New shopping centre
New South Wales, Australia
Frasers Property Australia
Stage one: Late-2019
The Eastern Creek Quarter is a greenfield shopping centre being built in western Sydney, Australia.
It will include a wide range of speciality stores and services, children’s play area, and other community amenities.
Western Sydney Parklands Trust (WSPT) granted the development rights to Frasers Property Australia in November 2016 to develop the shopping centre.
The ground-breaking ceremony of the project was held in September 2018. The construction will be completed in four stages, with the first stage expected to be opened in late-2019 and the final stage by 2023.
The Eastern Creek Quarter will fuel economic growth in the region and fulfil the retail needs of consumers in the area. It will create more than 2,000 jobs during the construction phase and offer 1,000 permanent full-time and part-time jobs upon becoming operational.
Eastern Creek Quarter location
The Eastern Creek Quarter shopping centre will be located approximately 35km from the Sydney Central Business District between Rooty Hill Road South and the M7 motorway. It is ideally located within a 15-minute drive for 330,000 people and a 30-minute drive for 1.2 million people.
The site will cover an area of more than 15ha in Eastern Creek, complementing the existing 100ha Eastern Creek Industrial Estate developed by Frasers Property Australia. It will also add to the existing local landmarks such as Eastern Creek Raceway, Eastern Road Sports Precinct and the new Sydney Zoo in Bungarribee Park.
Eastern Creek Quarter design details
The Eastern Creek Quarter will include a combination of retail outlets, entertainment avenues, community spaces and a unique dining hub. It will have a floor area of 50,000m² comprising supermarkets and big box outlets, retailing products such as white goods, furniture and electrical products.
Woolworth’s supermarket will occupy an area of 3,800m² at the retail centre, which will also feature a BWS liquor store. The new retail centre will also feature amenities such as pharmacy, gym, childcare centre, and medical centre.
Community gardens and public barbeques will be built within the centre, which will create spaces for visitors to socialise. A car park with 433 spaces will be provided as part of the development.
Frasers Property aims to achieve a 6-Star Green Star rating for the shopping centre.
Details of the Dining precinct at Eastern Creek Quarter
The dining precinct at the shopping centre will feature a street-food lane located next to an alfresco entertaining deck. It will have between six and eight tenants each leasing approximately between 30m² and 40m².
Chatime will be a part of the centre in addition to a new 65-seat Degani cafe, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The intersection of Rooty Hill Road South with the Great Western Highway will undergo few upgrades, including a new 90m-long right-turn lane and an extension of the existing 90m left-turn lane to 150m.
A new signalised intersection will be created at the Rooty Hill Road South at Cable Place, which will also serve as the entrance into the centre.
The service vehicles will be able to enter the centre though Beggs Road. The intersections at Beggs Road and Rooty Hill Road South will be upgraded to allow large vehicles to turn from the kerbside lane.
i2C provided architectural design services for the Eastern Creek Quarter retail precinct, while Quasar Group is responsible for building the project.
