We’ve been creating real places for real people in Australia since 1924, from warm family homes to dynamic spaces for commerce and business.
Over those years we’ve built a strong reputation as one of Australia’s most successful and diversified property groups. We’re applying the best of our experience and history to the retail landscape at a time when the traditional bricks- and-mortar model is changing rapidly.
Our experience in community spaces has taught us that retail is more than just shopping. For us, a well-planned centre will always have a place in people’s lives.
This is why we believe technology should never replace the warmth of a real exchange between shop owner and customer, it should only enhance it.
It’s also why a retail centre should be a cornerstone of the community it belongs to. Indeed, every space we create must result in life’s best experiences as people connect in memorable places.
For that, we must break out of the sameness in retail design to create mixed-use lifestyle centres that are community-orientated alternatives to the main street.
We think the future is with retail spaces that are small enough to be familiar, but large enough to be exciting, offering the authenticity of a vibrant high street combined with the range of a major centre.
To us, that’s the difference.
