Frasers Property Australia recently unveiled ‘Central’, the first retail offering at its $2 billion Central Park development in downtown Sydney.

The aim is to bring an international flavour reminiscent of stores found in Tokyo, New York and Hong Kong as well as the ultra-modern shopping centres in Singapore.

The 16,000 sqm of retail over five levels is situated within the podium of the One Central Park residential towers on Broadway, which have been designed by French architect Jean Nouvel with the retail spaces conceptualised by The Buchan Group.

Nathan Clark of Colliers International will market the retail space. He says “Central will have a youth focus, be fashion-forward and offer 18 hour trading.”

“Sydney’s southern CBD does not have a retail offering of this calibre despite demonstrable demand and we are very pleased to be able to market the space via an expressions of interest campaign on behalf of Frasers.”

“Central’s contemporary design, feature elements, interactive interiors and character-filled retail outlets will ensure a world-class, standout precinct that will really contribute to the urban village of Central Park.”

The Ground and First Floors will host local fashion and accessories as well as technology, while Level Two and Three will comprise restaurants, visitors, bars and entertainment. Level Four will house the world-class ‘Urban Wellbeing’ health concept which includes a 25 metre in-ground swimming pool situated on a garden terrace.

Construction commenced on Central and One Central Park in December 2010 and Central is expected to officially open in April 2013.
