Must admit I hardly ever go to Kuralta Park Shopping Centre - unless driving past. I wouldn't call it a destination shopping centre.

Will be good once castle Plaza receives a facelift - it is looking very tired.

Does any one know what tenants will be moving in - I assume an extra discount department store & maybe a mini major or 2? Best & Less would probably trade well there given the demographics of the area?
Only announcements so far are: Woolworths, Big W and Dan Murpheys.

So, just Woolworths, then. :P

Yep. Good and bad. Atleast it means securing a big development but yes a monopoly.

Is this one of those developements where by Woolworths (through a subsiduary) buys the land, redevelopes it, installs woolworths tenants, then sells it back to the owner/new buyer?

They do that alot these days (I think wesfarmers does it as well, but not to the scale of Woolies).

Woolworths doesn't own the site, they are merely one of the anchor tenants. The owner of both the existing Castle Plaza and the Hills site is Colonial First State.

I always thought by closing both Woodlands Park and Edwardstown Railway stations and having a "South Road Tram Overpass" style on top of the existing Raglan Street railway crossing. It would also open up the Western part of Edwardstown by eliminating a dreaded crossing which is now plauguing the oaklands crossing near Marion shopping centre.

If they proceed with residential development on this site, will they be treating it as a TOD and constructing a train station next to Raglan Avenue?
I take back many of the things I said before 2010; particularly my anti-Rann rants. While I still maintain some of said opinions, I feel I could have been less arrogant. I also apologise to people I offended; while knowing I can't fully take much back. :)

Article in this weeks messenger saying that Colonial first State are still waiting on approval before works can commence. What is taking so long? Has all this focus on rejuvinating the CBD taken too many resources away from BAU tasks? This is ridiculous how long this approval is taking!

Kmart have inked a deal to take over a reconfigured Target space when (more than 'if') the development goes ahead.

And the idea is for Target to move into the new space?

Ooh, Kurralta Park won't be a fan of that. A CBD store arrives, closely followed by Castle Plaza? Ouch.

That is disappointing. That Target is actually quite amazing for anything Home related. I would never set foot in Kmart. Simply put it's all trash.

Any news on this one? I need something to bump up my house price, the groundwater contamination did not help.

Minor renovation works are currently underway.
Southern Entry Statement Renovation Works

Image

Wednesday, February 18, 2015

Following the Centre’s rebrand in August 2014 Castle Plaza will be undergoing a number of upgrade projects throughout 2015. The plan includes entry statement works, refurbishment of the South Road pylon signs, car park landscaping, and the introduction of a car wash in the eastern car park adjacent South Road.

Works have commenced on the first entry upgrade at the southern end of the centre near Coles. The existing structure will be transformed into an inviting, contemporary entry statement with automatic frameless doors, external timber-look (Biowood) cladding. The external floor will be relaid with pebblecrete and new outdoor furniture will be introduced. The renovations are due for completion mid-March when works will begin on the second entry near Foodland.

Castle Plaza has recently completed a number of smaller projects including, converting all mall lighting over to LED; significantly reducing the centre’s carbon footprint. The mall furniture has been replaced with more comfortable lounges/ottomans and recycling bins have been added to the main malls. Designated pram parking has also been introduced and the centre is currently working on plans to install a brand new indoor playground.
