Pimpama City Centre
Members of the CDM Smith Economics Team have been providing ongoing advice to the developers of Pimpama City Centre, a sub-regional shopping centre. Pimpama is one of Australia’s fastest growing regions with annual dwelling approvals exceeding 1,000 dwellings for the last four years.
CDM Smith team members have worked on the project since its inception, assisting the developer with obtaining an amendment to the planning scheme for the subject site to be designated as a District Centre as part of the Gold Coast City Council planning scheme review. CDM Smith team members have provided ongoing advice in the form of population, housing and expenditure updates to retail needs advice as well as assisting prospective major tenants, such as Aldi to develop their business case for locating at the centre.
Our team members have provided advice on leasing mix and implications for leasing resulting from a changing retail environment.
