Double Bay Shopping Centre needed easier, quieter freight access
Kiaora Lands Shopping Centre in Double Bay is one of the area's most prestigious retail locations, but their loading dock was letting down that image.
The door to the loading dock was poorly engineered and unreliable, Woollahra Council told us. The door often jammed, and when it did work, it was very slow. Trucks would often be causing congestion in the busy street, waiting for the door to open. That made noise - a problem for the residents in the upscale apartments directly above the shopping centre.
