SEVEN years’ work will come to fruition next month when the completed Co-Store complex opens its doors to the public.

The $33 million development, which includes Wangaratta’s new Target store and a three level car park, has been on the cards since mid-2007.

Much work went into developing the project, with plans finally announced in 2012, and construction getting under way in April last year.

And for James Scremin, director of Prudential Commercial Investments Pty Ltd which owns the Co-Store, yesterday’s handover of the completed building works from Joss Construction was a satisfying milestone.

“But to me, the job’s not finished until the centre is fully open and vibrant,” Mr Scremin said.

The new section of the Co-Store, developed over 15 months by 525 construction workers, features seven other shop spaces leading to the Target store.
