Mint floors will be trading in a temporary store on the ground floor during Caringbah Home $30+ million expansion
Caringbah Home is embarking on a renovation journey that will see the centre become the stand-out shopping destination in The Shire. In collaboration with renowned international architects, Buchan Group, Aventus’ vision is to deliver a twenty-first century retail experience.
Extensive upgrades are designed to embody the coastal lifestyle that is integral to The Shire, with a design focus that will bring the outdoors in. The over $30 million project will include redesigned entrances and facades and an upgrade of public areas. It also includes exciting and fresh dining options and amenities that are all designed to appeal to customers.
Stage 1 is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2020.
Mint floors will be trading in a temporary store on the ground floor – right outside Fantastic Furniture and JB Hi-FI until Stage 1 is complete.
The Koonya Circuit pedestrian entry / access point has also been reconfigured and pedestrian access through to the main mall level increased.
A range of changes have been made to the previously approved development application, followed by proposed modifications, which were subsequently withdrawn and revised.
It had been intended to include a new “alfresco dining / terrace, looking out over Taren Point Road”, but this feature appears to have been replaced by an outdoor dining and play area next to the car park on the eastern side.
Property owner Adventus received DA approval in late 2016 for the upgrade of what is Sutherland Shire’s largest bulky goods retail centre, previously known as Caringbah Homemaker.
The centre includes stores such as Harvey Norman, Freedom, Fantastic Furniture and JB Hi-Fi.
An extra floor will be added and the centre will also expand outwards to the corner of Willarong Road and Koonya Circuit.
A Sutherland Shire Council assessment supports the proposed changes.
