest city.”

The redevelopment of Mandurah Forum has been under construction for just over a year and it is estimated that the project is creating 1,000 jobs throughout construction and more than 700 ongoing retail, hospitality and service jobs at the completed centre.

Mr Sam Curry, General Manager of Retail Services from ISPT said: “This project has been designed to capitalise on the growing Peel community which is one of Australia’s fastest growing catchments with 2.8% population growth per annum forecast between now and 2030 and the millions of visitors and day trippers who travel to this popular tourist region each year.”

In a new era for Mandurah Forum, the expanded centre offers customers Target, the latest format Kmart, a new-look market style Coles, a Big W and Woolworths all under one roof.

Mandurah Forum’s new customer experience is complemented by convenient parking with more than 1,600 car spaces and park assist technology, new family friendly facilities and free WiFi.

The $350 million transformation of Mandurah Forum will be complete in early 2018 when the centre welcomes Western Australia’s first next generation David Jones store, a new fashion mall, casual dining precinct designed around a water oasis and a contemporary food court with an indoor-outdoor play area.
