With its live entertainment, a waterplay area, fresh food market, buzzing Eat Street and Event Cinemas, Ed.Square Town Centre will be a fun place to be. Frasers Property Australia has now announced new tenants for the community’s health, medical and wellbeing offer, ensuring it will also be a healthy place to visit. Chemistworks, Myhealth Medical Centre and Anytime Fitness have all signed on the dotted line to be part of the retail mix in South West Sydney’s game-changing new urban community.
In Chemistworks and Anytime Fitness, Ed.Square Town Centre delivers high-quality gym and pharmacy operators, both essential to the community’s social infrastructure, while Myhealth Medical Centre will provide on-site access to GPs and a range of medical services to local residents and the broader region.
Frasers Property has previously announced that MRD Dental and Back in Focus will be part of the health and wellbeing offer. The company has also confirmed that a massage and acupuncture specialist, sporting goods retailer, pathology and childcare operator will be among the Stage 1 tenants, offering families real convenience and a range of services promoting healthy, active lifestyles.
The new tenants bring further colour to the holistic community picture being painted at Ed.Square, says Tim Moore, General Manager – Retail Leasing, Frasers Property Australia. Moore said “Ed.Square Town Centre will be the new community’s central meeting place and as the leasing campaign progresses, the local character of the new shopping centre is taking shape.”
“With Chemistworks, Myhealth Medical Centre and Anytime Fitness all opening next year in the new community, the Ed.Square Town Centre identity is being defined. It makes sense for the centre to offer a range of health and wellbeing services in a comfortable natural environment, as the community’s leafy atmosphere and connections to nature are what will set it apart. We’re focused on ensuring the residents who live at Ed.Square, as well as visitors from across Western Sydney, can enjoy real choice and convenience in the most comfortable, sustainable environment imaginable”, he said.
Stage 1 of Ed.Square Town Centre will comprise approximately 25,000m2 of retail space, with residents set to enjoy the convenience of a full-line Coles supermarket, a Liquorland store as well as a state-of-the-art Event Cinemas complex. It is expected to open in the second half of 2020. On completion of Stage 2, of up to an additional 15,000m2, the development will comprise up to 40,000m2 of retail space with over 120 shops.
At Ed.Square, Frasers Property has collaborated with world-class architectural firms HDR, GroupGSA and HASSELL to deliver the vision for a 21st century town centre, integrated with 1,884 homes in a mix of apartments, terraces and ‘mews’-style townhouses.
With more than 28,000 new jobs expected to be created in Sydney’s South West between Liverpool, Campbelltown and Badgerys Creek by 2030, Urbis has identified Ed.Square as the single most important mixed-use development in the context of this growth, due to its integration with Edmondson Park train station and its walkability.
Designed as a pedestrian-friendly community, all amenities are within 400 metres of the homes, connecting residents to Ed.Square Town Centre by foot. The new community will enjoy convenient public transport links. Edmondson Park train station provides easy access to Liverpool, Parramatta and Sydney CBD, while the local bus network and Western Sydney Airport will enhance these connections.
Ed.Square is in one of Australia’s fastest growing areas in Sydney’s South West and is part of the South West Priority Growth Area identified by the NSW Government. Frasers Property is targeting a 6 Star Green Star Communities rating from the Green Building Council of Australia for Ed.Square.
