I spoke to someone a few weeks ago who works for the Scentre Group, they claimed that Stage 2 of the TTP expansion should be starting this calander year.

Apparently Stage 1 has been an even bigger success than they anticipated so they want to strike while the iron is hot.

Good.

Visiting TTP is like stepping back into the 90s.

Likely to involve repainting more walls and hopefully bridging the gap between this and Tea Tree Plus!

I went there just after Xmas to watch a movie. I had never been there before.
I was really impressed with the new area. Bustling with people well past ten at places that served alcohol and most other eateries full too. I wish they would do this for West Lakes in the next expansion.

Except in the 90s you could get a cup of hot donuts from Donut King :wink: for about $2ish

I also asked them whether Stage 2 included connecting TT+ to TTP and they indicated that it did, so hopefully exciting times are ahead for TT Plaza.

Radio Rentals at Tea Tree Plus just closed recently.
Could this mean the fate of Tea Tree Plus is just around the corner?

That could possibly be true.

I know that's what happened with Buongiorno, they were told that they had two options they either committed to moving to the new precinct or had to close up.

I think they're beginning to move businesses on in readiness for the upgrade. I imagine it will eventually happen to Savers as well, no way will Westfield want them having a store that's connected to TTP.

In my own theory, Savers could move to a genuine new commercial building on the site of the Valley View Holden dealership.

Radio Rentals are downsizing a heap of their stores into 'Hi Tech Hubs'. The Radio Rentals at Hollywood Plaza recently closed, and a smaller, 'Hi Tech Hub' opened at Parabanks in it's place (somewhat going full circle as Radio Rentals were in Parabanks until the mid 90's in the space the post office now has). I think similar happened down at Noarlunga. It could be part of this downsizing rather than any announcement for the redevelopment that saw the Radio Rentals close.

Interestingly though Elizabeth both has both a hi-tech hub in Elizabeth City Centre and a full store on Elizabeth Way.

Originally back in the 1990s, Radio Rentals Hi Tech Hubs were three superstores; Tea Tree Plus, Prospect (Main North Rd) and Melrose Park (South Rd).
The Melrose Park building is now a place of worship while the Prospect building is still trading as usual.
