$150 million Narellan Town Centre expansion to rival western Sydney’s biggest malls

AFTER six years of planning and design, work has started on the $150 million expansion of Narellan Town Centre in Sydney’s southwest.

The expansion will make the town centre a rival to many of western Sydney’s major shopping centres, including next-door neighbour Macarthur Square.

Part of the expansion includes a skybridge over Camden Valley Way which will connect the old and the new buildings together.

Buchan Group principal Anthony Palamara, who has played an important role in shaping the centre’s design, said he was extremely proud of what was to come.

“We’ve worked very hard to push the design edge as far as we could,” he said. 

“Externally the bridge and it’s two entry lobbies and sweeping green form of the facade will create a gateway landmark which embraces a restaurant precinct and civic plaza which we envision to become the new heart of the Narellan community.”

Mr Palamara said he was eager to see the final product which is expected to be completed by mid-2017.

“We’re very excited. Until the first slab of concrete is poured or first piece of steel is erected, the design is just drawings on paper ... but we’re very happy to see the construction works commencing and looking forward to seeing our designs realised.”

The construction is being lead by Dart West Developments.

Centre manager Brad Page said the skybridge, which will connect the two buildings over Camden Valley Way, was one of the pinnacles of the centre’s “extraordinary design”.

“We wanted to take pedestrian traffic off Camden Valley Way,” he said.

“It was vital to have shops on either side of the bridge so you don’t feel as if you’re going from one building to another ... that was a very important design aspect.

“We’re also really excited about the restaurant precinct which has been designed very well.”

Mr Page said he could not wait to see the final product which was a “necessary” piece of infrastructure for Narellan.

“Our carpark is full all day, every day. We’re currently not catering for our customers. That’s why we need this,” he said.
