Just over two years after construction began, Glenmore Village has officially opened to the public.

The centre, located within the Mulgoa Rise estate, was developed and constructed by Beaini Projects, with Director Mickey Beaini reflecting on the journey fondly.

“It’s been a challenging process, but we’ve come to this point, and we have a beautiful product,” he said.

Glenmore Village is anchored by Woolworths Metro, along with another 43 retailers, including an eat street, childcare centre, physiotherapist, post office and medical centre, as well as two gyms, a swim centre, and a pilates studio to cater to the area’s health and fitness enthusiasts.

“The centre has a mix of a whole lot of different services and specialty retailers,” Beaini said.

“It’s got such a great mix, which is an amazing result. You go to some centres, and they’ve got three or four barbers, or two or three nail salons, and we’ve just got the right mix of everybody and the right number too.”

Glenmore Village is also a mixed-use development, with over 100 residential apartments above the ground-floor centre. Residents are set to begin moving in over the coming week.

At Wednesday’s official opening, Badgerys Creek MP Tanya Davies recalled her attendance at the centre’s groundbreaking ceremony back in 2022.

“As the local MP representing this community, I can tell you that we are immensely proud and grateful for you [Mickey] and your family for taking this risk – because it’s not easy being in business these days, particularly construction – and putting your mark on Glenmore Park, leaving us with these magnificent amenities to enjoy for decades to come,” she said.

Penrith Mayor Todd Carney also spoke at the event, noting that with the centre being just a one minute and 23 second drive from his own home, he’s certain he’ll be making good use of it himself.

“This is showing how medium density can be done well around a hub that brings people together around shopping, around cafes, around restaurants, and that’s the important part for us. That’s what we want to see in the Penrith region,” he said.

“I do look forward to coming down here in the mornings, having a coffee, grabbing some lunch. I know I’ll spend a fair bit of time here, especially with the Metro!”

Glenmore Village’s Grand Opening will be held at the centre next Sunday, July 7, complete with rides and activities for the whole family to enjoy.
