The development of a brand new retail centre, due for completion in 2021, will give businesses the chance to secure premium retail space in Auckland’s highly sought after Lunn Ave precinct.
Located at 86 Lunn Ave, Mt Wellington, the shopping destination has been thoughtfully designed to maximise convenience and accessibility, with dual access from both Lunn Ave and Marua Road, and 220 car park spaces fronting all retail tenancies.
The development will feature a purpose built garden centre and cafe, occupied by Kings Plant Barn, a single-level retail building, and a fully refurbished commercial building with ground floor retail and offices above.
Six new retail tenancies remain available for businesses to get their hands on before they are all snatched up. The spaces offer opportunities for complementary home-related retail and showroom occupiers.
Colliers International has been appointed to showcase the retail and office tenancies to the market.
Natinal director of retail at Colliers, Leroy Wolland, says the development is an opportunity for businesses to get a foot in the door at one of Auckland’s premier retail spots.
“New developments around Lunn Ave are continuing to attract local and national occupiers, with recent arrivals including The Warehouse, Noel Leeming, Bed Bath and Beyond, and a soon-to-be-opened Taco Bell.
“Kings Plant Barn will bring another big-name drawcard to the area, complementing a wide range of neighbouring retailers including New World, Farro Fresh, Mitre 10 Mega, PlaceMakers and many more.”
General manager of Kings Plant Barn, Chis Hall, says Lunn Ave is a prime location and the team are excited to become the go-to garden centre for Auckland’s eastern-central suburbs.
“The new centre will carry an extensive range of plants, gardening supplies, tools and more, along with exceptional service and gardening advice from our highly knowledgeable staff.
“There will also be a full-offer cafe, providing a relaxing space to socialise or simply take a short break from planning garden improvements.”
Wolland says the remainder of retail spaces on offer would be suited to home-related retailers looking to co-locate with complemetary businesses in a premium location.
“We’re looking for businesses that will add to and benefit from the overall tenancy mix. It’s a particularly good opportunity for homeware, bathroom, flooring and furnishing retailers.”
Michael van der Putten, commercial leasing director at Colliers, adds that the centre also provides great opportunity for small to medium office tenants.
“The location, size, and quality will appeal to a wide range of small to medium businesses, including local professional services. Space could also appeal to a larger company seeking a satellite office in a well- connected area with great retail amenity for staff.”
