Sydney’s Macquarie Centre hot spot

As if to rival the sudden retail successes of Melbourne over the past few years, Sydney’s Macquarie Centre is upping the ante beyond all recognition and playing rival to the likes of the new Emporium Melbourne.

The centre is having a $440 million redevelopment and will open 16 October as home to retailers the likes of MYER and David Jones, of course, rumours suggest H&M‘s first store in Sydney, another four international high street brands, and Uniqlo, which has been officially announced.

With these two and another few that are yet to be announced,  the Macquaire Centre will have the largest number of international high street fashion stores of any Australian shopping centres.

Uniqlo’s Sydney store will stretch across about 1,500 square metres and will house the full line up of Uniqlo apparel with all the bells and whistles of Japanese-come-American retail presence.

With a total trade area of 337,770 people, expected to unleash $6 billion in retail spending by 2021, the north-west corridor is considered the new capital of household wealth in Sydney and by the end of the year, the area will have a new-look shopping centre to match.

When it’s all complete,┬áthe redeveloped Macquarie Centre will be the largest suburban shopping centre in New South Wales, with 138,500 square metres of floor space.
