Burnside Village, located in Adelaide’s eastern suburbs, has signed several high-profile retailers including international brands Hugo Boss and Polo Ralph Lauren.
The centre, which is anchored by Coles and South Australia’s only Zara store is made up of 100 speciality shops. It was ranked as Australia’s number two performing centre by total sales in the annual Shopping Centre News 2020 Mini-Guns category.
Hugo Boss have agreed to lease a prime corner flagship store opposite Zara, due to open in early 2021. Polo Ralph Lauren will be opening prior to Christmas 2020.
In September Seed Heritage opened their new 2 level 500+sqm Seed Heritage flagship store on the opposite corner to Zara and the proposed Hugo Boss. Footwear retailer, Tony Bianco, is also opening a new store before Christmas 2020.
Colliers Head of Retail Leasing in South Australia, Ben Laycock, said, “Having closed their city store in January 2019, Hugo Boss are thrilled to bring their latest fit out and their full Men’s and Ladies’ suit and fashion range to Burnside Village.”
“The quality of the centre and the calibre of co-tenants at Burnside Village made Brandbank’s decision to expand their Seed Heritage brand and establish a flagship store at Burnside an easy one.”
“Scanlan Theodore, one of Burnside Village’s top performing fashion stores have also shown confidence in the centre by extending their current lease. Meanwhile a new lease to Lorna Jane signals the strength of the Ladies Active Leisurewear category, joining the highly successful Lululemon store at the centre”.
Burnside Village has also recently undertaken a refurbishment of their Village Market anchored by Coles. Four new leases have been signed with Sushi Hub, Mr Cheese, Dumpling Lab and Chi Body Spirit.
“In addition, existing popular retailers Haydon’s Butcher, the Village Bakery and Let Them Eat have all re-committed to longer term leases and undertaken new fitouts and South Australia’s unique Tony & Marks will expand their store and offering.”
Cohen Group CEO, John Blunt, said “Burnside Village had recovered strongly since June with total centre traffic close to prior year levels and sales higher than 2019”. “This reflects our strong tenancy mix, premium presentation, easy access with undercover parking and convenient suburban location.”
Burnside Village has an adjacent cleared development ready site of around 10,000 m2 with prime frontage to both Greenhill and Portrush Roads. The Cohen Group has plans to expand Burnside Village once there is more certainty with economic conditions.
