Redevelopment

Werribee Plaza has now undergone several stages of renovations and redevelopments since its opening.

Stage 2

Stage two consisted mainly of the construction of a totally separate building on the west side of the site that would later be connected to the existing centre. With this, Werribee Plaza saw the addition of a Safeway supermarket (now a Woolworths), Big W, Best & Less and what is now a Myer department store (previously Harris Scarfe) and the installation of glass panelling to create an open space feel. Value 40.8M.

Stage 4

Stage four saw the creation of the relocated Kmart store, construction of the food court in the existing building located east end of the centre and the installation of glass panelling above, the re-creation of 4 entrances to suit new centre facade and re-tiling of entire existing building. Value $25M.

Stages 5 and 6

Stages 5 and 6 was an important part of the expansion and included the creation of a new mall to link the existing and new buildings together to create a unified centre. Value $13M.

Stage 7

In 2009, the Victorian state government announced $200M funding for the expansion of Werribee plaza once again.

Although the major redevelopment that is set to almost double the size the centre has been significantly delayed the Wyndham City Council is in the final stages of approval.

Stage 7 is set to contain at least a full-line relocated Myer department store, a third discount department store (expected to be Target), several new speciality stores, new food tenancies, an entertainment precinct (including an expanded Village Cinemas), a gymnasium, a relocated and streamlined bus interchange, relocated library, bingo centre and tavern and at least 2000 new parking spaces
