WE’VE GOT NEWS

 

As part of the continual evolution of Chadstone – The Fashion Capital, we’re excited about sharing our vision for future development.

Community liveability and customer experience are at the core of our plans.

Several development applications have been lodged with the City of Stonnington.

 

Planned key projects include:
  • Priority expansion of Coles and David Jones car parks bringing an additional 1,400 new car spaces across two of our parking precincts
  • Upgraded fresh food precinct, with a focus on workplace, wellness and lifestyle retailers
  • Expansion of the leisure and dining precinct
  • Nine-storey commercial office building and landmark entrance at Middle Road 

Chadstone plays a significant role within the growing Monash economic region, supporting ongoing and future employment.

Our plans will address demand from commercial office tenants wanting to be based at Chadstone and continue to deliver the experiences to our customers and retailers that they have come to expect.

Lifestyle destinations, such as Chadstone, are community hubs bringing together more of the elements we need to create vibrant neighbourhoods, including the best fresh food and experience-led retailing alongside general services with robust public transport connections.

FAQs

What are the projects?
  • Priority expansion of Coles and David Jones car parks bringing an additional 1,400 new car spaces across two of our parking precincts
  • Upgraded fresh food precinct, with a focus on workplace, wellness and lifestyle retailers
  • Expansion of the leisure and dining precinct
  • Nine-storey commercial office building and landmark entrance at Middle Road
Why these projects?

We see these projects as the next phase of Chadstone’s evolution as we work to respond to our community's changing expectations and lifestyle needs, and broader employment trends - in the same way our accommodation and conference facilities at Hotel Chadstone have responded to tourism and business needs.

What is the total development cost?

The projects have a total investment cost circa $685 million.

Are you extending Chadstone’s boundaries?

No, the projects won’t increase the size of the precinct but rather refresh and repurpose existing space, utilising land within the current Chadstone footprint.

When do you expect work to start?

If approved, it’s anticipated work could begin in 2021. Project construction would be staged over a three to four year period. We aim to prioritise the commencement of the car park expansion.

What approval is required?

The development applications are subject to the usual approval process by the City of Stonnington and the projects still require approval by Chadstone’s co-owners.

How many jobs will the projects create?

The proposed projects will generate, on average, more than 650 full time-equivalent (FTE) direct and indirect jobs.  At peak construction, these projects will generate more than 850 FTE jobs in total.

 

The proposed additional commercial office building is expected to generate more than 2,000 direct and indirect full-time jobs. And we anticipate creating more than 900 opportunities for hospitality, healthcare and key workers, not only supporting the economy but servicing our local community. 

What impact will the work have on trade?

These proposals include a mix of refurbished and new areas, delivered in stages, to minimise customer disruption and centre impacts.

 

To minimise the impact to customers and retailers during construction, a series of staging plans have been developed and will continue to be reworked to minimise any disruptions.

How will the work impact local traffic?

Our specialist traffic engineering consultants suggest the projects, particularly the addition of more than 1,400 car spaces, will help improve accessibility and reduce congestion for those coming to and from Chadstone.

 

For our local customers, we’re working with Public Transport Victoria to better connect our community, with a recent bus trial operating between Oakleigh Station and The Fashion Capital – which has been well received and is now one of the highest patronage weekend bus services in Melbourne.

 

Transport remains a critical consideration for our customers, retailers and the broader Chadstone workforce and we think these projects at Chadstone, coupled with government investment in exploring the feasibility of light rail, will enhance the liveability and economic value of our region.

Is there time for community consultation?

Yes, we feel this is a critical part of our planning process. We have set aside 10 weeks of community consultation and we encourage our customers and community to be part of the planning process. Please refer to the below session dates and times.
