Regent Arcade Blood Donor Centre occupies the first floor area at the Grenfell Street entrance of Regent Arcade. Previously tenanted by sports stores, the redevelopment of the space commenced in 2011 in partnership with the Australia Red Cross Blood Service with the aim of creating a new Blood Donor Centre in a central, city location.
From an empty shell, the space was redeveloped into a modern amenity which also saw part of the Grenfell Street entrance of Regent Arcade transformed from the previously used store entrance into an inviting foyer area with glass frontage to provide natural light as well as lift and stair access to the first floor.
“From a blank canvas, we were able to create a state-of-the-art blood donor centre where generous Australians are saving thousands of lives every day by rolling up their sleeves.
Regent Arcade Blood Donor Centre is Australia’s largest and its warm, innovative design has won it a gold accolade from the Design Institute of Australia. In the heart of the city and with great access to public transport, this is a prime location for office workers and shoppers to do something special with their day.”
