Wellard Square is a modern dynamic interpretation of the main street model and a transit orientated development. The design ethos creates an environment in which people live, engage with each other and engage with the physical place around them. It is a stimulating streetscape on a pedestrian human scale.
The greenfield Main Street retail development comprises a market-style 3,200sqm Woolworths and 23 specialty tenancies. Linking the retail, the community centre, the railway station and piazza-style meeting area is an active Main Street. It consists of 150 metres of glazed shopfronts offering a mix of shopping, commercial, medical services, and dining options.
The centre pioneers the latest European material technology. Bespoke finishes complement and enhance the granite-paved streets. London Plane trees create a sense of visual interest and richness that is not typical of middle-suburban retail developments. Throughout there is a significant emphasis on design with remarkable attention to detail, functionality and materiality.
