Eastern Creek Quarter to launch large format retail centre

Property group Frasers Property Australia said it is on the lookout for homewares retailers, adventure goods stores, automotive specialists, whitegoods brands, pet supply stores and other showroom retailers to be part of its large format retail destination at Eastern Creek Quarter.

Tim Moore, general manager of retail leasing for Frasers Property Australia, said the new large format retail and showroom offer will complement Stage 1 at Eastern Creek Quarter (ECQ), which is set to launch soon, anchored by Woolworths and featuring a dining and entertainment precinct.

Stage 2 of ECQ will deliver approximately 11600sqm of retail space with 20 to 25 tenancies, ranging from 250sqm to 2500sqm, as well as 350 on grade parking spaces. Stage 2 is expected to open in late 2020.

Moore said the ECQ development will benefit from significant infrastructure investment and strong forecast population growth in the region.

“The fundamentals for large format retailers and showrooms at ECQ demand real consideration,” he said.

“The site itself is easily accessible, with 11.2 million vehicles travelling along the Great Western Highway annually, and the population in the main trade area is undergoing significant growth.”

Large format retail leasing specialist Retail Projex has been appointed to coordinate the leasing campaign for ECQ Stage 2.

Stage 1 of ECQ will feature solar panels, an onsite rainwater tank, extensive landscaping and trees in the external carpark area and bicycle parking facilities, making it a world leader in sustainability.

It has been awarded a six-star Green Star Design & As Built rating by the Green Building Council of Australia.
