Stockland Glendale
Stockland Glendale is a major shopping centre located in Glendale, a suburb of the City of Lake Macquarie, New South Wales, Australia. It is located on Lake Road, Glendale, on a 19.6- hectare (48.4- acre) parcel of land, and primarily serves the Lake Macquarie region to the southwest of Newcastle.

History and development
Stockland released a concept plan for the Glendale Super Centre in 1994. It was being developed as a US-style power centre consisting of category killer traders, where tenants traded in an open-air environment and there was no internal malls. The tenants listed in the proposal included Target, Woolworths, Franklins Big Fresh, Homeart, World 4 Kids and Best & Less, and room had been provided for about 50 specialty stores, including free-standing fast food outlets. The centre was valued at A$55.5 million on completion in March 1996. In December 2005, Stockland completed an 8,749 square metres (94,173 sq ft) expansion to the centre, adding a Kmart and 19 specialty stores. Annual turnover at the centre for 2007 was A$261.2 million, with a book value of $220 million.

Transport
The centre is directly serviced by Newcastle Buses and Ferries bus routes 226, 334, 339 and 363. The latter three of these routes also link the centre to Cardiff railway station about four kilometres away. Sugar Valley Bus Services and Toronto Bus Services also travel to Glendale Shopping Centre.

Facilities
The centre is also home to the Hunter Sports Centre, which consists of an athletics track and indoor sports centre. It was built in 1998 at a cost of A$8.4 million, much of which was funded by the City of Lake Macquarie and the Government of New South Wales, and opened in February 1999 with a view to the upcoming 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, 140 kilometres (87 mi) away. Previously there were plans for a new indoor basketball stadium to be constructed at the centre for the primary use of the Hunter Pirates NBL franchise. These plans have since been shelved since that teams' relocation to Singapore.
