RETAIL PROJECT

Birkenhead Point Fresh Food and Dining Precinct

APG have been engaged by Mirvac to commence the upgrade of the existing food and dining precinct at Drummoyne’s Birkenhead Point. Birkenhead Point was originally a rubber factory up until 1976 when it was closed and sold to David Jones to be redeveloped into a waterfront shopping centre. Apartments were added in the 90’s and the stores drew focus on designer outlet stores. In its current capacity, Birkenhead Point is home to 162 retailers.

This project involves the reconfiguration of the food and dining layout to promote site lines down to the centre’s waterfront. The concept of a more sophisticated flow from the street level to the lower ground marine promenade will enhance the development precinct and activate the centre, drawing patrons to the waterfront the site is known for.

The project is due to commence construction in mid 2019 with a priority to minimise the amount of time retailers will be impacted. The site also has heritage significance which will require consideration during the project.

The phases required include development application, design development, contractor procurement, and construction and superintendent services. Separately, Mirvac Retail requires tenancy coordination services to effectively manage retailer designs, costs, shop fitter programmes and take responsibility of the delivery of the tenancies. The project is due for completion in 2020.
