Food options at Auckland’s new Commercial Bay development have been announced, with 40 new dining outlets set to open including one by Al Brown. The development will open in September and will host 120 retailers, 40 of which will be food.

Restaurants and bars will include homegrown favourites Burger Burger, Hawker and Roll and Simon and Lee, while there will also be an international influence with New York’s Saxon & Parole, London cocktail bar Genuine Liquorette and Mexican restaurant Ghost Donkey.

Scott Pritchard, CEO of Precinct Properties, said that the development will be open-air and has been designed to replicate the laneways of Melbourne.

“Commercial Bay is about offering something that is leveraging the city but is really unique,” Pritchard said. “Success for us looks like a tourist or an Aucklander meandering along and finding themselves in the middle of Commercial Bay.”

IHG’s flagship InterContinental Auckland on One Queen Street is also being developed by Precinct Properties next door, complementing the Commercial Bay lifestyle district.
