23 November 2011 – Wollongong Central shopping area will be extended including more food stores and 80 specialty shops in a $200 million investment by the GPT Wholesale Shopping Centre Fund.

Matthew Faddy, fund manager for GWSCF said: “The 18,000 square metre West Keira extension of Wollongong Central responds directly to the needs of this community by addressing a significant undersupply of food retail in Wollongong’s city centre.”

“Giving the green light to this significant investment, along with the fund’s $30 million refurbishment of Wollongong Central’s north building in 2009, signals investor confidence in the Wollongong CBD market.”
