Less than five months from the opening, the new 5,500m2 Tuart Ridge Centre, Baldivis Shopping Centre is almost fully leased.

More than 70% of the shopping centre has been pre-committed with one of Perth’s most renowned IGA operators, and Celebrations Liquor taking pole position.

Situated adjacent to the Makybe Rise Primary School on the corner of Pharlap and Makybe Drive in the Baldivis suburb of Tuart Ridge and catering for a well-established catchment of over 30,000 residents, demand for the shopping centre has been overwhelming.

Whilst being located just 2km from the recently expanded Stockland Baldivis Shopping Centre, the Tuart Ridge Shopping Centre has been well received with anticipation from local residents and Tenant’s alike as a result to its convenient position and access to and from the centre, compared to other centres in Baldivis.

“As there are only a few shops remaining for Lease, we are confident the centre will be fully leased for the centre’s opening in December 2016” Axia Corporate Property Director Adam Musbah said. “The centre’s unique design incorporating a high street with public spaces will provide a vibrant and convenient seven day shopping and dining destination for the local residents. Mr Musbah added.

A call from local residents wanting a shopping centre with ease of convenience and access, within walking distance from their homes, local schools and childcare centre has been instrumental in the development and leasing phase.

Mr Musbah said “We envisage the demand for the balance of the remaining shops to be strong, together with the future trading performance of the centre, on the back of growth of the Baldivis, in particularly, South Baldivis and the call from local residents wanting a convenient shopping destination.

Upon completion the centre will boast a 1,500m2 IGA, over 3,000m2 of specialty shops and a Childcare Centre.
