Within the aforementioned development will be a brand new David Jones store that will span two levels and cover 14,500 sq. m. In total an extra 42,700 sq. m. It will be located where the existing Target and Toys'R'Us are located and span further west into the development. Target and Toys'R'Us will relocate elsewhere within the centre. This store will compete with the existing Robina Town Centre store located nearby that was recently redeveloped. Development will surround the new store with restaurants to its north and fashion to its south, parking to its west and the existing centre to its east.
The expansion will include an outdoor leisure and entertainment precinct and increase the number of speciality stores to 400. Work is expected to commence in 2013 and to be complete by 2016.
This shopping centre was featured on the third season of The Mole. The assignment in that show involved contestants Pete Moore and Bob Young having to find two treasures in the shopping centre, and the other contestants were required to tail them without being caught.
