It’s a mark of truly belonging somewhere, when you come to know your local barista, bartender and butcher by name. And the first acquaintance you should make is Charles.

That’s Charles Street, WEST’s vibrant high street precinct and social hub; the meeting place of connection and convenience, and your gateway to local shopping, dining and community services. And all just a short walk from home!

“We’re really excited about this next phase in WEST’s award-winning journey. Charles Street will be a fantastic meeting place for our residents, surrounding community and visitors to WEST and we think a great addition to the unique West Lakes feel that so many people love”, says Commercial & General Executive Director of Communities, Chris Menz.

With more than $120m of development now confirmed, one of the cornerstones of Charles Street will be the new City of Charles Sturt Library and Community space. Featuring the library, community space, community kitchen and Council facilities set amongst a landscaped plaza and cafe connecting to the Football Park oval.

We are also very excited to welcome German supermarket, Kaufland to Charles Street, delivering a comprehensive grocery offering to the WEST community.

Kaufland is one of Europe’s biggest brands with a strong focus on fresh produce and prides itself on being a one-stop destination, with a huge range of choice, value and quality.

“The new Kaufland development will generate more than 170 jobs during construction and 100 ongoing local jobs once it opens. We think that’s really positive news for the area, and with a strong focus on fresh produce and increased opportunities for local business and suppliers, Kaufland will be an exciting addition to the community as they further their investment in South Australia”, says Chris

Adding further vibrancy to Charles Street is a range of allied health services, food offerings, retail shops, plaza, landscaped open spaces and of course the UnitingSA aged care facility already under construction in Charles Street.

We encourage you to pop into our Sales Centre to learn about all the exciting things happening at WEST. Open 7 days, 11am-4pm, 103 West Lakes Boulevard.
