Centre History

MarketPlace Leichhardt is an established sub-regional shopping centre boasting 40 years of trade. Since opening, MarketPlace Leichhardt has evolved greatly with refurbishments, GLA expansions, rebranding, repositioning and sustainable upgrades and retrofitting. 

In 1975 The McNamara Group originally developed the Centre as Leichhardt Market Town.

Local Government Super purchased the Centre in the early 1990s and rebranded it Leichhardt Market Place.  

The Centre underwent a $2.5 million refurbishment in 2002 and was re-branded MarketPlace Leichhardt, as the Centre is known today. The refurbishment incorporated a new logo, new signage, new Centre graphics, new seating for the food court and a new ramp surface for the rooftop car park ramp.

The Centre has continued to evolve through a series of staged refurbishments and upgrades throughtout the last decade including a new Food Court, new pedestrian entrance from Flood Street and introduction of Aldi and Trim's Fresh Fruit & Veg.
