Our 'big plans' are well underway!
In 2014 Shellharbour Workers’ Club launched the Master Plan for the development of the Shellharbour site over the next 20 years. The planning process behind our ‘big plans’ has taken time to formulate but work has now commenced and the builders are on site. With the carpark works now complete, the next 12 months will see more works progress both inside and out.
• An innovative new dining experience is on its way...we're converting the existing, underutilised auditorium into a new and exciting space.
• The Shellharbour Club is undergoing some venue upgrades including a well-deserved facelift for the Sports Bar.
• Plans for the Fitness Centre are close to completion.
• The Childcare Centre design is underway.
Plus, we've submitted a DA for our newest asset, The Imperial at Clifton, which we will be developing into an amazing new venue.
A new Food & Beverage Precinct & Event Space Project will repurpose the existing, underutilised auditorium into a new and exciting space within The Shellharbour Club.
Known as 'Precinct', the new space will offer an alternative dining experience with 4 street style dining options and 3 pop up outlets, a theatre-based food and beverage experience with projections and events and a new children's play area. Precinct will also include opportunities for workshop classes and children's parties. The Event Space will provide a unique space for weddings, special occasions, corporate events and workshops.
The project is currently under construction and is estimated to open in March/April 2017.
Our new carpark is now open. Boasting an additional 200+ car park spaces, manicured landscaping and new lighting, our resurfaced carpark is now available for use.
The Fitness & Cafe Project will see the southern side of The Shellharbour Club reinvented to a fitness centre which will also include a creche and cafe.
The fitness centre will house state-of-the-art training equipment and modern work-out areas providing a new, fresh and inviting space to get fit. The creche will allow parents to use the fitness centre at their leisure while giving the kids somewhere fun to play and amuse themselves. The cafe will be a light and fresh hub and will cater to the health and fitness market providing quick, fresh and healthy 'grab and go' food and beverage options.
The Grove Academy has been selected as the preferred operator for the future Childcare Centre to be located on the south-west corner of the Shellharbour site. The Award Winning Grove Academy provides early childhood services specialising in providing quality care and education for children from birth to five years and is located in four locations within the Sydney and Illawarra regions, including Albion Park.
The proposed Childcare Centre will be designed to be a 120 place childcare centre with state-of-the-art facilities, qualified and caring early childhood educators, nutritious meals prepared by an onsite chef, landscaped outdoor play areas and a focus on parent communication. The Grove Academy specialises in providing a nurturing environment for children with a focus on natural play spaces.
Shellharbour Workers Club Ltd is working closely with The Grove Academy and appointed architects, Welsh and Major, on the design of the proposed centre.
Shellharbour Workers Club Ltd purchased The Imperial at Clifton in March 2015 at public auction. Many people will remember the iconic old pub that traded as the Imperial Hotel from way back in the late 1800s. The Club will develop the Clifton property into a vibrant, unique and multifunctional venue that responds to the needs of the local community and helps to promote the Illawarra area as a tourist destination. The development of the property will aim to optimise its unique location and will acknowledge the past history of the building and the area.
Early stage works commenced in May in preparation for the future building works which will occur once the design works are completed and approved by Wollongong City Council. Welsh and Major Architects have been appointed to work on the project.
