Construction of Amart Furniture Wagga almost complete

Construction of a major retail space next to The Mill is nearly complete after months of work.

For the best part of six months, Lanskey Constructions has been overseeing the development of the long-vacant Edward Street block, across the road from Bolton Park, into a new Amart Furniture store.

Project manager Peter Kannangara said the construction project was on schedule for completion by the end of the month with fit-out works due to commence soon thereafter.

“Lanskey Constructions, where possible, have utilised the services of local sub-contractors to carry out the work, thus keeping the work in the local community,” Mr Kannangara said.

It comes as developers of the neighbouring Mill development prepare to build a 156-room, six-storey hotel next door.

The size and scale of both commercial developments, in addition to others across the city, were seen as a sign of confidence in the Wagga market.
