The largest and fastest growing area in Victoria, Lang recognised the potential for growth years before it occurred. This inspired the idea for a contemporary town centre activated by a large-scale retail and lifestyle precinct that would meet the future needs of the suburb.
We partnered with VicUrban to construct the $150million town square featuring buildings that harness green technologies and cutting edge energy efficiency across a 12.5 hectare. Split into four segments the retail and lifestyle precinct is divided by two laneways that run the full length and width of the entire block.
The clever part of the project is our mixed-use approach and carefully considered design which represents a high street theme; featuring side-street shopping with undercover walkways and a village atmosphere with café and eateries, encouraging residents to come together, shop and socialise.
Point Cook Town Centre comprises 150 retail stores, has two supermarkets, a discount department store and traditional department store, with 1,300 car spaces – 750 of which are undercover with direct access to the shops. Today, the town centre services more than 60,000 Wyndham households and attracts 100,000 visitors per week.
Underpinning the success of this project are the various lifestyle facilities incorporated throughout the precinct, used daily by local residents. These a childcare centre, medical centre, and $6.6 million community learning centre; comprising the public library, learning rooms, community kitchen, kindergarten, and Maternal and Child Health Consulting Rooms.
Point Cook is located 25 kilometres south-west of Melbourne CBD, in the government area of the City of Wyndham. Approximately 30 minutes’ drive away, along the Princes Freeway. Known as the homeland of the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF).
