Point Cook Shopping Centre
VicUrban and Walker Corporation created the $150 million Point Cook Town Centre development on a 10 hectare site located 23 kilometres south west of Melbourne’s CBD. The vision for the Town Centre has come to life with a ‘main street’ theme featuring both street-side strip shopping, undercover walkways and a village atmosphere designed to encourage local residents to meet and chat. The Centre also demonstrates high levels of sustainability, energy efficiency and social amenity. The design creates an engaging environment with lively pedestrian spaces, fostering a strong connection between the buildings and the streetscape.
