Burwood Brickworks is one of Melbourne's most premium infill sites, located approximately 19 kilometres from the Melbourne CBD. The 18 hectare site presents a rare opportunity to transform a significant blank canvas in an established suburb into a brand new mixed use urban village.
The vision for Burwood Brickworks is to create the world’s most sustainable retail centre using the Living Building Challenge™ as the framework. This means creating a retail centre that gives more than it takes, one that is self-sufficient, does not exceed the resources of its location and contains socially equitable, culturally rich and ecologically restorative spaces that connect people to light, air, food and community. Upon completion, the ambitious 13,000m2 centre will include a 4,200m2 full line Woolworths, 1,400m2 Dan Murphy’s, 6 screen Reading Cinemas and Australia’s first rooftop Urban Farm within a shopping centre environment.
The retail mix is projected to align to the aspiration of the greater development vision for sustainability, uniqueness and the delivery of heart & soul to the community through fitouts, commodity, sourcing, presentation and overall retail offering. To support our retailers in their fitout design and build we’ve created Greensheet, a handy list of highly sustainable building materials.
An opportunity exists for tenants to capture a trade area consisting of an ethnically diverse, mature and affluent population, with household structures typical of that of metropolitan Melbourne. Total resident main trade area retail spending is above the Melbourne average, with noticeable growth forecast in food catering and food, liquor and grocery.
