$155M NorthWest Shopping Centre opens
It may not be on your map yet, but Auckland has just gained itself a new town centre.
Mayor Len Brown will today cut the ribbon on the first major project - a mall - in the new Westgate town development near West Harbour.
The council has provided infrastructure to the area and is now hoping the $155 million NorthWest Shopping Centre will attract families.
The city will also provide a new town square for the area - named Te Pumanawa - which will connect the mall to a planned library and community centre, with construction of 1500 residential units allowed in the district plan.
