Woolworths Nelson Bay

Port Stephens, NSW

The Nelson Bay Woolworths project provides a full service supermarket within the CBD of Nelson Bay. This new building replaced a smaller supermarket on the site with a new 3,400 sqm Woolworths, specialty shop and carparking for 184 cars. The site is a major gateway into Nelson Bay, and the Stockton and Donald Street corner marks the start of the main shopping precinct. The double height glazed store
entry was designed as a symmetrical feature element to highlight the importance of the corner. Carparking is provided in a basement accessed off Donald Street, which keeps the overall profile of the development low, to minimise the impact on surrounding residential buildings. The street facades have been designed with a variety of materials and finishes to reflect the breakup of a traditional street. A
large glazed entry void brings light from the street down into the basement, and also provides travellator access for customers up into the store.
