Delivering the expansion of a high performing Centre in Perth 

Vicinity Centres identified Midland Gate Shopping Centre as a key asset to develop to provide an increased number and broader range of retail outlets to respond the demand of a growing eastern suburbs corridor in Perth. Already a high performing centre, the key objectives were to relocate major tenant Coles, attract new major tenants such as Harris Scarfe and Aldi and increase the number of carparking bays. On completion the centre has expanded to approximately 69,000 square metres of gross lettable area and will include a new fresh food precinct, an expanded dining offer and 215 retailers.

Expanding the possibilities

APP was initially appointed by Vicinity Centres to prepare a feasibility review of their Midland Gate shopping centre expansion, which required a Development Application (DA) to be lodged.  

Following on from the successful DA, APP was then engaged to undertake project management and superintendency services for the construction of the shopping centre expansion.

Construction was carried out in a live environment to enable the Centre to remain operational. In response, APP’s specialists devised a staged programme to minimise impact to the tenants and the public. The project was delivered over 7 stages and involved significant interface with the Centre management and all tenant stakeholders.

Today, Midland Gate features approximately 69,000m2 of GFA. This expansion welcomes new tenants to the shopping centre including ALDI, Coles, Harris Scarfe, Rebel and JB HiFi, in addition to 45 specialty and food tenancies. The basement carpark has also significantly increased and an upper-level carpark deck added for extra shopping convenience.
