Westfield Whitford City launches $80m hub
The new entertainment hub features over 10 retailers, including a micro-brewery.
The project, jointly owned by Scentre Group and GIC, commenced in August last year,which sees the centre’s size increase approximately 5,600sqm to around 85,000sqm, with a total of 314 retailers on completion of all works.
The beach-inspired destination is now home to an Event Cinemas complex with V-Max and Gold Class as well as a diverse mix of well-established food operators and unique local offerings, including Whitfords Brewing Co., WA’s first Hunter & Barrel, Jersey Jack Gelato, Guzman Y Gomez, Bangkok Brothers and East Village.
The hub is designed with green spaces and water features with an imaginative play area.
Greg Miles, Scentre Group COO, said the project is part of the company’s broader investment in the West Australian market and is the first of their three redevelopments that will come to life over the next few years.
“The Whitford City dining and entertainment hub will deliver a lifestyle offer not previously available in Perth’s north, and will set a new standard in our centres which we look forward to continuing with our subsequent projects at Westfield Carousel and Innaloo,” Miles said.
Westfield Whitford City’s redevelopment will be followed by Westfield Carousel, currently underway and due for completion in late 2018 and Westfield Innaloo which is due to commence in the first half of 2018.
