Coles Myer Property Developments Ltd purchased and developed the site.

In 2003, Architects, Gerard Thomas and Associates, submitted a development application to Whoolhara Council.

Australia's second largest grocery chain Coles was to be the anchor tenant in the retail part of the development. 2 Commercial offices were incorporated into the development. The upper levels of the development included 9 residential units.

As part of the Development Application, Graham Brooks and Associates, Architects and Heritage Consultants, were commissioned to draft a Heritage Impact Assessment, which they presented to Council in January 2002.

In March 2006, the development was completed, and Coles supermarket opened for business.

The Developer and the Heritage Architects have done extraordinarily well in maintaining the unique external appearance of the original Kings Theatre.
