A change is here

Marketown Shopping Centre is pleased to announce a $2.5m upgrade to the western precinct. Works commenced late January 2020 and are almost completed. Due to COVID-19 Government restrictions we are unable to install all of the new seating options as part of the project. We hope that in time, we will be able to complete the project to its full capacity.
 
As of 30th June 2020, you can now see the following changes when visiting Marketown West:
  • New look entry statement visible from King & National Park Streets
  • New & improved Food Court seating area equipped with charging points for various devices
  • A full amenities upgrade of male, female, disabled and parents room facilities
  • An improved outdoor dining precinct with more seating for you to enjoy your meal (where safe to do so)
  • A stage area for live music (entertainment will be implemented when safe to do so) 
  • Doggy parking and water station, located near Harrys Schnitzel Joint
  • Plants. Lots of plants throughout the centre and within the external dining precinct.
This project follows on from previous improvements to the centre undertaken since the acquisition of the shopping centre in July 2017. These include modernising the exterior of the Marketown West building, an improved ticketless parking facility, plus an improved fire emergency system.

This capital project is an exciting milestone for Marketown and upon completion will provide comfortable and modern dining spaces for our customers to enjoy, especially given the last upgrade occurred in 2008 by the previous centre owners. The project has also seen up to 200 workers employed across a range of trades during the program.

Still to come
The project will include mural artwork at both the Coles entry and visible on the new garden beds of the external dining precinct. Marketown is currently working with a lcoal Newcastle artist on this project. We encourage you to follow our Facebook page where we will include any centre news and updates.
