Announcement: Construction is now underway on the $34 million redevelopment of Castletown that will deliver a new Coles supermarket and specialty retailers, new entry statement, upgraded car parking, improved facilities and a revitalised Playtown.

The Development Application has been approved by Townsville City Council and will create up to 160 jobs during construction and up to 100 new jobs within the centre once the redevelopment works are completed :

Every entrance remains open for easy access, with all your favourite retailers trading as normal.

You’ll notice some temporary changes in the carpark to enable construction and contractor access, however there is still plenty of undercover parking available.

Once complete, the new entrance (pictured above) will be located beside the basement travelator with access also via the Woolcock Street ground level car park. A new lift will also be installed from the basement car park to allow easy access to the new entrance and Coles.

Access into the centre via the travelator (opposite Novo), the Australia Post entrance and the Bank of Queensland entrance all continue to remain open. Playtown remains open alongside favourite brands including Big W, Woolworths, Adairs, Witchery, Lorna Jane and Cotton On. It’s best accessed via the common mall, passing Novo and Typo, on the usual route to the Food Court.

Make sure you say HELLO to Good Morning Coffee Traders, Red Dragon, Origin Kebabs and New Zealand Natural who all continue to trade out of the Food Court.

We will continue to keep you updated as the redevelopment progresses, and we are also very excited about some pending leasing announcements … so stay tuned! We’ll also be rolling out a series of fun, interactive experiences and look forward to announcing these in the months ahead.

As always, we remain committed to creating a place dedicated to the everyday things, the little things that make up a lifetime! From our fresh food offer at Kings Road Market to our fashion, homewares and kids apparel ranges, there’s something for everyone.

Our door is always open, where we reconnect, re-imagine and rediscover every day.
