Amongst the agenda I managed to find a floor-plan for the store, which I'll post with this...

Coles redevelopment of its Norwood supermarket, Norwood Mall and car park stalled?

The number of empty shops in the Norwood Mall has increased. Some traders have already gone and others have relocated (eg Travel Agent to the vibrant Norwood Place opposite).
Some remain in a state of limbo amidst the deserted shops.

A report in Messenger Press suggests that ...
COLES has refused to commit to a start date for its $50 million revamp of Norwood Mall, a year after plans for the upgrade were approved.
And traders say the uncertainty surrounding the project is driving customers away.
NPSP Council has given Coles a 12 month extension.

Several new "pop up" / short lease shops have appeared in the Norwood Mall in recent weeks. This has partially helped to stem the gloom for remaining traders by adding a bit more life to the precinct, but the uncertainty continues.

"Will we ever get the $50 million new (Coles) Norwood Village?

I think the location (towards the rear) opposite James Coke Park and adjacent Edward St is ideal for some residential development to be integrated into a scaled-down proposal. (Supermarket, underground parking, fewer shops/cafés - replaced by apartments). Norwood has an abundance of cafés, restaurants and shops already and I would rather see apartments overlooking the park.

Café culture is more suited to the "passing parade" with alfresco style outdoor areas which complement passing cosmopolitan pedestrian traffic and a mix of shops and local business.

This is a great site. An injection of more residents along the Parade eg the Nuova and Bath Hotel developments, and in this vicinity, would add to the Parade's day/night time population and viability of local business.

Is it too late for a re-think by Coles to go back to the original idea of a mixed development with a residential component?

memory is lame, but didn't the council knock it back?

but still, something needs to be done - it is an eye sore in what should be a prime location.

I had a brief chat with the departing manager of Coles on Monday regarding this development. He said it's still on the cards and should get a start at the end of the year barring any issues. He has seen the plans and mentioned an underground car park and apartments above the shopping centre. He also said it would be great if they included a Liquorland, which is not part of the plan.

Well if that start date is likely they would need to submit some plans and get an approval pretty quickly.

I heard a deal here is imminent. Would be good to finally see some plans and get it underway.

Noticed yesterday (21 FEB) surveyors marking the floor of the mall with spray cans. I guess they were marking where the utilities and conduits are located. Could this be a prelude to site works before demolition?

Hey guys,
I work at Coles Norwood :D Back in January upper management told us that development and store closure was around 12 months away - early 2020. So it's totally possible that surveying and utilities inspections are already underway!
