Northwest Shopping Centre set to be the new community hub of Westgate

NorthWest Shopping Centre opens its doors to the public on Thursday 1 October. New Zealand’s latest shopping centre is the equivalent of four rugby fields in size and forms the heart of the new Westgate Town Centre, part of Auckland’s Northwest Transformation; the largest transformation project in the country.

NorthWest Shopping Centre owners and developers DNZ Property Fund describes the centre as ‘a community hub’, a place for shoppers and families to visit for the very latest retail experience.

The $155 million shopping centre described as the ‘next generation’ of shopping centres in design and retail offering, will have almost 100 retail stores including anchor tenants Farmers and Countdown, with iconic Kiwi and Australian brands, Glassons, Barkers, Max, Hannahs and an extensive jewellery offering. It also boasts the latest design food court making the best use of natural light and reflecting the west’s natural surroundings.

“The shopping centre has a contemporary design reflecting what the west has to offer, with wall and floor tiles depicting black washed up sand and a concrete rendered wall and natural timbers on the centres’ ceiling,” Centre Manager Jennifer Andrews says.

“To cater to mothers and caregivers we’ve designed two parents rooms that are colourful and playful, equipped with everything needed for young babies, toddlers and their carers,” she says.

“The NorthWest Shopping Centre development has been 18 months in the making with construction on schedule and we’re excited to be opening the doors soon on what will be New Zealand’s newest contemporary shopping centre,” Jennifer Andrews says.

Farmers opens its flagship store at NorthWest Shopping Centre featuring a new line of luxury brands and products for the first time in the region, including an interactive toys section.

The store will offer customers a contemporary and fashionable shopping experience including five new luxury beauty brands, an extensive fragrance and cosmetics offering, a huge home and living department spanning the entire top floor, and a much more extensive furniture offering featuring the latest design trends.

The new store’s beauty department will see an enhanced brand offering, including new counters for Bobby Brown, Estée Lauder, Clinique, Shiseido and Clarins to complement a revamped offering from existing Farmers beauty staples Revlon and Elizabeth Arden.

Children will be treated to a featured LEGO concept area with TVs, special lighting, character graphics and interactive models. The colourful, bright fixtures and fun design are sure to entice kids and keep them busy while the rest of the family shop.

“Farmers is really looking forward to the opening of the NorthWest Shopping Centre with our new store the largest within the shopping centre at over 8,000 square metres and spanning two levels,” Rod McDermott, Farmers Trading Company Limited Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer says.

“The new Farmers store is entirely dedicated to an extensive range of product and brands showcasing the very latest contemporary products including a brand new, never seen before sleep solution concept offer,” Mr McDermott says.

The NorthWest Shopping Centre will officially open at 9:00am on Thursday 1 October 2015 after a ribbon cutting ceremony.

The fear back then was that if left unchecked, the embers of economic activity might cause the same inflationary fires to come roaring back to life that the West had experienced in the late 1970s.
