Elara Village Shopping Centre is preparing to open its doors next month, creating more than 250 new jobs and offering an array of fresh food outlets, retail and services in the heart of Elara Marsden Park.
Due to open on Wednesday 24 November 2021, Elara Village Shopping Centre is an 8,181m2 site anchored by a 3,573m2 full-line Coles supermarket and Liquorland and 16 speciality stores.
Community leaders, including Blacktown City Mayor Tony Bleasdale OAM, joined Member for Londonderry Prue Car MP on a hard hat preview tour of Elara Village Shopping Centre as retail tenants prepare to welcome the local community to the new shopping centre.
Mark Avery, Managing Director of Eildon Capital Group (Eildon Asset Management), the owners of Elara Village Shopping Centre, said the new centre had a strong local focus – jobs, shopping, casual dining, retail, services and community.
“Following this year’s lengthy lockdown and COVID-19 closures, the opening of the Elara Village Shopping Centre next month will create a perfect place for the community to shop and re-connect locally with their family and friends.
“The town plaza area with casual dining and key services, along with the Castle Medical family friendly medical precinct with general medical, physio, dental, pathology and radiology, Good Start Early Learning and the Blacktown City Council’s Marsden Park Neighbourhood Centre will provide a much needed community hub within Elara Marsden Park,” Avery said.
Member for Londonderry, Prue Car MP said it was wonderful to see this project near completion and supporting local jobs. “Elara Village Shopping Centre will be a terrific community centre for local families.”
Blacktown City Mayor Tony Bleasdale OAM said Marsden Park is on track for enormous growth, so developments such as Elara Village are vital to cater for current and future residents.
“The new Marsden Park Neighbourhood Centre within Elara Village is a state-of-the-art facility and will provide residents with a new place to meet and take part in various activities,” Mayor Bleasdale said.
The construction of the Elara Village Shopping Centre, which started in August 2020, created around 1,000 direct construction jobs and up to 4,000 indirect jobs. The Elara Village Shopping Centre consultant team include builder Parkview, Leffler Simes Architects, project managers Artro Management and centre management Colliers.
