Ten new food hall eateries have opened at Sylvia Parks’ new $277 million Level 1 expansion.
Called ‘The Terrace’ the food hall was blessed by iwi and includes a range of new eating options including: Hello Mister, Wu Cha, Biang Biang, Eat Indian, Daruma Sushi Train, Majestic Tea Bar Poke House, Master Boa and Honk Kong Station, as well as Filly and Aroy Thai downstairs.
The Auckland mall’s new Level 1, spans 20,000 square metres and blends a selection of shopping and entertainment, including the new dining precinct.
Level 1 has opened with all retail space fully committed including a cornerstone Farmers retail store, marking an important milestone for New Zealand’s retail sector, following the challenges of COVID-19.
“We’re delighted to open Level 1 and are looking forward to Kiwis having the chance to experience this fantastic new retail precinct for themselves. COVID-19 created challenges no one could have predicted, but together with our retailers we’ve delivered a shopping destination we’re incredibly proud of and we think customers will really enjoy,” says Kiwi Property CEO Clive Mackenzie.
While the vast majority of Level 1’s 57 stores have opened some of the international tenants will be delayed slightly, due to COVID-19.
“The pandemic has caused headwinds for our larger offshore retailers, due to issues getting stock, fitouts and key personnel to New Zealand. As a result some of these labels will open progressively over the coming weeks. It would have been great to have them open on day one, but we’re confident they’ll be worth the wait.” added Mackenzie.
