A host of new tenants are set to open their doors in the new Ed.Square Town Centre, delivering real choice and convenience for the people of western Sydney. Frasers Property has secured leases over approximately 45% of the available 25,000m2 of retail space in stage one of Ed.Square Town Centre, including a full-line Coles supermarket, a Liquorland store as well as a state-of-the-art Event Cinemas complex.
Ed.Square’s shopping and entertainment precinct will be accessed via the Eat Street dining district and its array of culinary choices, while the Town Square will host live entertainment and a children’s water play area.
Among the new food and beverage tenants joining the mix at Ed.Square Town Centre are The Noodle Den, Masala Kitchen, Sushi on Fire and The Shed Café. Additionally, Frasers Property anticipates announcing an exciting new burger concept and a new café/dessert bar next month.
For Western Sydney’s health and beauty needs, coming to Ed.Square Town Centre are MRD Dental, Back in Focus and Blush Nails & Beauty, with a pharmacy, medical centre operator, hair salon, barber, laser clinic, massage and acupuncture specialist, and other health and beauty tenants to be announced shortly. Other shops anticipated to be joining the mix include a newsagent, mobile phone specialist and gym. There will also be an on-site childcare operator, delivering absolute convenience for parents, especially those catching the train to work from the adjacent Edmondson Park train station.
“The exciting range of shops coming to Ed.Square Town Centre will help us deliver on our vision to create a place that draws people from far and wide to enjoy a unique and memorable experience. This won’t just be somewhere to shop, it will be a place to meet up and socialise, to be entertained or simply to relax,” says Tim Moore, General Manager – Retail Leasing, Frasers Property Australia.
“The new tenants we’re preparing to welcome to Ed.Square Town Centre provide a glimpse of the diversity and convenience that will be on offer to residents in the community and visitors from elsewhere in Sydney. The leasing campaign is progressing well with strong interest from a range of high-quality retailers given the number of residents soon to call Ed.Square home,” says Moore.
Stage one of Ed.Square Town Centre is expected to open in the second half of 2020. On completion of stage two, of up to an additional 15,000m2, the development will comprise up to 40,000m2 of retail space with more than 120 shops integrated with a landmark 68-metre high residential tower atop the town centre.
At Ed.Square, Frasers Property has collaborated with world-class architectural firms HDR, GroupGSA and HASSELL to deliver the vision for a 21st century town centre, integrated with 1,884 homes in a mix of apartments, terraces and ‘mews’-style townhouses.
With more than 28,000 new jobs expected to be created in Sydney’s south west between Liverpool, Campbelltown and Badgerys Creek by 2030, Urbis has identified Ed.Square as the single most important mixed-use development in the context of this growth, due to its integration with Edmondson Park train station and its walkability.
Designed as a pedestrian-friendly community, all amenities are within 400 metres of the homes, connecting residents to Ed.Square Town Centre by foot.
The new community will enjoy convenient public transport links. The new Edmondson Park train station provides easy access to Liverpool, Parramatta and Sydney CBD, while the local bus network and Western Sydney Airport will enhance these connections.
