Go west: Kaufland set to build West Lakes supermarket

German supermarket giant Kaufland has revealed plans for a third outlet in Adelaide’s west – weeks after they scrapped plans for Munno Para.

German supermarket giant Kaufland is set to open a store in the west as part of a major redevelopment of Football Park.

Development firm Commercial & General on Monday confirmed Kaufland would be part of the $120 million residential development at West Lakes, named WEST.

The 4000sq m supermarket will be built at the corner of West Lakes Boulevard and Turner Drive and form part of a community and shopping area to be known as Charles St.

A development application for the supermarket was lodged last week.

Commercial & General executive director of communities Chris Menz welcomed the news Kaufland would be part of his firm’s development.


He said it was one of “Europe’s largest brands and prides itself on being a one-stop destination for everyday needs” and believed it would be “a real bonus” for the development.

A new $11 million Charles Sturt Council library will also be built nearby, including a community space and kitchen.

A landscaped plaza and cafe will connect the library building to the Football Park oval.

Business and commercial tenancies will be built above, including for medical and health purposes.

The five-storey complex will have 108 private rooms, 17 retirement living apartments overlooking the oval and an 18-bed specialist unit for patients suffering from dementia.

The Kaufland announcement came after the German supermarket chain earlier this month shelved plans to build a $24 million store at Munno Para.

No reasons were disclosed for the change but traffic management issues are understood to have played a role, with Curtis Rd becoming one of the most congested roads in the north.

The change left a $8.2 million hole in Playford Council’s budget.

Kaufland has already announced supermarkets at Prospect and Forrestville.

I'm all for a new library but I am hoping it has a decent Local History section like the Port Adelaide library and almost every other metro library I have visited. Charles Sturt Council has very limited local history information on their website also so a good local history room / study area would be very welcomed I think especially with the "oldies" being next door.

Also, what does this mean will happen to the old library buildings closer to the lake?
