Lascorp gained approval in late 2012 for the development of a 3,800 square metre supermarket, together with approx. 15 specialty shops, a medical centre and Pad Site.

Proposed Lucas Town Centre, VIC

5 Coltman Plaza, Lucas (Alfredton), Victoria

This Site has now been sold to Woolworths Ltd, who is undertaking the development of the supermarket and the shops on their own behalf.

The balance of the land is proposed to be developed as a Town Centre including a Fast Food pad site, specialty shops and a future larger scale retail building, which is likely to be occupied as either a second supermarket or DDS in approx. 3-5 year’s time.

The initial part of the project being the development of the supermarket and shopping centre has commenced on site and is anticipated to be completed late August 2013.

The Town Centre stage is subject to gaining the necessary pre-commitments, however the remaining specialty shops and the Fast Food pad site’s development is likely to commence later in 2013.

Lucas is a major growth centre, approx. 7km west of Ballarat and approx. 125km west of the Melbourne CBD. The area is surrounded by a number of new residential estates which are currently being developed, generating substantial population growth.
