Busy retail and service centre
Just over a year ago Westpac became the first tenant to open for business at Frankton’s $25 million Terrace Junction development.
Twelve months down the track, the multi-level complex at the junction of State Highway 6 and Frankton Road is a busy retail and service centre attracting thousands of visitors everyday.
The Terrace Junction complex is a vibrant place to visit and has become well patronised during the past year as a variety of new businesses have opened their doors.
The complex now houses 12 retail stores and offers shoppers more than 120 carparks which are scattered around the complex, half being under cover and offering convenient lift access to each of the buildings.
There are also a number of retail and office tenants operating from the complex which makes it a one-stop centre for many customers.
Whether you need to go to the bank, visit the dentist, get a haircut or meet friends for lunch, Terrace Junction has got it covered.
The complex offers a range of dining options including The Tin Goose Cafe, Thai and Sushi Terrace, Subway, Crisp & Vale Kitchen and Foodstore and Burger King.
The Tin Goose has become a popular spot amongst locals and visitors alike and there is now planning in progress for an outdoor seating area where cafe goers can relax in the Queenstown sunshine.
Meanwhile, a couple of doors down, Crisp & Vale Kitchen and Foodstore is attracting a large local following with its selection of fresh and frozen foods - including readymade dinners - perfect for those busy summer days.
Thai & Sushi Terrace is the latest business to open at Terrace Junction.
The family operated business offers a wide range of Thai dishes, which are complemented by a selection of sushi - the perfect option if you need to grab a quick healthy bite on the run.
Thai & Sushi Terrace is open for lunch and dinner, seven days a week and offers dine in and takeaway options.
Also located at the complex is a range of health and wellbeing services including Bridgman & Dean Optometrists, The Body Mechanics Physiotherapist, Queenstown Podiatry, Remarkables Dental and Proactive Physio.
Bridgman & Dean is proud to be the only optometrist in the Wakatipu which is 100 per cent Otago owned and makes 95 per cent of its customers’ glasses in its Dunedin premises.
Bridgman & Dean offers free digital glaucoma testing for those aged over 40 and offers free sun and UV tinting on your second pair of glasses - perfect for those long bright summer days.
Terrace Junction also houses Westpac Bank, award winning local business Medrecruit, Ecos Building Consulting, Paterson Pitts Surveyors, Findlay and Co Accountants, Housemart, Mike Pero Mortgages, Fuse Insurance & Risk Management, Camelot Professional Financial Advice, Mitchell Mackersy Lawyers, House of Travel, No Small Talk and MacStudio Graphic & Web Design
Terrace Junction owner Di Williams says they still have a small selection of tenancies available, both retail and office space.
She says businesses in the complex’s Small Office Suite had developed alliances and were networking regularly.
‘‘They comment on the spin-off of business that they receive from the staff and customers of other businesses within Terrace Junction.’’
The Small Office Suite businesses share the use of a top-quality board room and kitchen.
Legal, accounting, web design, insurance, investment, travel, property management, marketing and consultancy services are all on offer from within the suite.
Mrs Williams says two of the 12 small offices were still available for lease.
