The town centre is situated on Northcote’s main road, Lake Road, opposite Greenslade Reserve.

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 2024 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.
