Westfield Kotara’s $160m transformation will be revealed this month when it opens to the public. 

Part of the shopping centre revamp includes a new youth and urban precinct and 30 new and relocated speciality stores. 

The new precinct will cater to the youth and young adult shoppers and will feature a diverse mix of new and existing retailers, including SK Menswear, Espresso Warriors, W Hair Bar and YD. 

In addition, Connor, EB Games, Tree of Life, JB Hi Fi, Universal Store, Hype DC, Surf Dive n Ski, Carla Swimwear, Johnny Bigg, Jeanswest, Platypus, Mr & Mrs Jones, and Angus & Coote will also open. 

“It’s been 12 months in the making, and I’m thrilled to announce our new precinct and a selection of new and well-loved retailers, will open on 18 October,” centre manager Sarah Sylvester said.

The opening of the new precinct will be immediately followed by a string of additional retailer arrivals across Level 2 as the existing centre’s premium fashion remix evolves. New retailers to follow include first-to-market Zara, Kmart, Gorman, and The Academy Brand. 

Up on Level 3, Westfield Kotara will also unveil its expansion of The Rooftop and car park extension later this year. 

Westfield Kotara will celebrate the grand opening of its new precinct with a jam-packed, four-day schedule of festivities right across the centre, from October 18. 

From 9am there will be live music, entertainment and pop-up bars. Kids activities, including face painting, giveaways and more family friendly things to do.
