Pinjarra Junction Stage 1

Project Description

With substantial growth in population in the Shire of Murray expected between 2006 to 2016, a prime opportunity arose to develop a town centre site to provide the rapidly expanding population with access to national retailers on their doorstep.

Pinjarra Junction Shopping Centre is a medium-scale shopping centre, is anchored by Coles and has 15 specialty stores including food outlets such as Subway, Chooks and a mini-major tenant, The Reject Shop.

Our Role

In order to confirm the long term viability of the development, NS Projects was engaged to carry out a scoping study, with input from a team of expert consultants. This has been verified by strong tenant interest in the completed project.

NS Projects provided management, superintendent and tenancy co-ordination services from project inception through to the centre opening.

  • Recognising the need to protect the visual amenity of the George Street – Murray River historic and tourism precinct.
