The $800 million project ranks as the largest redevelopment of a shopping centre in Australia.
Local celebrities, including well-known models Nicole Trunfio and Billie-Jean Hamlet, MasterChef 2021 winner Justin Narayan and R&B artist Adrian Dzvuke, were on hand for the grand opening. Over 60 new stores came on board, notably in The Loop, Ground Level, an urban hub of sporting, streetwear and lifestyle brands.
Managed by AMP Capital for superannuation heavyweight, UniSuper, Karrinyup will debut the final phase of the mega-million reboot on October 7th, increasing the number of stores on site to 290.
As Perth’s premier fashion and lifestyle destination, the spectacular, world class centre will provide more than 2500 new retail, support and management jobs.
Beauty has a major presence in the lifestyle mix. Mecca was the first significant player to open in 2019. Sephora is poised to open its doors over the next few weeks to join Myer, David Jones, The Body Shop, L’Occitane, Jurlique and Priceline Pharmacy.
Koyo Cosmetics, specialising in prestige Korean and Japanese skincare brands such as Shiseido, Sulwhasoo, Mamonde and Etude House, is a highlight. Fragrance fans can indulge their passion at Scents – The Perfume Specialists.
Silk Laser Clinics and Laser Clinics Australia cater for those looking for more in-depth treatments. While Elite Nail Bar and Opal Nails fit the bill for mani addicts.
International fashion and streetwear names include Zara, H&M, Nike, adidas and Coach, together with one of WA’s largest collections of Australian designer names.
We know our customers are looking for a unique retail experience where high quality lifestyle can be found alongside everyday conveniences, says Scott Nugent, AMP Capital’s Divisional Investment and Development Manager.
“This comprehensive mix of fashion, beauty and lifestyle alongside unique food and beverage retailers and leading entertainment venues, will achieve the experience we have been striving to curate at Karrinyup for the past three years. The new-look Karrinyup will be Perth’s go-to hub for shopping, dining and leisure, with an offering not to be found anywhere else.”
