Developer Consolidated Properties had the official opening of its Casuarina Village Shopping Centre, which is a full house after surfwear retailer Rip Curl secured the final tenancy in the precinct.

Rip Curl, which signed a lease for a 144 sqm space with an expected July open, adds to Casuarina Village's line up of retailers that includes cafes and restaurants, doctor’s surgery, bottle shop and a travel agency. 

The $25-million centre also includes a 2,500 sqm market-style Coles, the only full-line supermarket in the Salt Village/Casuarina residential and resort precinct.

Tweed deputy mayor Gary Bagnall, Member for Tweed Geoff Provest and Member for Richmond Justine Elliot and Consolidated Properties executive chairman Don O'Rorke went on a tour of Casuarina Village.

"Casuarina Village has had an extremely successful first few weeks of trade, vindicating our decision to create a dedicated retail hub for the Casuarina township," O'Rorke said.

Member for Tweed, Geoff Provest, said the Casuarina Village Shopping Centre had created around 220 jobs during the development stage, while the 100 ongoing, long-term jobs within the centre would benefit the local community.

"I think particularly looking at the local economy relying on tourism and retail, this centre adds so much value and is especially great for the locals who already love the new services they can access right on their doorstep," said Justine Elliot, Member for Richmond.

Casuarina Village was developed by Casuarina Beach developer Consolidated Properties along with capital partners CVS Lane Capital Partners.

The centre is on the corner of Grand Parade and Casuarina Way, which links the north and central residential villages of Casuarina Beach, and also provides a direct connection to the adjoining $1 billion Salt Village community.

"I've lived in Casuarina for 13 years and I've always loved it here, but now it's even better because I can shop locally instead of having to drive to Kingscliff or Cabarita," said local resident Lisa Burgess.
