 Wellness duo secured as tenants at south Melbourne shopping centre

A pair of wellness tenants will bring a healthy edge to a popular shopping centre in south Melbourne after agreeing to long-term leases.

In January the new Snap Fitness gym will open its doors in The Links shopping centre in Oakleigh South, whilst the Kaizen Clinics medical centre is already open for business.

The Links is a $90 million retail project headed by developer Pellicano, and the two health and fitness clients will complement the shopping centre’s existing tenant base, which includes Woolworths, Australia Post, Bunnings and Chemist Warehouse.

Pellicano Managing Director Nando Pellicano believes that Oakleigh South has been crying out for more wellness facilities and, with the lifting of Melbourne’s tough restrictions regarding gyms, the timing couldn’t be better.

“Oakleigh South is an area that’s growing and evolving, the population is becoming younger and it’s an increasingly popular locale for first- and second-home buyers, upsizers and younger families – all of whom will benefit from these new occupants at The Links,” he says.

Kaizen Clinics occupies a 245sqm space and has agreed to a 10-year lease while Snap Fitness will take up the 710sqm first floor on a 12-year lease after the Colliers International team of Dan Noonan, Damien Adkins and Tom Rothel negotiated the deals.

“These new openings also bolster the offering of commercial clients at The Links, with a gym and a medical centre on-site appealing to workforces returning to the office in 2021

Both clients are set to capitalise on the high footfall of The Links centre, with this the second Kaizen Clinics centre and will provide wellbeing services including cosmetic procedures and acupuncture.

Kaizen Clinics Director Dr Vishal Sharma says the suburb’s demographic makes it the ideal spot to expand their portfolio, with the group’s other medical centre located in Seville.

“We were drawn to the established local populace, we knew that Oakleigh South was an area with a close-knit community – this made it the perfect location for our second clinic,” he explains.
