A renovation to the food court at Australia Fair shopping centre in Southport, which started in January, has been completed.

The renovation to the central food court area, which not been renovated since 1995, was stage one of its $25 million-dollar revitalisation project.

The cafeteria-style layout has a new floor plan featuring a mix of lounge style bench seating, high bars, upgraded amenities and pendant lighting.

Australia Fair general manager Ramon Otten said works to the were the most recent in a major phase of the centre’s redevelopment project, which also includes a revitalised Scarborough Street entrance, ground floor concourse and new-look Coles.

“Following on from the successful redevelopment of Coles, together with the Scarborough Street entrance and ground floor concourse, we are excited to unveil the next stage of Australia Fair’s revitalisation, being the new-look central food court,” Otten said.

“The transformation will see customers enjoy a selection of international dining options, from fresh salads, sushi and Vietnamese, as well as new furniture and facilities, as the iconic Broadwater facing food court becomes a modern dining precinct that exudes a strong coastal ambience with a contemporary new-look.”

Otten said a variety of bench seating and phone charging stations have been installed as part of the revitalised food court’s new offerings, in addition to Free Wi-Fi, now available throughout the precinct, and four large televisions, set to air Foxtel.

The ceilings of the food court have been replaced with new plasterboard and feature battens, while the amenities have also received a cosmetic refurbishment including new tiling, partitions and fixtures.

Otten said feedback from shoppers on the new Scarborough Street frontage, Coles Australia Fair and the ground floor concourse had been ‘extremely positive’, following its official unveiling in November last year.

“Stage one of the revitalisation project has already been extremely well-received by our shoppers, who have provided positive feedback on the new look and feel to this part of the Centre,” he said.

“We have carried on the same vibe through to the new-look food court, which will also complement our popular alfresco dining precinct, Australia Fair Metro.

“This is in line with our commitment to improving the Centre’s overall customer experience.”

Other new food tenancies that have recently joined include Vintage Grind, Uncle Bills, Stellar Vietnamese Street Food and U Grill.
