What is driving the proposed expansion of Mt Ommaney?

For 35 years Mt Ommaney has served the community and we know that the community is looking forward to an improved, modern centre.

Over the past few years our broader community has voiced a strong desire for a cinema and ambient dining precinct along with an improved retail offer that better reflects their needs and wants.

 

What will the proposed expanded centre offer customers?        

Currently anchored by major retailers Coles, Woolworths, Aldi, Kmart, Target and Big W, our exciting vision for Mt Ommaney will see a new purpose-built community hub as well as a new entertainment and leisure precinct with a modern, state of the art cinema complex.

These changes have been proposed to the existing centre to help meet the needs of the growing community in and around Mt Ommaney – the entertainment and leisure precinct offers a complete lifestyle and dining experience which will be unique to the area.

The development application also proposes the integration of the existing council library into the centre and the creation of a new purpose-built community hub that will replace the aging community building on Dandenong Rd.

Works will also include an improved bus interchange and an increase in the free parking options available at the centre.

 

Will there be changes to car parking as a result of the proposed expansion?

We are pleased to let you know that the proposed development will be increasing the number of free, easy and secure parking options for our visitors.

 

What are the proposed changes to the Community Centre?

Our development plans include the closure of the existing community centre and temporary relocation of the facility to another location within the shopping centre. 

This is required during construction of the proposed works and creation of a new, purpose-built community centre.

We are working closely with local council and our stakeholders and will share further details in coming months, including the temporary location of the community centre.

We appreciate your patience through this process and can’t wait to share with you the new community centre once development works are completed.

 

What retailers and brands will be part of the proposed expansion?

We are looking forward to sharing with you in the future what the new dining and entertainment experiences we’ll be bringing to Mt Ommaney.
