Foodstuffs buys Highland Park Shopping Centre

HIGHLAND_SHOPPING_CENTREFoodstuffs North Island has purchased Highland Park Shopping Centre with plans to bring a new shopping option to the high growth East Auckland area.

The centre will be designed to accommodate existing retailers and include a Pak’nSave supermarket. Foodstuffs said the redevelopment would take place “over time”.

“While we are still very much in the planning and evaluation stage, we are considering adding a Pak’nSave to the Highland Park and wider Eastern Bays area, which ultimately means we are able to offer customers more choice,” said Lindsay Rowles, Foodstuffs North Island general manager, property development.

“The details are still to be worked through. Our focus right now is on working with the existing tenants to ensure they have all the information they need as the redevelopment begins to take shape.”

Colliers has been appointed by Foodstuffs North Island as the managing agent for the Highland Park Shopping Centre.

“We know the news that Foodstuffs has purchased the shopping centre could mean uncertainty for its current tenants, and we are very mindful of this,” said Rowles.

Last month, Foodstuffs North Island announced its primary distribution centre (DC) and support office from Mount Roskill are moving to a new complex at The Landing Business Park, Auckland Airport.
