Up-to-date development news

If you haven’t heard about it already, we’re excited to announce an expansion of Sylvia Park which is going to take your favourite shopping centre to the next level.

You can find all the details of the expansion here


Due to this awesome new development – which we’re undertaking to make your experience at the centre even better – we will be making some changes to roads and access.

So we can start construction on a new multideck carpark, the entrance from and exit to Carbine Road will no longer connect to the centre from 15 March 2018. There are four other ways to access the centre – via one of the three entrances on Mt Wellington Highway and via Musket Place, which is accessible from Waipuna Road.

For those walking and catching public transport, no need to worry! Pedestrian access to the centre and railway station will still be available as usual.

On completion of this carpark, the road will reopen and you’ll be able to enter the centre from Carbine Road and gain direct access to the carpark and the new Galleria level of Sylvia Park. At this time there will be around 5,000 carparks available at Sylvia Park. We can’t wait!

We will also see some changes in selected carparks.  From 14 March you will see the closure of

– A section of car park 1 on the western side of the centre

– The access ramp to the rooftop parking (carpark 11) and parking at the north end of carpark 11

We understand that your preferred parking space may now be unavailable for use. We have a live parking system on our website so you can check in real-time where carparks are available around the centre before you visit. We also have digital signage around the carparks for your convenience.

As a part of the expansion, the customer service desk will be moving. From 14 March the desk will move approximately 10m to the north, and will be located outside Jay Jays. You can visit our team for any queries, to purchase Kiwi Property gift cards, and more.

You may also notice hoardings erected in the area around Hannahs. This allows works to commence in this area. We encourage you to visit sylviapark.org, the centre’s Facebook page or the Customer Service desk if you need any assistance in finding a store.

Thanks so much for your patience and understanding while we undertake this work. We’re excited to bring the next stage of our journey to life and take Sylvia Park to the next level.
