Latest Development News

Abacus Property Group, Owner of Lutwyche City, purchased the Centre in October 2015 as part of its super convenience retail strategy to develop shopping centres that deliver a full range of supermarket, food and service offerings that is curated for the demographic and growing population in the area. Shortly after acquisition the Group lodged a development application seeking to enhance the centre’s convenience attributes, while also upgrading amenity, to provide convenient car parking, parent rooms and upgraded public areas in addition to medical healthcare and childcare services on site. Following approval, development activities commenced in 2017 and are on track for completion in mid 2019. These major capital works will substantially improve the convenience and everyday shopping experience for the local community.

Centre Manager David Smith stated in early 2018, "We are thrilled to be able to share with our local community the news that Woolworths supermarket will join the centre with a 3,500m2 full line supermarket in mid 2019. Woolworths will complement the existing Coles and ALDI supermarkets, delivering a centre that can service and dominate its catchment areas in which they operate. ALDI will also relocate to new position in the centre with a 1,750m2 updated fit out to complement the upgraded centre. Adding to the excitement is a number of new faces joining the tenant roster including Papilio’s Early Learning Centre which will home more than 100 toddlers. Later this year will see the opening of the new fresh food marketplace which is currently being constructed.”
