Burnside Village Future Development Plans Approved
We’re pleased to have received development consent from the State Commission Assessment Panel for our Masterplan to deliver a new era in retail and enhance Burnside Village as South Australia’s premier retail and lifestyle destination.
The proposed development will deliver our long-term vision to enhance the Centre by adding more fashion, homewares, entertainment and dining options.
It includes world-class retail design, creating opportunities to expand our renowned boutique retail offer in the distinctive Burnside Village atmosphere. The development would take place in two or more stages over the next 10 years.
Development consent has been made possible with input from the South Australian planning and traffic authorities, the City of Burnside, our customers, retailers and neighbouring residents.
We sincerely thank all of these groups for their support and will continue working with them to deliver our vision for Burnside Village.
About the Masterplan
Our vision marks the sixth and seventh evolution of Burnside Village and will further enhance the Centre’s reputation as a premium retail and lifestyle destination.
The Masterplan would be delivered in two or more stages, known as Stage Six and Stage Seven, over the next 10 years.
The Proposed Stage Six

- Additional 600 free undercover parking spaces
- Office accommodation / commercial space for personal and wellness services at the corner of Greenhill Road and Portrush Road

Some years later, we would look to improve the street frontages at the southern end of the site and add:
- A new mall entry at Portrush Road
- New fresh food precinct, including a second supermarket
- 50 new specialty stores
- 350 new parking spaces
- Additional commercial space at the Portrush Road / Greenhill Road corner.
