Not only the largest shopping centre in the southern hemisphere, Chadstone – The Fashion Capital enjoys status as one of the world’s leading integrated lifestyle destinations, with more than 24 million visitors a year.

NDY has established a long-term partnership with Vicinity in the ongoing development and operation of Chadstone.

Sustainable Long-Term Masterplan

Development of a long-term services infrastructure masterplan, with a vision to cater for the significant mixed use growth strategy that the Chadstone precinct plans to offer, including reflection on previous development choices, to set a strategy which adopts sustainable development aspirations including reduction of fossil fuel use, and net zero carbon.

Development Evolution

Concept design, and development application documentation of the next evolution of major development including approximately 20,000 sq m retail redevelopment/expansion, 20,000 m² commercial office tower, entertainment expansion, and significant customer parking expansion.

Chadstone Tower One

Australian property leader, Vicinity Centres, has a new state-of-the-art national office, integrated within the 16,000 sq m office development. NDY also designed Vicinity’s new 7,000 m² corporate workplace, designed to encourage staff collaboration and occupant wellbeing, and delivered as an integrated project.

As sustainability consultants, NDY lead the development of sustainable design to achieve a 5 Star Green Star Interiors rating.

An open central stair is provided across Vicinity’s four floors, which required fire engineering solutions that support the design aesthetic and safety objectives.
