Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Just got my first look at the new Foodland. Not impressed at all that the building still has signs from the early 90s saying "Citi Centre Arcade", and on the entrance doors the signs are new and read "Rundle Square". It's just lazy. As for actual supermarket, not too bad and will serve a valuable r...

[PRO] Re: 10 Anzac Highway | Kaufland Supermarket

Drove past on Anzac Highway yesterday. The whole front facade has been completely removed and the building is unrecognisable. I'd say once they have completed any further necessary preparatory work full demolition will be very fast, as it's basically just a shed without the facade. Seems a bit odd t...

Re: Harbour town $35m upgrade

Woolworths seems to do fine at Harbourtown in the Gold Coast.

[COM] Re: Vicinity Colonnades (Extension) | $52m

Looks good, but one thing I hate is when shopping centres do multiple refurbishments in different styles. Given that Colonnades recently built an extension (Aldi mall) I would like to believe that this and hopefully subsequent upgrades will be to make the rest of the centre match the style of the Al...

[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!

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

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! 😆

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

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.
