The first stage of a $200 million redevelopment program at Westfield Chermside opened on 19 October 2006. The centre has increased from 78 000 sqm to 110 000 sqm in gross area with a further 12 400 sqm to be added with the arrival of David Jones in August 2007. On completion of this stage Westfield Chermside will be Queensland’s largest shopping centre. The redeveloped centre has included an open-space market square area surrounded by an alfresco dining area comprised entirely of polished concrete.
Manly Concrete was commended on their individual efforts and support for the very successful delivery and opening of the project.
“The opening day was a great success, and the complimentary speeches from Mr Stephen Lowry and Mr Bob Jordan at the opening should be passed on to all those involved on just how good the Centre looked from a standard of quality and design benchmark which was delivered on the day.” Allan Robertson, Senior Project Manager
