Global fashion brand Zara has taken the keys for its first New Zealand store at Kiwi Property’s Sylvia Park in Auckland.
Kiwi Property has constructed the shell of a brand new 2528 sqm store, with Zara to commence fitout in time for a Spring opening.
Kiwi Property’s GM Retail, Karl Retief, says the company has invested $11.5 million to create Zara’s new store in an eight month development program.
“The new site, located in the heart of Sylvia Park, has an extensive store front which is five times the size of one of our standard fashion retailers.
“We are always looking to innovate at Kiwi Property to ensure we’re delivering the very best experience for our shoppers,” Retief said.
Sylvia Park has seen a number of new retailers open at the centre in recent months, including Lush and Converse, with Nike and Kiehls coming soon.
Later this year, New Zealand’s first H&M store will also open at Sylvia Park.
