Fashion Spree officially opened its brand new factory outlet centre at a 14,500sqm building in Liverpool in Sydney’s southwest. Doors from Kings Roller Grilles and Shutters (KRGS) were installed in the fitout to help secure the new multi-brand shopping destination.

The long-term project of family-owned real estate investment company, GazCorp, Fashion Spree sits on a 160,000sqm site a stone’s throw from Westfield Liverpool and features over 50 retail brands as well as food and beverage retailers. Fashion Spree marks the outlet debut in Sydney for 13 brands, including Bardot, Supre, Factorie, Forecast, Vans and Original UGG Australia. Food retailers at Fashion Spree include Sahara Grill, Hokka Hokka, Sushiru, Boost Juice and two local cafes.

Fashion Spree joins Sydney’s two other existing dedicated factory outlets, Mirvac’s Birkenhead Point Outlet Centre and DFO Homebush at Sydney Olympic Park.

Fashion Spree was the long-time vision of the late Nabil Gazal, whose sons and GazCorp directors, Nicholas and Nabil Jnr, have seen the project through to fruition. Considerable renovations were done to transform the building from a market hall to a well-presented factory outlet with modern finishes.

Establishing Fashion Spree was the first step in a broader, five-year plan by GazCorp to build a multi-purpose retail precinct on the 160,000sqm site. GazCorp’s broad plan is to develop the land at the rear of the property, relocate the large format retail centre there, then renovate the existing, street-facing Megacentre property, which would then be an ideal location for a supermarket and discount department store, most likely a Coles and a Kmart.
