Like it or loathe it, Chadstone Shopping Centre is about to enter another expansionary phase which will further solidify its position as Australia's largest. Beyond the planned push to over 215,000 square metres of leasable space, the headline construction note within the upcoming phase will be the delivery of premium office tower fronting Dandenong Road.

With near 16,000 square metres of office space expected, the soon to be under construction commercial building will in due course be joined by an additional tower containing 190 hotel suites. Both towers were covered in a previous Urban.com.au article.

In addition, Stage 40 which centres around an expanded retail offering is also out to construction tender. According to the official website, "The new development proposal represents an investment of over $500 million by its owners, creating significant employment throughout the economy for the broader community (2,700 direct jobs during construction and 2,200 ongoing)."

Currently six major builders are in the running, although Probuild may have the upper hand given they have delivered a variety of expansion projects for the centre over a 15 year period.
