Rhodes Central has now opened its doors, providing the community with a new destination for fresh food, quality dining options and a fantastic array of popular retail stores.
The Rhodes Central shopping centre is now home to more than 55 shops and services, including the area’s only Woolworths supermarket, health and wellness services, plus Bamboo Lane – a destination dining precinct inspired by the colourful hawker lanes from Shanghai to Singapore.
The retail strategy was developed and executed by Rook Partners: “This new shopping hub provides the Rhodes community with much-needed authentic hospitality options, and reflects the diverse background of the community it serves,” said Adam Sheumack from Rook Partners, who has been working with the developer, Billbergia, on this project since 2018.
This once industrial precinct is now a vibrant multicultural suburb. With over 1,500 people recently moving into Billbergia’s newest residences and over 12,000 people now living within walking distance of this new shopping centre.
This project adds to Rook Partners’ extensive experience in delivering vibrant mixed-use projects that transform neighbourhoods.
“We are proud to leverage our expertise across similar mixed-use precincts to tailor a unique mix of tenants customised to the local customers,” says Sheumack.
The diverse mix of retailers includes Woolworths, BWS, McDonald’s, Zetciti Supermarket, Lilong Taste of Shanghai, Yasaka Ramen, Komatsu, Costi Seafoods, CoCo Tea, SushiDon Junction, Madam Pho, Cho Express, Lab Bakery Cafe, Ho’me Kids Cafe, Top Impression Bakery, Spicy Joint, BBQ Master, Two Peck, Leaf Cafe, Fresh & Hot Malatang, Auvers Cafe, Function Physio, Optimal Health Medical Centre, Cincotta Discount Chemist, Miyoung Skin Clinic, Trinity Dental, X-Active and more.
