Located in the rapidly growing Moreton Bay region, MKT Square’s stage two master planned multi-million-dollar transformation is nearing completion, offering retail and hospitality operators far and wide the opportunity to be part of the growing market.
The energetic retail hub for locals will boast a new full-line 3850sqm market-style Coles supermarket, a modern designed Coles precinct, new specialty stores, and internal and external architectural design concepts.
This adds to the already established offering of a full line Woolworths supermarket, Dan Murphy’s Liquor Store, Choice Discounts, as well as a medical precinct anchored by Smart Clinics, IQ Radiology, Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology and Snap Fitness. Plus, there are over 40 specialty stores, a food court, cafes, restaurants, takeaway eateries, casual dining, and a new Play & Learn Child Care Centre.
The addition of Coles supermarket will make MKT Square the only neighbourhood shopping centre in the Moreton Bay region to offer both a Woolworths and Coles, giving locals a one-stop-shop and the ultimate convenience.
Mintus Properties, the master developer behind Southeast Queensland’s MKT Square Deception Bay, together with architects ThomsonAdsett and project builders Mainbrace Constructions, are transforming the centre and expanding the offering to provide more variety to residents in the rapidly growing Moreton Bay region.
Due to be completed in mid-2023, the re-development will offer prospect businesses the opportunity to be part of the growing local market with retail spaces soon becoming available for fresh food, takeaway, and service-based retail operators.
As part of stage one completed in 2019, ThomsonAdsett prioritised several design drivers that have continued through to the design of the overall master plan. This included the creation of spaces that are functional, pleasant, and responsive to the community’s needs by providing unique retail offerings, improvements to external façade upgrades, landscaping, street trees and shade trees, pedestrian shopfront walkway and a softened interface with the streetscape.
The purpose-designed undercover six-bay Click & Collect drive-through, new façade treatments, lighting, and architectural features.
“The addition of the Coles supermarket to the centre, which already features Woolworths and Dan Murphy’s presents an amazing opportunity for our existing and new retailers to position themselves next to one of the only dual anchored neighbourhood centres in the area,” says Mintus Properties Director – Retail and Residential Ben Stewart.
“Our continued investment in MKT Square Deception Bay shows the commitment we have to the centre and the local area.”
