The shopping centre was ultra modern when the ribbon was cut in 1959 and the first ‘mall’ style shopping to be built in Auckland.
Now ready for a refresh, the town centre is the subject of a large scale redevelopment project by Panuku Development Auckland. Panuku has released a benchmark masterplan for the new town centre and says work will begin in 2021 and take 7-10 years. The town centre will be redeveloped in stages so that it can continue to provide for the community throughout this period.
The development of the greenway will also create a green and pleasant way to get from the neighbouring streets to the town centre on foot or by bike. Find out more about the benchmark masterplan at Panuku’s Northcote page.
