City Centre Revitalisation

Centre Place Hamilton, New Zealand

Centre Place

Hamilton, New Zealand


Centre Place in the heart of Hamilton's city centre is a leading retail destination for fashion, food and entertainment.

Redevelopment of the CBD shopping centre has revitalised the Centre and provided an expanded and improved food and entertainment offer making Centre Place a major city destination that meets the expectations of the urban shopper.

Buchan provided an integrated package of architecture, interior design and a coordinated environmental graphics program for the project, which was the first stage of a $20 million redevelopment.

Two existing food courts were consolidated into one cohesive destination and an under-performing external retail zone was transformed into a sophisticated dining precinct.

To complement the food court offer, street parking and three under-utilised tenancies were converted into a lively street comprising six eateries, an outdoor dining terrace and new entries that linked the precinct to a boutique cinema and mall.
