Hard on the heels of the opening of the James Pascoe Group’s Silverdale Mall, work is expected to begin on the neighbouring Briscoes Group retail development later this year.
Resource consent for the project was granted last November.
Managing director Rod Duke says that site works are due to commence in September or October and take around 12 months.
The development, on the corner of Millwater Parkway and Milner Ave, will include large format Briscoes and Rebel Sport stores as well as four smaller retail units, a café and car parks. Mr Duke says the centre will provide up to 40 local jobs.
Briscoe Group is the parent company of Briscoes Homewares, Rebel Sport and Living and Giving.
