[COM] Re: Armada Arndale (Redevelopment) | $200m

Ok well to clear up any confusion, it was called Westfield Kilkenny when Westfield first purchased it, but Westfield noticed most customers still called it Arndale, so once the Arndale company was no longer in business Westfield adopted the name!

The subsequent owners since have kept the name too!

I'm positive it was Westfield Kilkenny. Arndale is just what people called it. Although interestingly I did see an article from when Westfield sold their share in it referring to it as Westfield Arndale.
Clearly you didn't look at the above video or photos!

I now just happen to live very close to one of the other Australian Arndale centres, at Springwood, Queensland.

That one is still called Arndale (just "Arndale", no prefix or suffix), and is now owned by a company called Retail First.

I'm glad it's not called Retail First Arndale! 😆

The Arndale company built shopping centres all over the UK, and 4 in Australia. There were two in SA. Kilkenny, and Oaklands Park. The one in Oaklands Park was also sold to Westfield and it still is owned by Westfield now. Interestingly it's not called Westfield Arndale. I suppose they could have ca...

[U/C] Re: WEST (Football Park) | Developments & News

Not sure if it has been mentioned but I have it on very good authority that Kaufland will be taking space as part of this development. Given that there's already a Coles and Woolworths in Westfield next door, and a new Foodland will definitely be built on part of the stadium site, as well as a libr...

That's interesting, I didn't realise that Westfield changed the name back to Arndale.

Maybe Westfield hoped the Kilkenny re-brand would stick, but eventually just gave up and went back to calling it Arndale
I can tell you from my experience with Westfield that's exactly what happened!

This is a mall directory from towards the end of the time Arndale was owned by Westfield.

It was definitely known as Westfield Arndale in the 1990s.

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Don't quote me on this, but I heard a rumour from someone who works at Wooldworths that because of this new Foodland, they won't be renewing their lease in the mall at the end of this year (or next year) whenever it is up for renewal. This would fall in line with comments made about the Wooldworths...

I hope the Golden Grove store doesn't close unless something really exciting were to open instead (like a smaller Kaufland).
Maybe they could also open a 9 level, football stadium size Aldi?

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

The list of restaurants in Rundle Mall Plaza looks very uninspired, considering the expense that went into construction.

I was expecting it to include places that were very different from the numerous food courts in Rundle Mall. Somewhere you could actually have a good quality lunch!

[COM] Re: Armada Arndale (Redevelopment) | $200m

It's had more names and owners than any other centre I've heard of. Originally it was owned by the English Arndale shopping centre company, and called Kilkenny Arndale. Then Westfield Arndale (a bit like Coca-Cola Pepsi that!) Centro Arndale. Then Centro became Federation Centres, and subsequently V...
