Fresh food precinct coming to Belmont
BELMONT Forum’s $65 million refurbishment is nearing completion, with new stores and facilities set to open in the coming months.
The new Coles is scheduled to open on Wednesday, March 7, and more specialty stores, more rooftop parking – with lift and travelator access into the centre – and a fresh food precinct will also be added to complete the redevelopment project, which started in late 2016.
During 2017, Belmont Forum welcomed new arrivals such as Cotton On, Bed Bath N Table, Novo, Michael Hill, Pandora, Transit, Bras N Things and Connor, joining earlier newcomers Aldi, JB Hi Fi Home and Best & Less.
Many existing retailers stayed with Belmont Forum, with Betts opening a new store, Sunglass Hut moving from its kiosk to a larger store and Miss Maud moving to a new location opposite Coles with a new cafe.
The internal and external upgrade continues with a full refurbishment, including significant interior mall upgrades and facade improvements, and more carparking bays have been added.
Belmont Forum’s new dining precinct opened in April.
Perron Group senior asset manager Graeme Glass said the changes at Belmont Forum were significant in order to meet the evolving needs of the local community.
“We’re very excited that we’re now entering the final phase of the project and that the overall refurbishment to date has been positively received by people living and working in the City of Belmont,” he said.
