DESIGNER seating, lush plants and free WiFi all feature in the Canberra Centre’s new-look, $20m lower ground food court.
Fourteen new food outlets, three retail stores and almost double the seating are included in the refurbishment, officially opened today.
Among the features are “intimately lit” seating zones, hand-made glass light fittings, and a wall of live plants.
Senior centre manager Karen Noad says with free WiFi and a new Xpresso bar, the layout is now “an ideal location for relaxed business meetings.”
“The new food court also has greater connectivity to David Jones and Myer…it provides customers with a convenient casual dining experience in a stylish environment,” she says.
Some stores in the food court prior to the refurbishment remain, including Sumo Salad, McDonalds, Priceline and Flight Centre, while popular Mexican restaurant Mad Mex and Vietnamese takeaway Roll’d are new additions. Book chain Dymocks has relocated to the area.
Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development Simon Corbell will officially open the refurbished food court tomorrow.
