Tran Veggies for Home Base
FORMER Station Street Markets grocer Tran Veggies will open a gourmet fresh food market at Home Base early next year, says Home Base general manager Gino Premici.
Mr Premici said long-term tenants Needham Air and Watershed would move to newer spaces at the centre to make way for a 700sq m market called Grower’s Lane.
“It is going through Council at the moment, and they are hoping to open in February or March,” he said.
“They’re bringing in services like a baker, butcher, seafood shop and pre-made meals within the store and will be open seven days a week.
“Construction mode should start in midNovember.”
Mr Premici said the recently completed Roydhouse Street apartments were an incentive for Home Base to offer more services to assist nearby residents, including a hand-wash car wash.
“The designs are looking spectacular, the Tran Veggies team are really excited,” he said.
“It’s going to be something very different to what they had at the Station Street Markets, but still with that great fresh food offering.”
After 31 years in Subiaco, the Station Street Markets closed on July 26.
The Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority approved a $96 million Coles-Target shopping precinct at the market site in April, which is currently under construction.
