Sunshine Plaza Re-Development Official Opening
I officiated at the Sunshine Plaza $440m redevelopment opening this morning in Maroochydore.
It has come a long way since “The Sands” I remember from the mid 70’s!
I shared the stage and ribbon cutting with students from Maroochydore State School, who no doubt represent the future Plaza customers and retailers.
I ensured each student received a cutting from the ribbon to remember the occasion.
A big crowd was in attendance to reward the investment of General Property Trust, Australian Prime Property Fund and Lend Lease and all the business owners who have invested and created thousands of jobs.
Most young people and students get their first job at the Plaza.
I was delighted to see so many Board members and senior managers of the owners in attendance, reinforcing the status of our region and its economic growth and prosperity.
Jessica Gomes and Jett Kenny ushered in the new David Jones where locals lined up patiently to inspect the new offering.
Well done Mike and team from Centre Management along with all who contributed to the fantastic construction and fit out.
