The Colombo

Early in 2011 RCG was appointed as centre manager to the Sydenham Central Shopping Centre; a centre that needed refurbishment to realise its full potential.

Following the earthquakes, we could see an opportunity to reposition the Centre as a more premium offering. The client agreed with our recommendation to rebrand the centre to ‘The Colombo’ and the major, consequential alternation and refurbishment.

Using our wide network of ‘connections’ we approached and met with a variety of national and boutique retailers, looking for tenants who would understand and share the new vision for The Colombo. We were successful in our search, managing to secure high end vendors such as Kimberleys, Redcurrent, Andrea Biani and Anna Stretton as key retailers in our tenant mix.

And it was the combination of these initiatives that helped increase the value of the Centre by over 60% in a little more than a year.
