Auckland Airport’s new shopping outlet centre moves into build phase
Construction has started on Auckland Airport’s new $200 million outlet centre, Mānawa Bay, with the build phase set to provide hundreds of jobs.
Once completed, the centre will have 24,000m2 of retail space, more than 100 stores ranging in size from 50m2 to 1500m2, and 1400 car parks.
Last year, Auckland Airport broke ground on the 150,000m2, or 15ha, greenfield site for the centre in the north-east of the airport precinct, and work on the building foundations was underway.
Auckland Airport chief commercial officer Mark Thomson said the project was moving into the build phase with the appointment of Savory Construction as lead contractor for the building, car park and surrounding landscaping.
