Luxe retailer, new food court to open at Stockland Green Hills
The Australian-owned retailer will be part of the shopping centre’s $412 million redevelopment, alongside 75 new specialty and fashion retailers and a new food court.
“For those consumers newly let in on our Secrets, they could now enjoy the same affordable luxe looks as their Sydney counterparts by shopping locally at Green Hills,” said Mike Parsell, managing director, Secrets.
Since March 2017, the company has opened two new stores (Mackay and Brisbane) with a third, Green Hills, opening before Christmas.
Retail landlord Stockland will also unveil the centre’s new food court, which comes as part of the $414 million redevelopment at Green Hills.
The food court will be encased by a glass facade, offering natural light for diners, who will have access to offerings from 12 new food retailers.
“This is a pivotal moment in the redevelopment of Stockland Green Hills,” said Daniel Brabant, Stockland Green Hills development manager
“We know our customers have had limited food options over the past year and we are very excited to unveil the first part of our revitalised food offering for the centre.
“Our new food court will offer over 500 seats and a great variety of tastes and flavours for customers from Indian curries to sushi, dumplings to salads and sandwiches. We have ensured to add a wide range to meet our customers’ needs and satisfy their hunger while they shop.”
The 12 retailers opening include Namaste Indian, Sunshine Kebabs, KFC, McDonalds, Wok N Roll, Le Wrap, Rolld, Craft Cuts, Sushi Hub, Nathans Famous, Dumpling Flavour and Muffin Break.
The new food court represents the first half of the broader food precinct for the development. Stockland will also deliver an upmarket casual dining precinct in the next stage with an additional 1,150 seats and 15 food outlets.
Upon completion, Stockland Green Hills will offer approximately 40 restaurants, food outlets and cafes across the new 74,000 square metre centre.
The November 30 stage opening will also see Stockland open a new 5,900 square metre full-line Target, 75 additional specialty retailers, an exciting new inclusive children’s playground and 490 new car parking spaces.
“We’ve made great progress so far this year and we look forward to continuing to transform Stockland Green Hills into the premier retail, entertainment and casual dining destination in the Lower Hunter,” said Brabant.
Upon completion in mid-2018, the centre will feature the first new look David Jones department store in the Hunter, a new Target discount department store, a new 900 seat Hoyts cinema and around 220 tenancies with a new dining and entertainment precinct.
