Bayfair Shopping Centre breaks ground as $115 million development
13 December 2017
Bayfair Shopping Centre’s $115 million development has been given the green light.
The highly-anticipated development will give customers 50 more specialty stores, including a strong fashion mix new to the region, an all-weather alfresco dining precinct, the Bay of Plenty’s largest cinema complex - with seven screens and more than 1300 seats - and a new (relocated) Countdown supermarket.
The investment signals significant confidence in Bayfair and the Bay of Plenty region.
“Bayfair serves an important role in the wider community as a major shopping destination in the region, which is experiencing significant economic and population growth and huge seasonal surges in tourism. As the region grows, we want to grow with it, and the development is part of future-proofing for that growth,” says Bayfair Centre Manager Steve Ellingford.
The vision for Bayfair is to be the region’s year-round retail and entertainment destination, loved by a proud community.
Speaking of the development, Tauranga Mayor Greg Brownless congratulated the Bayfair team and AMP Capital, the owners of Bayfair Shopping Centre, on the successful launch of the first stage of this significant development. “It really marks a major milestone for Tauranga as this project reflects the growth and changing needs and demographics of our city,” he says.
