Sutherland Shire Mayor has congratulated the Westfield Group for its significant investment in the Shire economy following the announcement of a $435 million redevelopment of Westfield Miranda.

“Westfield Miranda is a very popular retail hub in the Sutherland Shire and southern Sydney so this expansion and redevelopment will serve to cement that status,” said the Mayor.

“The positive impact that this project will have will be felt across the Shire, from the extra local jobs that are generated, to the improved retail and entertainment options available for Shire residents and visitors,” he said.

“This is going to be a great boost for the local construction industry and the retail sector for both full time and part time workers.

“I congratulate the Westfield Group for the vision they have shown in undertaking what I expect will be a first-class retail and entertainment precinct,” Mayor Johns said.
