New Town Centre approved for construction in Chisholm

February 6, 2024

Revelop is proud to announce the Development Application for Chisholm Plaza was recently approved on September 29, 2022. The town centre circa $120 million upon completion, will sit within the new property estate of Waterford by AVID Property Group in Chisholm, Hunter Region, NSW.

Revelop acquired the site in January 2021, and in consultation with Maitland City Council, commenced a complete redesign commissioned to BN Group Architects.

With expected completion for 2024, the town centre will present 15,000m2 lettable area including dual supermarket anchors, 668 parking spaces with a variety of sustainable and convenient options for centre visitors inclusive of; 5 car charging stations, 78 bicycle park racks, dedicated parent & disabled spaces, a mini-bus bay as well as 8 drive-through click-and-collect bays.

Chisholm Plaza will be anchored by major full-line supermarket Woolworths teamed with BWS liquor, as well as a second anchor supermarket, yet to be announced. The state-of-the-art shopping centre will also include over 40 specialty retailers, 112-place early education centre, swim school, gym, medical/allied health care facilities, as well as cafes, restaurants and tavern.

The community of Chisholm have long awaited news of the centre’s redevelopment – the site has stood dormant since 2012. Previous ownership were unable
to generate sufficient tenancy interest in neither supermarket nor ancillary services which left the retail offer lacking quality and variety.

Set in prime position just 35 minutes drive from Newcastle and under 10km from Metford Train station, Chisholm Plaza will service not only the local residents of Waterford; the new master-planned estate boasting modern architecture homes, nature reserves, cycle paths and parks, but also the greater Maitland area in particular residents of Thornton and Chisholm.

Construction is due to commence in April 2023.

“Revelop are so pleased to be delivering this news and committed to the development of the centre, a true milestone for the local community. We had a vast pool of interest in the new centre design and site from numerous supermarket operators, however Woolworths Supermarkets was selected as the preferred major anchor. Delivering the largest supermarket operator in Australia teamed with BWS liquor, ensures the proposed centre will provide the community with the convenience and class they should expect from a local shopping centre.”

“Retail centres form the heart of great communities. They landmark and establish the local meeting place and satisfy, with the right retail mix, both the daily needs and wants of its customers. Through our strategic partnerships with major retailers, we will bring these comforts to Chisholm Plaza with a unique offering we are proud to deliver”
