The $790 million redevelopment of Westfield Newmarket is by far the largest scheme of its type in New Zealand, bringing the biggest new shopping centre to the single wealthiest residential enclave in the country.

The mega-mall now nearing completion by Australasia giant shopping centre owner Scentre Group will see 230 new shops open across many levels, replacing the outdated, inward-facing mall which has traded on the site for decades.

WHO WILL VISIT?

The new centre is directly aimed at 530,000 people in the immediate vicinities, residents in the trade area with a total annual estimated retail spend of $8.87 billion.
