Auckland’s newest shopping mall is a third of a kilometre long and will be about the size of four rugby fields. The $160 million building will feature a Countdown store at one end and a Farmers at the other. It’s located off the Northwestern Motorway at Westgate Town Centre, between Maki Street and Gunton Drive.
DNZ Property Fund Chief Executive Peter Alexander said NorthWest Shopping Centre would be bigger than Newmarket’s 277, but slightly smaller than LynnMall, built on the city’s north-western outskirts, across Fred Taylor Drive from the existing Westgate shopping centre.
Alexander said the new 100-shop centre is fully leased, but 50% of the office space is still available.
The official opening is planned for Thursday, October 1.
