Pacific Centres is getting ready to unveil the first stage of its $370 million redevelopment of Werribee Plaza in Melbourne's booming western corridor at the end of the month.
The centre, to be rebranded as Pacific Werribee, is set to become the premier retail and entertainment hub for the 260,000 people who live within a 10km radius.
The first stage of this landmark project, a dining and entertainment precinct, is due to complete and open to the public at the end of June.
It will be the largest of its kind in the western corridor, consisting of the Urban Diner facility alongside a 12-screen Village cinema complex including Gold Class facilities.
The Urban Diner will include 15 brand new food outlets, many of which are new to the west, such as Guzman Y Gomez, Groove Train, Sporting Globe, Pancake Parlour and San Churro. Other eateries include Grill’d, La Porchetta, Dumpling Story, Spud Bar, Schnitz, Feeling Fruity, Rice Workshop and Nandos.
Upon completion of the redevelopment, Pacific Werribee will be extended from 72,000 sqm to 107,000 sqm - a 35,000sqm increase; it will contain 350 retailers (currently 220) across fashion, fresh food, dining and entertainment; as well as 5,000 car parking spaces (currently 350).
