About China Town
Situated on the busiest road of Manukau, Ti Rakau Drive, with a total area of nearly 7,000m2, the vision for Chinatown will include nearly 160 businesses. The location is indoors and the project has great diversity. There is an Asian gourmet street comprising more than 30 restaurant and fresh food and drink stalls, fashion stalls, electronics, health and well being and general merchandise stalls. There will also be import and export companies of various sizes, duty free shops, travel agencies and a wide variety of other business fields. Special features include traditional Chinese medicine and pharmacy exhibitions, tea ceremony performances, non-scheduled Chinese cultural performances, schools of Chinese language, etc. The site includes over 350 parking spaces surrounding the main building structure. It is the strong belief of the Chinatown developers that the project is not only for modern business operations, but an opportunity to showcase Chinese culture which can have a profound influence on better cultural understanding.
Well regarded economic analyst company Property Economics, predicts that Chinatown has an achievable future annual turnover of 40 million to 50 million dollars. Chinatown will definitely become another landmark in Auckland after Sky Tower and a new cultural hot spot for travellers, sightseers and ethic groups visiting Auckland and the country.
