Bayfair Shopping Centre opens first phase

Bayfair shopping centre has officially opened the first phase of its $115 million redevelopment, with the opening day seeing thousands of feet through in anticipation of the new stores.

As part of this first phase, 30 new stores joined Bayfair’s retail offering, bringing new retailers to the Bay, the area is welcoming in Seed Heritage, The Source Bulk Foods, Peter Alexander and Cotton On Mega.

Moving into Bayfair for the first time are Dotti, Macpac, Portmans, Jacqui E and The Cosmetic Clinic. As Bayfair works through the current retail mix during the development phase, Rodd & Gunn and Max will expand into brand-new, larger stores and Merric, The Coffee Club and Dominos will return.

On completion in 2019, the development will see the centre become a fully integrated, single-level enclosed shopping centre, with an expanded footprint of 42,000 square metres and an alfresco dining precinct to complement what will be the largest cinema complex, United Cinemas in the Bay of Plenty.

Many anxious shoppers waited outside in the early hours of the morning to be first into the area, with reported crowds heading towards new international retailers such as Mecca Maxima.

With plans to finish the next phase in 2019, the expansion will increase its size by 9,000 square metres to a total of 42,000 square metres. It will house 150 stores, serviced by 1,800 carparks.

Community concepts: The team behind Britomart's new lovechild, Morningside

You may know Nat Cheshire from Cheshire Architects as the designer behind some of Auckland City’s most character-defining developments, such as City Works Depot and much of Britomart, or as one of our Most Creative winners. As 2018 draws to a close, Cheshire has debuted a new development with his name attached to it called Morningside. But instead of being a masterpiece he’s created for a client, this time around, it’s his and his friends’ own money on the line. Here, he talks taking his vision for Auckland into the suburbs, tapping into the culture of Kingsland and where he’s casting his eye to develop next.
