Ed.Square has announced that Coles will anchor its community shopping precinct to serve the new town centre and also meet a need often expressed by residents of surrounding Edmondson Park.
The Coles full-line 4181-square-metre supermarket and 166-square-metre Liquorland have been announced as the first retailers committed to the new Frasers Property community.
The shopping precinct will integrate with an entertainment area accessed via the Eat Street dining district and the town square will have live entertainment and a children’s water play area.
It’s a contemporary urban atmosphere that serves as an extension to residents’ homes, Frasers’ Peri Macdonald said.
“Our super-neighbourhood shopping centres are created for locals who call the area home.
“By understanding their needs, and the needs of the broader catchment, we create centres that become a destination for people to spend time and be entertained, not just shop.”
Coles’ Orlando Rodriguez says Coles was committed to the south-west community. “We’re really looking forward to creating new jobs and bringing local residents a new Coles supermarket at Ed.Square,” he said. “We’re also looking forward to incorporating several new green initiatives into the store which will reduce our environmental footprint in the community, such as LED lighting, solar panelling and new energy-efficient refrigeration.
”We’ve already opened three concept Coles supermarkets in the past 12 months and created more than 300 new jobs at our nearby stores in Narellan, Denham Court and Ingleburn.”
The Coles at Ed.Square is due to open in early 2020, coinciding with the completion of the first retail stage and the community’s first residents.
A childcare centre with up to 140 placements will be at the northern end of the town centre next to the train station, making it easy for parents to pick up and drop off kids.
The town centre will be integrated with 1882 homes in a mix of apartments, terraces and mews-style townhouses.
