 Port Central

Project Type: Refurbishment

Client: Commercial Property Group Pty Ltd
 

Location: Hay St, Port Macquarie
 

Port Central shopping centre in the heart of Port Macquarie's CBD was constructed in 1995.

The shopping centre adjoins a State listed and a locally listed heritage item, is in the vicinity of another State listed heritage item and adjoins a State listed archaeological site that is within the Glasshouse.

The shopping centre was a controversial development for its time as it required the closure of a section of Hay Street between William and Clarence Streets to allow for the construction of the southern and northern pedestrian entries to the complex.

The client's proposal, which was prepared by Woodman Architects on behalf of Gowing Bros. Ltd, was for the refurbishment to the northern entry which would be primarily constructed of concrete and steel frame with mostly light weight cladding on the northern facade.
