The project plans include refurbishments to improve the overall presentation, ease of maintenance, and rebranding to better assist visitors. 

A substantial part of the budget will go towards necessary but unseen fixes like roof replacement, asbestos removal, and mechanical updates required for the 60-year-old building.

The Mall will remain open during the ‘refresh’ to minimise downtime for retailers, including the anchor tenant IGA supermarket. However, some short-term closures of individual stores will be necessary over the course of the makeover.

“Where possible, we will try to ensure that as few stores at a time are impacted, to ensure our community can continue to shop as normal in the village. Exact timings will be communicated closer to the time of any impacts,” Manly Harbour Village announced in its website.

The renovations will modernise the ageing complex originally built in the 1960s and revamp it as “The Mall” – a nod to its original name, The Manly Mall. The original mall housed staple shops like a butcher, produce market, newsstand, general store, and barbershop when it first opened in the 1960s.

The new Mall aims to recapture the original marketplace vibe. The fresh, modern interiors and branding are designed to enhance the shopping experience and highlight traders within the centre.
