The New Glen will elevate the customer experience to create a boutique destination where food, fashion and people come together.

Construction is underway and the development will be completed in stages to minimise disruption to our customers and our retailers.

Who are the new retailers as part of The New Glen?
Stage 1, our fresh food market hall, will be anchored by a new Aldi, the latest format Woolworths, and a Coles supermarket, and will also feature a wide selection of boutique food retailers.
It’s premature to make any announcements about what brands we will welcome to The New Glen in future stages; however, The New Glen will attract international and Australian brands, signature dining and the best fresh food. We look forward to announcing new retailers as our development progresses.
Will parking be impacted during the development of The Glen?
During construction, we will work hard to minimise impact to our customers. While there will be some disruptions with a select number of our car spaces not available, all of our car parks open will be open as usual for our customers’ convenience.

Customers can keep an eye on our Facebook page and website for regular updates on any changes to our car parks.
