Colliers International secures several retailers to fill remaining tenancies at Ballarat’s newest sub-regional shopping centre
Several retailers have committed to the remaining tenancies at Delacombe Town Centre, as construction workers make the finishing touches ahead of its opening in August.
Colliers International’s Bernie Canning and Mike Crittenden have secured seven businesses since March to bring the new shopping centre to near capacity, including My Place Massage, Delacombe Family Dental, Dr Boom Communications, Wendy’s Milk Bar, Just Cuts, DTC Fruit and Vegetables, Chill Espresso Lounge and Akita Sushi.
Owned and developed by Ballarat’s Troon family, the sub-regional shopping centre on the corner of Cherry Flat Road and Glenelg Highway will be a welcome addition to the ever-evolving regional city.
“Anchored by Woolworths and Kmart, the Ballarat-fringe shopping centre has a state-of-the-art, urban-inspired design, which will be uniquely different from anything seen before in Ballarat,” Mr Canning said.
“Delacombe Town Centre, or ‘DTC’ as it will colloquially be known, is another quality addition to the western growth corridor of Ballarat, supporting a main trade area of more than 55,000 people.”
With 16,150sqm of gross leasing area comprising more than 35 speciality stores, plus 825 free on-grade car parks, the sub-regional shopping centre is expected to receive 1.4million visitors annually, contributing to about $833.1million retail sales by 2018.
“Excellent leasing opportunities are still available for hair, beauty, fashion, dining and takeaway operators,” Mr Canning said.
“This is an unmissable retail opportunity, particularly for those retailers eager to leverage off the exciting inclusion of Showbiz Cinemas, a major after-5pm drawcard which features six boutique digital theatres.”
