Charter Hall yesterday told the Daily Liberal of its investment in Dubbo Square, located in the city’s main street.
It was undertaking a $500,000 upgrade to its outdoor car park.
Local contractor Maas Civil Pty Ltd had been engaged to complete the works, needed because of general wear and tear of the car park surface and tree root damage, the company advised.
The project is visible from the outside, but Charter Hall also has plans for the interior of the shopping centre.
It reported it had started a $1.5 million air conditioning upgrade using local sub-contractors and due for completion in late October.
Charter Hall centre manager Shane Barr said the property group was committed to the ongoing development of Dubbo Square, and that work on the car park was “the first stage of a number of upgrades we have initiated for the centre”.
“Dubbo Square is an important centre for Charter Hall and the local area, and through these refurbishment works we are committed to creating an enhanced shopping environment for the local community,” he said.
Dubbo Square is home to Coles, Target and 36 specialty stores.
Charter Hall owns and manages more than 81 neighbourhood and sub-regional shopping centres across Australia.
It bought the centre at Dubbo in November 2012, changing its name from Centro Dubbo to Dubbo Square.
The car park improvements include removal and regrading of the existing surface to provide a safer environment for customers.
Charter Hall advised customers to take note of directional barrier fencing in place while the works were being completed.
