First stage of Botany Town Centre’s $78 million development opens

East Auckland shopping centre Botany Town Centre launched the first stage of a $78 million revamp that’s expected to wrap up by the end of this year.

The centre opened in 2001 and is managed by AMP Capital on behalf of private owners.

Its new development will expand the centre to 62,700 square metres, including an extension to the fashion pavilions which will see the number of tenancies grow to more than 200 stores. An extended landscaped area outside the pavilions includes a children’s play area and seating for dining.

Its Hoyts Cinemas has also been refurbished, and now offers more than 1,000 powered recliner cinema seats.

Among the 19 new retailers opening this autumn at Botany Town Centre are anchors Mecca Maxima and H&M, plus Platypus Shoes, Stewart Dawsons, Decjuba, Postie, Westpac, Sunglass Hut, Connor and The Cosmetic Clinic. A new food offering includes the first New Zealand branch of Australian sushi retailer Sushi Sushi, plus Gong Cha, PappaRich, Starbucks and Presshouse Coffee.

The centre is also working with existing retailers during the refurbishment, with Novo Shoes, Hallensteins and Pandora expanding into brand-new, larger stores.

Currently underway are upgrades to enclose the outdoor area of Garden Lane, which will reopen this winter. The final stage of the $78 million upgrade is slated for completion in late 2019. 

Botany Town Centre development manager Paul Hudson says of the redevelopment:

“The degree of interest from popular brands in Australasia and around the world, who can have their pick of locations, is indicative of the wide appeal of Botany Town Centre. We are developing from a strong footprint and combining what’s new with the best of the established centre, and we expect shoppers and the broader Auckland community to be thrilled by what they will see soon.”

AMP Capital managing director shopping centres Mark Kirkland says: “Botany Town Centre which we manage on behalf of its owners, is a key retail, entertainment and community hub in the greater Auckland region, and investment was crucial to ensure the centre remains a desirable destination that meets the needs of a diverse and growing community. 

“This first and largest stage of the development offers an improved expanded space to bring customers together with some of the best local and international retailers New Zealand has to offer. The degree of interest from popular brands here and globally, which can have their pick of tenancies, is indicative of the wide appeal of a refurbished Botany Town Centre. The centre is developing from a strong footprint and combining what’s new with the best of the established centre.”

How HomeAR is incorporating AR into architecture design

Many people struggle to envision plans from simple 2D renders and floor plans, as without a designer's eye, filling in blanks from imagination isn’t the most reliable method when it comes to something as important as building a brand-new home or store. Reactar has launched an augmented reality-based platform, HomeAR, to counteract this, which allows users to see and engage with homes in a virtual way, making the very personal process more reliable.
