This large site at the centre of the precinct is home to The Pavilions luxury retail and dining development and a valet parking drop-off point.
The Britomart Central Site is occupied by a pair of stunning retail and hospitality complexes that together make up The Pavilions at Britomart.
To the north is the new shopping and dining development that houses a range of designer fashion stores, beauty boutiques and restaurants, with the central drop-off point for the Britomart Valet personal parking service directly adjacent.
Across Te Ara Tahuhu Walking Street to the south are the black mesh Showcase structures. Designed by Nat Cheshire of Cheshire Architects, the temporary spaces accommodate an eclectic collection of stores and cafes.
Prior to the construction of these developments, the Britomart Central Site hosted many public events, including sporting events, music festivals, art installations and other cultural and community events. La Cigale Market at Britomart, a fresh local produce market, is held every Saturday on the adjacent Gore Street.
The site will eventually be developed with a state-of-the-art mixed-use building on a similar scale to the EY Building and Westpac on Takutai Square complex. The future Britomart Central Building will complete the fourth side of Takutai Square and be seamlessly integrated with the public spaces of the square and walking street Te Ara Tahuhu.
