Craigieburn Town Centre project comes to life
Work is underway on a vibrant new $330 million shopping, entertainment and community precinct that will transform Craigieburn into a key regional shopping destination.
The Craigieburn Town Centre development – known as Craigieburn Central – will be home to more than 160 new retailers complete with department stores, restaurants, fresh food market, cinema complex, leisure and entertainment facilities.
The final design of Craigieburn Central merges the best elements of both indoor and outdoor shopping centres, combining ‘main street’ shopping with fully enclosed malls.
Craigieburn Central will also feature landscaped public spaces, meeting places and an exciting new entertainment and leisure precinct.
Craigieburn Central will be built over 50,000 square metres and is located on Craigieburn Road, Craigieburn – a stone’s throw away from the new Hume Global Learning Centre.
What retailers will be located at Craigieburn Central?
More than 160 retailers will be located at the new shopping precinct, providing convenience for families and their day-to-day shopping needs such as groceries, postal services, banking and a selection of non-retail services.
Large supermarket operators Coles and Woolworths will join department stores Target and Big W and other new tenants will be announced by developer Lend Lease in the coming months.
It will also include casual family restaurants, a children’s playground, cinema complex and a new concept in food court dining.

Who is responsible for the project and when will Craigieburn Central be open to the public?
The project is being managed and delivered by developer Lend Lease and is scheduled to open in late 2013, in time for the busy Christmas shopping period.
How will I access the site and will there be new roads?
The site will be accessed from Windrock Avenue which becomes the Main Street of Craigieburn Central. In addition, the site can be entered from Craigieburn Road and Aitken Boulevard which is currently under construction.
Will there be parking on site?
There will be four areas of parking on site with over 2,500 parking spaces.
Will the project be delivered in stages?
At the moment there are only detailed plans for one stage however the owners are proposing a second stage with details yet to be confirmed.
How can I get there and what public transport options are available?
Public buses will take people to the shopping centre from most parts of Craigieburn.
What work is happening on site?
Currently the carparks, roads and buildings have all commenced.
This is necessary to meet the constrained project time lines.
What other works are happening on the precinct?
Road works and services around the Centre are being constructed and there is planning underway for a recreation reserve to the north of the Shopping Centre which will be staged depending on the funding availability.
