Westfield Whitford City’s $80 million redevelopment launched today with the opening of a highly-anticipated dining and entertainment hub, featuring more than 10 retailers including a micro-brewery.
Jointly owned by Scentre Group and GIC, the project commenced in August 2016 and sees Westfield Whitford City increase by approximately 5,600] square metres (sqm) to around 85,000 sqm in size, with a total of 314 retailers on completion of all works.
The beach-inspired destination is now home to a first-class Event Cinemas complex with V-Max and Gold Class as well as a diverse mix of well-established food operators and unique local offerings, with Whitfords Brewing Co., WA’s first Hunter & Barrel, Jersey Jack Gelato, Guzman Y Gomez, Bangkok Brothers and East Village, to name a few.
The vibrant precinct brings a superior lifestyle offer to Perth’s northern suburbs and in the coming months will expand with the addition of a number of additional entertainment and dining options.
The hub has been designed as a place for the community to come together with green spaces, water features and unique design elements creating a welcoming environment. An imaginative play area and regular live acoustic music gigs, make it a great destination for the whole family.
Scentre Group Chief Operating Officer Greg Miles said: “This project is part of our broader investment in the West Australian market and is the first of our 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.”
An array of brands will be celebrating across the whole weekend with giveaways, events and over 50 special offers for customers to enjoy.
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.
