Construction will start in October on a $12 million new shopping centre in Adelaide’s Penfield, and will include a new Foodland store, which will be Drakes Supermarkets’ 37th in South Australia.

Planning approval for the new centre was granted in July. 

The 2,600 sqm Foodland store at Eyre Village will including a full grocery offering, fresh and organic produce and Home Meal Solutions. The new store is expected to employ 150 people. 

The 1.3 hectare Eyre Village is part of AVJennings’ Eyre residential development and will house up to 10 speciality stores for which a leasing campaign is already underway. 

Upon completion, Eyre will have around 2,000 new homes, and nearly 5,000 residents. In addition, there will be recreation places and sports fields.

AVJennings state manager Brian Virgo said work starting on Eyre Village was a sign of confidence in the development. 

“Eyre is progressing well with the community growing rapidly, new homes under construction and work well underway on the creation of new parks and gardens within the development,” said Virgo. 

“Shopping at Eyre Village will add to the high level of amenity and convenience offered to residents living at Eyre, Penfield and the surrounding suburbs.” 

Intrepid Property’s Craig Feely, who is managing the leasing at Eyre Village, said the centre’s location will make it a big draw with residential communities. 

“Commercial tenancies range from 45 up to 400 square metres with leasing opportunities suiting a medical centre, pharmacy, café, takeaway food outlets and hair or beauty salons.” 

Eyre Village is due to open in May 2017.
