Marketplace Gungahlin Retailer Update
Marketplace Gungahlin is a convenient, sub regional shopping centre located in the heart of the thriving Gungahlin Town Centre. Anchored by Woolworths, Kmart and Big W, Marketplace Gungahlin is a one-stop shop for shopping, dining and everyday services.
A variety of tenants have recently joined an already-impressive mix of retail, dining and service offerings.
The grand opening of Gungahlin Montessori Academy Child Care Centre within the Marketplace marks a first within the Australian Capital Territory. The campus has been carefully designed to embrace each child’s individual interests, personality, and learning style catering for children aged 0-6 years of age.
Medibank Private also opened their doors for trade in February 2019 and have since enjoyed high levels of engagement. Wanting to target young families, Medibank saw Marketplace Gungahlin as the ideal location to open their new shop front, with traditional families (couples with dependent children) being the predominant household type throughout the trade area.
Marketplace recently welcomed to the Centre Hon Dr Andrew Leigh MP, Dr Leigh is the Shadow Assistant Treasurer and Federal Member for Fenner in the ACT. Dr Leigh’s Electorate Office located in Stage 2 of the development is a great point-of-call for the community to discuss local political matters with a federal representative. In addition, Dr Fiona Spencer (Psychologist) opened a private practice, boosting our already compressive health services and specialist located within the Centre.
Marketplace boutique fashion has too been revived with the conversion of Mini Bling, stepping up the style game with high quality, affordable children’s and women’s clothing. This is in addition to an already solid line up of fashion retailers including; Ozmosis, Millers, Suzanne Grae, Lowes and Rockmans.
Marketplace in its entirety has undergone a mammoth transformation with the new bus interchange and Hibberson Street shared zone opening in October 2018. The project aimed to revitalise Hibberson Street and the broader Gungahlin town centre. Creating with the new shared zone a greater opportunity for alfresco dining along the street front and a more village like atmosphere for visitors to enjoy.
The shared zone, new bus station and other improvements to the Gungahlin town centre has seen the Marketplace go from strength-to-strength. In addition to this, the soon-to-be complete Light Rail project, which will run from the City to Gungahlin will attract more people, business and investment to the Gungahlin Town Centre. Providing Marketplace and our retailers with a fantastic opportunity to appeal to a wider market and attract city dwellers to our wonderful suburban offering.
