The unveil of the “New” Chadstone Shopping Centre

Vicinity Centres will unveil the first and most significant phase of its $660 million revamp at Chadstone Shopping centre in Melbourne on Thursday.

Over 60 new retail stores, two new dining precincts and a new state-of-the-art HOYTS cinema complex will open tomorrow, with Vicinity also unveiling the first glass gridshell roof in Australia.

At completion of the development in mid-2017, Chadstone will feature close to 600 retailers including luxury designer stores, international retailers and Australia’s only Legoland Discovery Centre.

“Chadstone is already one of the leading shopping centres in the world, and this expanded offer will take the customer experience to the next level,” said Angus McNaughton, CEO and managing director of Vicinity Centres.

Chadstone’s launch day will include over 200 opening day offers and exclusive experiences, music, hundreds of giveaways and celebrity guest appearances from Chadstone’s flagship stores, including Uniqlo unveiling a Japanese-inspired flower wall installation, crafted solely from its current season.

The opening will also see the launch of a pop up concept space offering bespoke experiences for winners of an in-centre competition taking place.
