THE redeveloped Karingal Hub shopping centre is on track to open by the end of this year.
Construction began on the project a little over a year ago. The $160 million project will add new retailers, dining, entertainment, playgrounds, and 650 more free parking spots to the centre.
The centre’s owners ISPT had its plans ticked off in 2018. ISPT retailer services general manager, Sam Curry, said “we have reached a significant number of milestones including the unveiling of our new food court, a refurbished Woolworths store, opening of the new lower ground carpark along with upgrades to our existing internal malls and centre entrances.”
“We are very excited about what is yet to come, delivering a transformed and revitalised Karingal Hub to provide meaningful experiences for our customers and local community.”
Frankston mayor Kris Bolam toured the site last month. He said “everyone wants to know what is going on behind the scenes so it was amazing to tour the site and the project is coming along beautifully. The revitalised shopping centre will be an absolute asset to Karingal. I commend ISPT for investing in our community and encourage other developers to explore the benefits of Frankston City.”
The centre will be home to a Woolworths, Coles, Aldi, and Big W.
