Market City Shopping Centre, Sydney

Project Size
$2 million

The Project

Market City Shopping Centre is located in the Sydney CBD, surrounded by Chinatown and Darling Harbour. It’s best known for Paddy’s Markets, a major tourist attraction located on the ground floor. In recent months, there has been a dramatic increase in pedestrian activity in the area, thanks to the $1.5 billion development of ICC Sydney and broader $3.4 billion revitalisation of Darling Harbour. As a result, Jen Retail Properties is implementing a series of upgrades to its Market City Shopping Centre.

The Solutions

Phase one of the development involved relocating the existing food court to make way for a new restaurant precinct, expanding the IGA supermarket, reconfiguring existing retail tenancies and upgrading entry points to the mall. MBC Group worked closely with Jen Retail Properties to provide consulting services and ensure each element of the upgrade achieved a compliant outcome. Deemed-to-satisfy provisions and performance-based solutions were provided, including the involvement of a fire safety engineer.

The Outcome

MBC Group provided certification services for the reconfigured base building and concurrent fitouts according to the leasing agreements of individual tenants. Our Accredited Building Certifiers also facilitated communication between consultants for the property owner and individual tenants, to ensure everyone was working towards the same goal. As a result, MBC Group was able to achieve a compliant outcome that realised the vision of the client and enabled all tenants to be open for business on grand opening day.
