The site is owned by a group of Ballarat investors, with Bunnings a tenant in what Mr Troon said had already created between 60 to 70 construction jobs for the city.
This comes as news DTC is stepping up its shopping and foodie experience, one year after a grand opening.
Ballarat’s most popular burger chain Griffin Burger announced last week it was moving into DTC early next year with fit-outs to begin this month.
Ribs and burger store Food Ruckers is tipped to open its doors in the precinct before Christmas.
Mr Troon has also confirmed a national gym brand is signed up to get active in DTC next year.
DTC is the city’s biggest retail development since Central Square. Its flagship tenants are Woolworths, Kmart and Showbiz Cinemas.
The area surrounding DTC and Bunnings is expected to house as many as 12,000 residents by 2030 – many likely to be in need of the do-it-yourself mecca.
