Stage 6 Development

Development Update 3 April 2020

The unprecedented and rapidly escalating social and economic impact of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) will result in a delay of the Stage Six expansion of Burnside Village until there’s greater clarity within the economic environment.

The Cohen Group is still working on plans for the project with key stakeholders but the Coronavirus is having an impact on these plans and it is uncertain how it will affect the project timing.

We appreciate the support received from the community, project partners, tenants, Council and Government for the expansion and look forward to proceeding with development in a stronger economic environment.

The Cohen Group also wishes you and your families well as you tackle the challenges of COVID-19, and give you our assurance that we remain committed to serving our customers, tenants and the local community during this time.


Development Update 18 February 2020

On , Tuesday 18 February 2020 we will be commencing demolition of the existing buildings within the fenced off development site. This is located on the northern boundary of the existing Centre along Greenhill Road and between Sydney Street and Portrush Road.

The demolition works will take approximately 7 weeks to complete and they will be carried out by professional contractors between 7am and 5pm from Monday to Saturday.

All works will be undertaken to minimise any disruption to local residents, road users or visitors to Burnside Village.

During demolition, we will be working on the construction program and will provide you with a further update when this has been finalised.

The Stage Six expansion will create an exciting alfresco dining precinct, cinema, around 90 new specialty stores set over two levels and approximately 600 new undercover car parks to enhance South Australia’s premier fashion, food, entertainment and dining destination.

We appreciate though that the expansion is made possible with the support of our neighbouring residents, customers, retailers, the City of Burnside and the wider community, and are grateful for the contributions made by all these stakeholders.

Please note that Burnside Village will continue trading as normal throughout the demolition works.

We remain committed to working to minimising any interruptions associated with site works and will continue to keep you informed of our activity in the months ahead.

If you have any questions relating to the demolition works, please contact our concierge desk at the centre or via email concierge@cohengroup.com.au.
