Fresh food precinct com­ing to Bel­mont

Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - Front Page -

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.

A new fresh food precinct is set to open in Bel­mont Fo­rum.
