Our Refresh Has Begun

Our refresh has begun! 

You may have noticed that some construction has started in the Centre. All works will happen outside of the Centre's opening hours and all our stores are open for business.
 
The first changes you will see are some hoardings around Customer Services on Level Two. These hoardings are there to enclose the scaffolding and keep everyone safe while the ceiling is raised and lighting is installed. This is going to become a nice and bright space for our customers to relax. You'll still have access to all your favourite stores including; Life Pharmacy, Hannahs, Jacqui E and Texan Art School.
 
During this first stage Customer Services will remain in the same location, at the top of the escalators.

 

We've also started work on the Level One bathrooms and parent's room, next to the food court. These works require the facilities to be closed from the 17th to the second week of August, to undergo their beachside luxe transformation. During this time the Level Two bathrooms and parent's rooms will be open, you'll find these located in the corridor between Mi Piaci and Overland. Once the Level One bathrooms are complete we'll start work on the Level Two amenities.

 

Works on the Level One bathrooms and Level Two comfort zones has commenced.

The Centre's internal facelift will continue over the coming months to renovate our interior common areas, with major works to be completed by the end of the year. 

The multi-million dollar works will dramatically enhance your Shore City shopping experience. Through the introduction of our beach-side luxe materials, furnishings and styling choices the atmosphere and amenities are going to be completely re-energised.
 
So what can you expect to see?
 
First of all you're going to notice how light and bright the centre is, creating a relaxed shopping experience suited to our coastal location. The entry areas, foyers and walkways are being revamped from floor to ceiling. You'll see the introduction of timber throughout, with new seating options, artwork and soft furnishings to complement the natural materials. Italian  tiling will be used throughout the Centre and there's a new interactive play space for the kids on the way. The feature lighting being introduced to Level Two (as shown in the concept drawing below) symbolises the long white cloud of the Takapuna horizon.

Customer Services will continue to offer the same level of  service from the new marble and timber desk with increased lighting and raised ceiling adding to the ambience of the area. You'll still be able to purchase gift cards, hire kiddy cars, borrow strollers and wheel chairs, check lost property and most importantly get assistance from our friendly staff.
