Retail development and investment group Spectrum Retail has received development approval for a $15 million convenience centre in New South Wales’ Bathurst region.

The 6,500 sqm site will be tenanted by a 7-Eleven service station, Subway and Red Rooster while fast-food giant McDonald’s will acquire nearly half of the site.

The food and fuel convenience hub will be located just west of Bathurst at the intersection of Bradwardine Road and Mitchell Highway in Robin Hill.

The centre is designed by architectural firm Verve with engineering by VT Consulting Engineers and services by ACOR and Hazkem.

Once completed, the development will be the first convenience centre seen when travelling from West Bathurst to the Mitchell Highway. The centre will also service the growing residential catchment in Bathurst’s North and the industrial hub in the South.

Spectrum said the development will deliver a significant boost for local employment, expected to generate over 500 jobs.

250 of these roles will be undertaken during the development’s construction, while a further 270 ongoing jobs will be created to service the completed hub.

Green lights roll in for Spectrum

Spectrum Retail Group Managing Director, Julian Ackad, said the group are thrilled to be able to move forward with the development and continue investing in community development within New South Wales.

“As post-COVID recovery kicks in, coupled with the continued influx of new residents, the new centre will help drive growth in the region and deliver employment opportunities and lasting benefits to the local Central Tablelands economy.”

Construction on the convenience hub lead by Mainbrace is expected to commence this month, with completion scheduled for June 2023.

Spectrum Retail currently manages a significant development pipeline across Australia’s Eastern Seaboard, worth more than $300 million.

The group developed and manages a $17 million multi-user QSR and fuel site in Coffs Harbour, and recently began construction on a Guzman Y Gomez on Bathurst Road in Orange.

Spectrum are on a roll of green lights, with the group also receiving development approval for an $18.5 million convenience retail centre in Wodonga, Victoria.
