12 Sep 16 Turner & Townsend Thinc has been appointed by Vicinity Centres to manage the delivery of new retail tenancies in the AU$350m (£200m) redevelopment of Chadstone Shopping Centre in Melbourne, Australia.

The redevelopment will create a 25,000m2 increase in the area of what is already one of Australia’s largest shopping destinations. There will be approximately 570 stores centre when the work is completed.

Turner & Townsend Thinc director James Coffey said: “Three of its flagship tenancies including H&M, Zara and Uniqlo, plus two mini major tenancies - Rebel and JBHiFi will be managed by our tenancy delivery team.”

The redevelopment will create a new entertainment precinct that includes a digital cinema complex with 13 screens; a revitalised west mall with fashion retailers and a new Target store. Forty new retailers are included in the redevelopment plans.

Chadstone Shopping Centre’s expansion is due for completion in mid-2017, with the first stage set to open in late October 2016.
