Plans for a Zuccoli shopping centre by Christmas

Residents of Zuccoli are in for a treat this year with plans for an official opening of a new community shopping village in time for Christmas.

Rod Morris, Managing Director of the owner-­‐developers The RR Morriss Group, said he was pleased to announce that construction had commenced on Zuccoli Plaza, which will provide a local commercial centre for people living in Zuccoli.

“The shopping centre will incorporate 14 shops including a supermarket, gym, medical centre, chemist and coffee shop. IGA have already signed with us to provide the supermarket and I am looking forward to announcing the other tenants in the coming weeks,”

Mr Morris said. Zuccoli Plaza is located on the corner of Zuccoli Parade and Crosby Street and connects to The William Kirkby-­‐Jones AM Memorial Park. The Park was officially opened by the Chief Minister, The Hon. Adam Giles MLA, in August 2015. The Park was named after Mr Kirkby-­‐Jones, who was recognised as one of the great leaders of the housing industry, not only here in the Northern Territory, but also right across the country.

“Cyclists will be able to go for a ride through the park and onto the centre, where we will provide bike racks and a plaza in which to enjoy a morning coffee,” Mr Morris added. “We are keen to create a true community vibe and have plans to incorporate a feature mural into the centre’s design by a local Territory artist,” he said.

Zuccoli Plaza is being constructed by Hutchinson Builders, who are also currently working on the Gateway Shopping Centre in Palmerston, the Woolworths Bakewell Shopping Centre and the Jape Homemaker Village in Millner.

Urbex General Manager Wayne Rex welcomed the news that construction had commenced.

“Zuccoli Plaza is an integral asset to the Zuccoli village,” he said.

“As a master-­‐planned community, a major focus of the development is to create a local village feel while delivering amenity and affordability to residents.”

Zuccoli Stage 1 has been developed by Urbex in partnership with the Northern Territory Government’s Land Development Corporation and offers a variety of house and land options catering to all lifestyles and budgets. Upon completion, Zuccoli Stage 1 will contain over 900 homes for more than 2,700 Territorians.

Minister Assisting the Treasurer Nathan Barrett MLA said that the development of the new shopping village at Zuccoli is wonderful news for the local community and a definite, positive sign of the real growth in the area.

“As the Northern Territory Government Minister Assisting the Treasurer, I am delighted to see the continued growth in this area. New shopping centres are always a true indication of prosperity and this development reinforces the Giles Government’s Buy Local Campaign.

“The Giles Government has a plan that secures the future of the Northern Territory. We’re delivering jobs, better services, lower crime rates and a great lifestyle and developments such as these go to that heart of our commitment to all Territorians,” Minister Nathan Barrett said.

New Basketball Court a blessing for the College and Community.

Students at MacKillop Catholic College in Palmerston will start the school year with a new basketball court thanks to the Catholic Church of the Diocese of Darwin, the Australian Government and the joint partnership of the Land Development Corporation and Urbex.

The basketball court, which was completed over the school holidays, will be ready for use and launched tomorrow by the Bishop of Darwin Eugene Hurley, Deputy Director of School Services, Catholic Education Greg O’Mullane, Federal Member for Solomon Natasha Griggs MP and Zuccoli Independent Chairman Michael Corcoran.

Completed by JMac Constructions, the basketball court is valued at $300,000 and funded by the Federal Government, the Catholic Diocese and Urbex, local developers of stage one of Zuccoli, in partnership with the Land Development Corporation.

Bishop Hurley said that the new facility would add to the foundation of the community.

“The vision for the MacKillop Catholic College community involves a strong community participation in vibrant, caring and compassionate activities.

“As a new school located in a new and growing suburb we have limited facilities for students and families. This basketball court provides a much-needed resource for students during the school day and a place for families, clubs and young people to play after school hours.

“MacKillop Catholic College was built at the beginning of 2012 and from that point in time has had as its focus to be a school for the community. Its strong sense of welcome and inclusiveness is overwhelming to all who come to this place,” he said.

Natasha Griggs MP, Federal Member for Solomon, added how heart warming it is to see the local community flourish and the students of MacKillop College excel in their new surroundings and facilities.

“Helping provide a facility such as this is at the heart of what we do, the joint funding aims to provide better facilities for those that live in the suburb and study at the school” Mrs Griggs said.

Zuccoli Independent Chairman Michael Corcoran said it was exciting to see the area develop and the community grow.

“It has been a pleasure working with the school to develop the basketball court. This project presented an opportunity to not only build on the facilities of the school but also for the residents of Zuccoli and the local community. We look forward to working on future projects together,” Mr Corcoran said.

The new basketball court will be launched on Friday 12 February, at the MacKillop Catholic College at 9.30am, and will include a basketball demonstration by young talent from the College.
