Construction firm Brookfield Multiplex has been appointed as the contractor by AMP Capital for the $600M Karrinyup Shopping Centre redevelopment in Perth, Western Australia.
When completed, the project will offer space for large international and fashion retailers, food and entertainment venues and 150 housing units, in addition to the current retail offer.
Karrinyup Shopping Centre is managed by AMP Capital Shopping Centres on behalf of its owner, UniSuper.
AMP Capital shopping centres state development manager Scott Nugent said: “The redevelopment of Karrinyup will see the centre expand from 59,715sq m to 113,000sq m, and will surpass all other retail precincts previously delivered in Perth for its range of shops, lifestyle and entertainment options.”
Brookfield Multiplex’s CEO John Flecker said: “We are excited to deliver the next phase of Karrinyup, which will reposition it to provide customers with an unprecedented retail and entertainment experience. AMP Capital has been investing in Western Australia since the late 1800s, and we look forward to investing further in the state.”
The project will create 2,500 construction jobs and additional 2,500 jobs once completed.
