Lakeside Joondalup Shopping City


The significant expansion of the prominent Lakeside Joondalup Shopping City created an additional 29,000m2 of retail and office floor space. On completion of the staged works, the centre’s gross lettable area rose to over 70,000m2.

Lakeside Joondalup shopping city is the major shopping centre and retail show piece of the City of Joondalup and integral part of the central business district

BCA Consultants was engaged to provide the electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, vertical transportation, lighting design, fire safety engineering and fire services for the development.

The expansion included a new major Sisters IGA supermarket, a Big W discount department store, 100 specialty stores, and 2-storey offices, as well as 2,000 additional car parking spaces in a new 4-level carpark.
