Warners Bay Village welcomes Lucky’s new look


Warners Bay Village has added the final touches to its long-awaited facelift. 

The community shopping hub that boasts 22 essential stores has completed upgrades to its amenities corridor, including male, female toilets, disabled toilet and the parents room.

Set a block away from Lake Macquarie’s edge, the quaint retail complex has also welcomed a fresh colour pallet on its exterior.

Dubbed ‘Float Away’ the building’s exterior has been decorated with a mural by Newcastle artist Jordan Lucky.

The graffiti-ridden brick wall of the building’s west-side now donns a large-scale mural featuring local flora and fauna set beneath a bright Lake Macquarie sunset.

A black cockatoo hovering above a moored boat, overlooked by a pelican that is surrounded by vibrant proteas and birds of paradise all feature in the art installation.

According to centre management the piece is said to represent the harmonious relationship between the lakeside town, its wildlife, and the lake itself.

“We had a vision of capturing the beating heart of Warners Bay and creating something that the community would not only be proud of but also resonate with, said Warners Bay Village manager Lisa Mourga.

“This has been proven via the hundreds upon hundreds of positive comments received, along with the mural reaching art trail social media groups Australia wide. 

“We’re proud to present the local community with a world-class artwork right at their doorstep.”

The John Street mural, together with the new amenities, a new look pedestrian car park ramp and mall seating rest areas ‘has delivered on a community ethos that locals can be proud of’ shopping centre owners ISPT say.

“We wanted to represent the beauty of the area but also capture the local way of life,” Ms Mourga said.

“Our hope is that the community enjoys this piece for many years to come. 

“We encourage locals and visitors alike to head to Warners Bay Village to see the amazing works of Jordan Lucky.”

ISPT’s $19.3 billion portfolio invests in and develops commercial, retail, logistics, warehousing and residential property in Australia.
