Greenland Australia and GH Australia have confirmed that Woolworths Metro will be the anchor tenant in Stage 1 of Greenland Golden Horse’s mixed-use residential development ‘Park Sydney’, in Sydney’s inner-west suburb of Erskineville.
Woolworths Metro will form part of the Stage 1 retail centre, which will occupy the ground level of Park Sydney’s ‘Cascade’ building (due for completion in mid to late-2020) at which time the new Woolworths Metro is expected to commence trading.
The retail centre will also feature a childcare facility plus food, beverage and lifestyle retail, with approximately 70 basement parking spaces offering 90 minutes free parking and direct access to the centre via travellator.
Greenland Australia’s Managing Director, Sherwood Luo, said that Woolworths Metro is ideal for delivering the vibrant retail mix required for Park Sydney.
“Park Sydney will be a unique integrated community with Stage 1 including 330 apartments and the Woolworths Metro that will cater perfectly to its residents and those in the surrounding area,” he commented.
“The Woolworths Metro will introduce everyday shopping convenience in a smaller format market style that will appeal to all segments of the community, including CBD workers looking for food they can either eat now, on the go, or later, as well as top-ups and emergency shops for families and residents.”
Woolworths Metro General Manager, Justin Nolan added: “We know customers are increasingly looking for conveniently located stores with healthier options and food choices that are relevant to them. Our Woolworths Metro stores are designed to meet these needs.”
“We are delighted to be part of the Park Sydney development in Erskineville and look forward to welcoming customers into Woolworths Metro Park Sydney when it opens in mid to late-2020.”
Park Sydney Village will ultimately offer 10,000 square metres (sqm) of retail amenity, including a 4,000sqm full-range supermarket as part of a future stage, 1,000sqm of specialty shops, multiple lifestyle and food, beverage and dining experiences, with Stage 1 including 1,650sqm of convenience retail, as well as a childcare and medical centre.
The site will also offer secure underground customer parking in both Stage 1 and 2 and an alfresco outdoor dining space that will overlook the adjacent 7,450sqm parkland.
Park Sydney Village is expected to provide everyday shopping experiences to an existing 26,000 resident population in the immediate vicinity and serve more than 35,000 residents in the main trade area by 2026.
