MANDURAH FORUM FIRST STAGE OPENS
First Stage of $350 million refurbishment and redevelopment of Mandurah Forum opened on 27 July 2017. Included in this stage were about 60 specialty tenants, Target, the fresh food market hall, and a new pedestrian entrance facing Mandurah Road.
Rowe Group assisted Vicinity Centres by obtaining the planning approval in 2015. Rowe Group were able to work with the Department of Planning and the City of Mandurah to fast track the approval process from what might have been a 2-3 year period down to a 4 month period, thereby enabling additional private funding for road infrastructure upgrades and early construction. Construction commence in early 2016, creating an estimated 1000 jobs. It is expected that a further 700 ongoing retail, hospitality and service jobs will be created as a result of the completed development.
