Hacer Group has been appointed by Frasers Property Australia as principal contractor to deliver the second stage of Eastern Creek Quarter (ECQ), the large new format retail and showroom precinct coming soon to western Sydney, in a contract valued at approximately $17 million.
ECQ Stage 2 will include approximately 11,300 square metres of large format retail space with up to 20 stores ranging in size from 200 to 2,000 square metres. It will also deliver an additional 340 on-grade parking spaces. The launch of the large new format retail and showroom precinct is scheduled for 2022.
Hacer Group has previously completed Frasers Property’s Burwood Brickworks Shopping Centre in Melbourne, recognised as the world’s most sustainable shopping centre.
Quentin Howell, General Manager NSW, Hacer Group said the company is excited to be involved in the innovative project.
“We are looking forward to partnering with Frasers Property on yet another great project and we’re excited about the commencement on-site,” Mr Howell said.
Matt van Rijswijk, Development Director, Frasers Property Australia, shared that Hacer Group’s appointment is based on the company’s proven track record for delivering high-quality built form outcomes.
“Hacer Group’s proven ability to deliver sustainable outcomes as designed was an important factor in this appointment and given the vision we have for the large format retail offer at ECQ Stage 2, we’re confident Hacer will deliver a built form outcome in keeping with the centre’s sustainable identity,” Mr Edgar commented.
“Eastern Creek Quarter is established as an important local destination for the community, with plenty of convenience retail and dining choices, and the new large-format retail and showroom precinct will create another point of difference for the centre.”
ECQ is a world leader in environmental sustainability, a position recently reinforced by the Green Building Council of Australia, with the 6 Star Green Star Design & As-Built rating for Stage 1 now certified. Stage 1 of ECQ houses a mix of local concepts, quality brands and the unique ECQ Social precinct, with its covered and alfresco seating, outdoor deck, kids play area and large format outdoor digital screen.
