Colliers International executes successful two-year retail leasing campaign at Delacombe Town Centre
Ballarat’s Troon family opened the doors to a new sub-regional shopping centre in Delacombe last week, with opportunities for retail tenancies being finalised following the successful launch of Woolworths, K-Mart, Show Biz Cinemas and several speciality retailers.
Located on the corner of Cherry Flat Road and Glenelg Highway, Delacombe Town Centre, or DTC as it will colloquially be known, is a welcome addition to the ever-evolving regional city of Ballarat.
Colliers International’s Bernie Canning, Mike Crittenden and Daniel Ryan acted as sole project leasing agents for the centre.
“Our Retail Project Leasing team has spent two years advising the client on the master planning for the site and creating a best-in-class marketing and leasing campaign, which generated more than 500 enquiries, with the majority of tenancies either leased or in final negotiations,” Mr Canning said.
“DTC will provide the western Ballarat fringe with a state-of-the-art shopping centre that adds quality and convenient amenities, including fresh food, a pharmacy, hair and beauty salons and retail fashion stores. Cafés, fast food and other dining options also cater to the needs of the local community.”
The centre is already home to 14 new retailers, including one of the largest Woolworths supermarkets in Victoria at 4,200sqm, a K-Mart (5,700sqm) and a boutique digital Showbiz Cinemas with six screens.
The Butcher Club, Chill Espresso Café, Noodle House, Toyland, Dr Boom Communications, Delacombe Family Dental, Just Cuts, Cutie Nails, Vin’s Massage, Che Modea Fashion and Smokemart & GiftBox have also already opened.
A Direct Chemist Outlet, The Groove Train, Akita Sushi, Tatts, Wendy’s, Kaisercraft, DTC Fruit and Vegetables, Rosenhart Bakery, Smart Dollar, medical centre and laundromat are all coming soon.
“The response to the marketing and leasing campaign has been incredible and it really has vindicated the owners’ investment in the western growth corridor of Ballarat,” Mr Canning said.
“Not only that, DTC will provide 250 retail and service and jobs to the local community.”
Leasing opportunities remain for a gymnasium or health club, fashion retailers and food and beverage operators. Please contact Mr Canning on 0427 118 181 or Mr Crittenden on 0400 544 045 for more information.
