Through our strategy to create market leading destinations, we strive to ensure that our centres reflect the wants and needs of their local communities and incorporate social integration considerations into the design, construction, leasing and operation of our centres.
Vicinity’s leasing strategy is focused on moving our tenant mix to higher demand categories that reflect changing consumer preferences. As a result, offerings at our centres are enhanced with greater café and dining options, cinemas and entertainment, and indoor and outdoor events to create a social experience that caters to our local communities. Our diversified tenant mix also supports consumers’ health and wellbeing through the provision of services such as gyms, medical centres, physiotherapists, insurance companies/offices and various community service providers.
We also focus on offering enjoyable experiences for families to make visiting our centres hassle-free through the inclusion of parents’ rooms, many with baby changing and private feeding facilities, as well as children’s play areas and seasonal programs for school children.
Accessibility and inclusion is a priority across our portfolio, with many of our centres including disabled parking and amenities (such as Changing Places High Care facilities and high tables in food courts for wheelchair access), and wheelchairs for use within the centre.
