Woolworths Metro has been confirmed as the anchor tenant for Glenmore Park’s newest shopping centre, with the supermarket expected to open in late 2023.
Woolworths Metro Property Manager Angus Stapleton said the supermarket giant was delighted to be part of the long-awaited development, to be known as ‘Glenmore Village’.
“We are delighted to be part of the Glenmore Park development and excited local residents will have access to one of our newest neighbourhood food stores,” he said.
“We know customers are increasingly looking for convenient and healthy food choices and we will be focusing on creating a store offer that is locally relevant to the Glenmore Park community.”
Woolworths Metro stores are smaller format neighbourhood stores tailored to local customers looking for a convenient walk-up offer.
While the range at Woolworths Metro Glenmore Store is yet to be confirmed, the neighbourhood stores usually offer a mix of high quality locally produced fresh food and everyday pantry staples for customers looking for a quick and easy top-up shop.
The 1,345sqm store will anchor a mixed-use residential, commercial and retail development to be built on vacant land at 90-98 Glenmore Ridge Drive.
It comes as property development firm Beaini announced its recent acquisition of Glenmore Village from property developer Mintus.
“Located in the heart of Glenmore Ridge and Mulgoa Rise, Glenmore Village will boast 145 luxury apartments, over approximately 8000sqm of retail and commercial floor space and is envisioned to be the one-stop destination for dining, services and shopping needs,” Director of Beaini Projects Mickey Beaini said.
“The facilities will be complimented by convenient on-grade and undercover car parking.
“Glenmore Village will be anchored by Woolworths Metro and also include a dining and medical precinct, childcare centre, gymnasium and a variety of specialty retailers providing a modern convenience with a community feel.”
The $47 million project, lodged back in May 2019, was rubber-stamped by the Sydney Western City Planning Panel in August 2020.
Mintus had envisaged a two-year build starting in mid-2021.
Meanwhile, Mulgoa Rise Primary School, to be built next door to the shopping centre, is still scheduled for completion in time for Term 1 2023, though the project is yet to break ground.
