4 Star Green Star Retail Centre Design

A unique retail project with a high level of finish to complement specialty retail tenancies

The $100 million shopping centre upgrade at Burnside Village sees Multiplex delivering an extra 35 shops to the regional centre.

The works included demolition of the existing mall and construction of a new connecting 17,000m2 retail centre plus an extension to the existing undercroft parking.

Only five kilometres from Adelaide’s CBD, the regional retail complex will benefit from the addition of several premium fashion and lifestyle retailers, taking the overall total to 120 tenants, creating a shopping hub for the surrounding area.

Completed in stages the majority of work was conducted out of hours in order to minimise disruption to functioning tenancies.

Although the existing centre wass fully operational, early works saw some retailers such as Sussan, Flight Centre, the bakery and the fruit and veg store relocated into the southern atrium.

Multiplex expanded the southern atrium northwards. It was built around the centre’s 100-year-old 12-metre tall River Red Gum, which is covered with a large glass ceiling, allowing for two-storey shops with six-metre-high shopfronts.

Interior works such as tiling, lighting and paving upgrades and modifications to the roof and secondary roof lights were also upgraded. Walkways were included in the construction, allowing shoppers to travel between the southern atrium and shops.
