Here at Style we love a good day out shopping, so we were super excited to hear about the amazing refurbishments happening at Westfield Garden City.
So what makes this refurb so amazing? Well aside from familiar names like MYER, Aldi and target plus 100 new speciality stores (names to be released in the coming months) Centre Manager Stuart Elder told us a little about the new look, so to be revealed late 2014.
“Westfield Garden City will be world-class in terms of design and we'll showcase our new offering to customers through several different areas, each with their own unique design and theme. The two standout areas will be the Fresh Food precinct and the Town Square.
“The Town Square will be transformed into a subtropical oasis with a multi-level outdoor restaurant and entertainment area, all connected to the centre by an Asian street-style food laneway. The dining precinct of the Square will have al fresco dining areas around a central water feature, offering a stunning resort style environment.
“The Fresh Food precinct will feature island outlets overflowing with fresh produce and open shop fronts creating a buzzing, market feel. There will be dark, textured floor tiles, brick-clad columns and exposed ceilings with raw timber feature lighting beams; really raw and atmospheric.”
So if the standard indoor shopping centres feel a bit stuffy to you, you’ll love the more modern, light, airy and state-of-the-art experience that makes the most of our beautiful tropical weather.
We’re particularly looking forward to visiting the new tree-lined walkways and tranquil spaces with lush planted gardens featuring mature locally grown trees and low level lighting.
With one of the largest trade areas of any Westfield in the country, we think the new look will make the centre the perfect place to meet up with friends, relax in the sun on daybeds and deck chairs, and enjoy events and live performances on the newly installed stage.
Centre management have assured us that they’ll be celebrating in style with a big unveiling of the centre with everyone invited!
“September is when we'll be launching our extended fashion offering, Fresh Food Market and Town Square - we can't wait!”
