WA’s first DFO set to become Perth’s newest retail destination

Western Australia’s first DFO, offering customers a premium outlet experience is set to become Perth’s newest retail destination with the $150 million development project unveiled today. 

Jointly funded by Vicinity Centres and Perth Airport Pty Ltd, construction of the highly anticipated DFO Perth is underway with the centre due to open next year.

With 120 specialty stores, the centre will offer customers international designers, premium apparel, mainstream fashion, childrenswear, lifestyle and homewares and sports and adventure all available on one convenient level. 

With 24,000 square metres of gross lettable space, the centre will also include a selection of contemporary food and dining options, playground facilities and parking for more than 1,500 cars. 

Vicinity Centres, Executive General Manager of Development, Carolyn Viney said: “We are excited about the unique opportunity that we have to create Perth’s first premium outlet centre which will build on Vicinity’s extensive DFO eastern states expertise. 

“With DFO offering up to 70% off designer brands all year round, Western Australians will soon be able to enjoy all the brands they love at the best prices. 

“A new home for fashion, we are confident DFO Perth will become shoppers’ new best friend.” 

Perth Airport, Chief Executive Officer, Kevin Brown said: “The development is creating an estimated 900 direct jobs including 250 jobs throughout construction and 650 ongoing retail and hospitality roles at the completed centre.” 

“The new DFO will add to the vibrancy of our city and our tourism offering to attract visitors to Perth and Western Australia,” said Mr Brown.

Centrally located, the nine-hectare site is adjacent to Perth Airport with strong arterial access making Western Australia’s first DFO highly accessible and convenient for both residents and visitors to Perth.
