New Bunnings type for Sydney’s north

by | Feb 25, 2021

An enormous new Bunnings store planned for Sydney’s northern suburbs, is set to be the first in NSW to span three storeys.

The proposed multi-level Bunnings Warehouse, at the corner of Warringah Road and Allambie Road in Frenchs Forest, had been granted approval and the hardware giant is now reviewing the conditions, Bunnings Regional Operations Manager Alan Harvey said recently.

“Spanning over 20,000 square metres Bunnings Frenchs Forest will be the first store in NSW to have three levels of retail, with on-site parking for almost 400 cars,” Mr Harvey said in a recent report.

“While it is too early to confirm an opening date, we look forward to providing a wide range of home and lifestyle products to the Frenchs Forest community,” he said.

The new store expected to create more than 130 team member jobs, with the construction cost estimated to be about $48 million.

The planned store is almost as big as the massive new $55 million Midland Warehouse in Perth’s northeast that opened in December, according to the report. It is the biggest in Western Australia spanning more than 21,000 square metres, with more than double the amount of carparking as the old Midland Bunnings at about 480 bays.
