Great renovations - but the car guards are aggressive and unprofessional.
Jun 2019
I have been to the newly renovated centre on three occasions. Regrettable, I have been subjected to foreign car guards that are aggressive, and on the last occasion verbally abusive. I certainly do not need the aggravation, and do not see why I should be harassed if I elect not to make use of a car guards services. I reported the matter to the security officer, and am yet to be contacted back by the centre management.

Another Re-vamp!
Jan 2019
Brightwater commons is now called Ferndale on Republic. It is going for a much trendier look and should be fine when completely finished. It still has some of the old favourites but has lost it's market type feel. After numerous re-vamps let's hope this one sticks!

Renovations in progress
Nov 2018 • Family
Renovations are in progress - should be done by late 2019. Some anchor tenants are still operating and it promises to be a superb venue for retail and other.

new look centre with fresh new name; FERNDALE ON REPUBLIC
Aug 2018 • Business
this traditional centre has been through a proper metamorphosis and is presently looking sparkling and new. work is still in progress to add a full suite of national anchor tenants but the construction work is well concealed behind cleverly placed and pleasant looking hoardings.

for the sections that have been completed the access is easy and the old favourite eating establishments like Scrooge Diner and the wonderful fish restaurant Ocean Basket are still in full swing.

soon the Gym with be lit up with the new Ignite Gym and Urban Brew Studios are now well and truly established here in their new home.

Messy building site
Jul 2018 • Business
The stores open still are doing a good job. The construction ongoing is messy and feels unsafe to walk past. The end product will likely be very nice but in the meantime....

Permanently Closed
Dec 2017
Nothing to see here, renovations have been ongoing for almost forever. Almost all shops are closed. If you go here, you will be sorely disappointed by the waste of a day.

Major Renovations
May 2018 • Solo
Gone! Everything in the way of garden and water that was once the Brightwater Commons has been demolished and replaced with a large parking area. 80% of the property is now for a TV Studio. Nothing touristy there!

A Metamorphosis of Sorts
Nov 2017 • Couples
If you are coming to BWC for a meal or for the day out, you will be sadly disappointed.
As has already been reviewed by other, there are few shops open on the eastern side, just renovations for the new major tenant - A TV Production House (Urban Brew). Gone are numerous restaurants, flea market and even the Spur has shut up shop -
a sew eateries do still exist, but the selection is dwindling. Virgin Active Gym seems to be the main crowd puller and together with PnP and Mr Price, there is still some activity. Whether the new tenant moving in will attract new restaurants and shops remains to be seen.
