It’s the 2nd biggest shopping center in Australia by floor space. But, it’s the biggest shopping center in Australia with 3 discount department stores, Big W, Target and Kmart.
Originally opening in November 1970, the center had been rebuilt and re-opened on 11 March 1980 from the Victorian Governor at that moment, Sir Henry Winneke, using a Kmart and Coles function as significant tenants.
A significant expansion of the complex happened between 2011 and 2012. Accepted by the Town of Casey at December 2007, the expansion featured a brand new two-level 12,000m2 Myer shop, a brand new 4,200m2 Coles shop, in a new place close to the prior BI-LO, using the present shop shell being clubbed with distance for two new small anchor shops, in addition to providing increased retail area for Goal, which increased by 6,884m2 into 8,368m2. David Jones was put to start a shop at the new expansion but declared the contract with Westfield in July 2010, together with Myer substituting David Jones from the growth. David Jones was attempting to depart its contract with Westfield Group since 2003 since Fountain Gate didn’t fit the organization’s plan or target market. Four brand new small anchor retail spaces have been assembled, along with 114 new specialization shop spaces and 1,500 new vehicle parking spaces, with fresh ground-level parking enclosing the center and fresh rooftop parking over the new mall places.
