The highly anticipated major makeover to the northern entry of Court Cooleman Court is underway, with the current concrete ramp entry to be replaced by an enclosed, weather-proofed travellator.

The upgrades to Cooleman Court, which has been a mainstay of the Weston Creek community for over 40 years, will deliver a new look to the shopping centre in a private development by owner Mirvac.

The new entryway on Mahony Court will provide a more functional and attractive façade to the main pedestrian and car parking area of Cooleman Court.

The $2.6 million upgrade includes a visual facelift to the centre and the installation of new signage to align with the new fit-outs and contemporary styling that has been undertaken by retailers in the past months.

The improvements, which Mirvac said will “enhance access and exude an elegant ambience on arrival to the centre”, will include the installation of travelators at the entry and a lift.

The entire area will be enclosed in glass with double auto doors alongside a contemporary aesthetic green feature wall. Additional works to improve the appearance and functionality of the centre will include new entrance mats, new automatic doors for the disabled toilets.

Cooleman Court’s centre manager Irini Daglis said there will be no interruption to customer access during the four months of work at the centre and shared her excitement to the facelift at “Coolo”.

“Our goal is to ensure our customers are having the best experience possible when they visit us, which this revitalisation will deliver,” Ms Daglis said.

“We are thrilled to be able to present a centre that will reflect the expectations of our customers who have always made us the heart of their community.”

The centre has also launched a new Community Library Nook located on the top floor, providing a time out area for customers to enjoy. The community library will have a book share system for customers to come and borrow or donate a book.

The Southern carpark has also recently been upgraded to include two main bus stops on Parkinson Street, along with the addition of new on-street parking and upgrades to the existing carpark.

40-year veteran favourite Greengrocer and fresh fruit juice and salad bar Freddy Frapples will be celebrating the makeover by offering customers ongoing specials and promotions. Owner Thanasis Stavrakis described the improvements around the whole centre as fantastic, making “the entire customer experience better”.

How about just fix the chain things on the trolley bays so we don't have to search across half the bloody carpark just to find one where we can get our token back. Won't cost $2.6 million and will be far more useful.

Coollo, where the speed limit in the majority of the parking areas is higher than in the adjoining streets.

Renee Cecelia you won’t be able to lose control of the trolley anymore!

Wait. Didn’t they have a long-awaited, major upgrade to Coleman court a few years ago?

8:46 pm 31 May 19

It’s great you want to make it all look pretty, how about increasing the parking it’s absolutely ridiculous how you have to drive around waiting for a car park.

Travelator ? Really ? Exercise /walk/ health ? It’s a great shopping centre, just take your time waiting for a parking spot - then walk a small distance . Love the privately owned fruit shop and all the other independents

    Marcia Denman travelator will make a huge difference for disabled people people who have huge difficulty walking up that ramp. Having to park in the carpark on the other side of the centre to go to woollies and walk twice as far is not ideal. It is painful and exhausting. If you can walk for your health, then by all means, go for it, but please don't dismiss or shame those of us who can't.

    Lindsay Hayes yes it will also help the elderly as well

7:00 pm 31 May 19

Wish there was better shops...

6:45 pm 31 May 19

Lisa Garner disappointed to see the ramp go. It's like a rite of passage as a weston creek kid to get dragged down it by mums trolley at least once.
