As of 1 January 2018, the management of the City Centre Marketing and Improvements Levy transferred from In The City Canberra to the City Renewal Authority. Views expressed in these articles may not reflect the views of the Authority.
Canberra’s oldest mall, the Monaro Mall, will re-open to the public tomorrow having undergone a facelift that unlocks an array of fresh franchises to Canberrans.
A show of confidence in the Canberra market is the reason behind the launch of the Canberra Centre’s newest upgrade, proven by the much-anticipated arrival of multinational fashion retailer H&M in late November.
Shoppers can visit the new facility hosting renowned stores Haigh’s Chocolate, Husk, Le Crueset, top3 by design, Les Nereides and The Pen Boutique just in time for the Christmas shopping season.
In the City Canberra CEO, Jane Easthope is thrilled by not only the economic and commercial benefit the extensions bring to the CBD but the show of faith in the growing Canberra region from commercial franchises.
“This development really shows confidence in this City as a place to invest, because there is now a Canberra market supporting the top end national and international brands,” Jane said.
“The fit out there is just gorgeous, it’s light and modern – it’s great to see the Canberra Centre responding to the times.” Jane added, “it’s also great to see the Canberra Centre increasingly address the street and improve the visitor experience on both sides of the share way in Bunda Street and alongside their frontages onto City Walk and Petrie Plaza.”
To kick off the evolution of Monaro Mall, a series of exciting Masterclasses will take place featuring Donna Hay, Lucy Feagins, Bec Judd, Megan Morton and Kyla Kirkpatrick. It also heralds the start of the month-long DESIGN Canberra Festival (link) with over 100 things to do, see and talk about.
