The Landing secures key tenants

Artist’s-impression-of-The-Landing-media, The Landing, QueenstownThe Landing development in Queenstown has secured four more businesses to join its retail offering in Frankton.

Neat Meat, Odelay Cafe, and a hair and fashion concept store will open in stage two of the development in mid April 2015.

Stage one of The Landing is due to open December 1, 2014, with Repco, Australasia’s leading automotive reseller, the first of the anchor tenants to open its doors.

Lindsay Williams, director, said that The Landing is shaping up nicely, with a great mix of national brands and local names.

“Our newest tenants showcase the great and varied mix we’re aiming for at The Landing. Each tenant complements the others and brings something new to the table, giving people yet another reason to stop-by. We’ve worked hard to get that balance right and provide the local community with new and exciting stores and services.”

The Landing, Queenstown’s latest retail development, is in a high profile position, opposite the entrance to Remarkables Park Town Centre and adjoining Queenstown Airport.

It is set on a 1.2 hectare site, with 16 retail units, and 110 car parks.

The Auckland-based company Neat Meat will be opening its second retail store, in addition to a wholesale business.

Tim Eriksen, Neat Meat director, said that the company is very confident and excited to be adding to its business.

“We already source a lot of our meat from the local Otago and Southland region for our Ponsonby operation so this is a natural step for us,”  he said.

Sisters Christine and Sharron Holland are launching Queenstown’s first hair and fashion concept store, the only dedicated store of its kind in the region.

The shared space will house Cutting Edge hair salon and a boutique fashion store.

“The Landing presents us with a great opportunity to bring something really unique to Queenstown. It’s taken us 25+ years in town to do it but it’s going to be fantastic,” Sharron Holland said.

The alpine-inspired Odelay Cafe owned by Ed and Bryony Devereux will occupy a sheltered north-facing position at The Landing, with superb views, and indoor and outdoor seating.

Ed Devereux said that “the interior has been carefully designed with a modern Scandinavian style and a few of our own touches”.

The Landing has a limited number of medium to large format retail premises of 50 to 1000sqm available, and it is anticipated that all leases will be filled by early 2015.
