Cat and Fiddle Arcade

Collins, Murray & Elizabeth Streets, Hobart  The Cat & Fiddle arcade in Hobart’s city centre is getting a $12M refurbishment, which its new owners say will transform it into a shoppers’ paradise. Silverleaf Investments plan to revamp the 50-year-old arcade which will be completed over six stages.  Macquarie Builders were responsible for completing stage 2 base building works to Tenancy 6. Other stages will include a new roof, including skylights allowing for more natural light, new facades and awnings on all entrances, the demolishing and rebuilding of the upper level and new lifts and escalators from the mall. Quality finishes and finishes are specified throughout the proposed works.  The new upper level will become a new fashion mall, with some national mainland brands not yet available in Hobart. The full refurbishment is expected to be completed about 12 months before the Myer stage one development is finished for Christmas 2013
