As part of the strategic plan, KPA was involved in the overall design of the site which, when completed, contained new access roads to enable easy access to the centre, the installation of traffic lights on Old Coast Road and the creation of a number of fast food outlets also fronting Old Coast Road.
Following the preparation of the strategic plan, KPA designed the Shopping Centre, including a Woolworths Supermarket and 17 specialty shops, as well as a medical suite. KPA was the Project Architect for this development from sketch design stage, until the completion of the construction phase. The architectural design incorporated Colorbond roofs to the entry statements and verandahs, and the incorporation of timber look panelling to the external facades. The design intent was to reduce the overall scale of the development, resulting in a laid back, beachside aesthetic, typical of a holiday town or seaside village.
The site for a Shopping Centre wrapped around an existing Liquor Store building which was retained in the development and due to the high water table in the area some interesting drainage solutions were employed to contain the stormwater, away from the existing building.
