Returning to our focus on CHADSTONE, the first of many enlargements was done between 1985 and 1986. The original mall was enclosed, with a new supermarket and 2-level Northeast Wing built. Moreover, the north end food store was replaced by a vertically-stacked Target discount emporium and 8-screen cinema.

With all of the reconstruction, there was now little -if any- of the original 1960 mall remaining. Note: after some political rezoning in 1994, the mall was now situated in the newly-created City of Stonnington local government area (but still considered to be within its Malvern East suburb).
