DEVELOPERS behind the Harvey Norman site have remained tight-lipped about which tenants might accompany the furniture and electrical giant at the Pilot Farm Rd centre, but one teaser was given.
"A large national tenant," Emerald Real Estate principal Jason Campbell said.
"Three potential local tenants are considering moving out there, but none of them are confirmed."
Mr Campbell said there were four available tenancies of 425sq m, and construction remained on track for an end of March opening.
"Harvey Norman won't be here for Christmas," he said.
"But it's all looking quite good and is running on schedule.
"There has been a lot more interest in the place since building has begun."
Mr Campbell said while Harvey Norman was building the site and fitting it out in accordance with national floorplans, the four other spaces available were being designed for the "bulky goods retail sector".
"There's a large national tenant wanting a little over 700sq m, but that's negotiations," he said.
He remained confident that despite a few setbacks since the retail giant announced its intention to enter the Emerald market, the store would open on time.
The building site was the scene of a break and enter just over a week ago, during which a quantity of power hand tools was stolen, Emerald police said.
