ISPT’s Wintergarden shopping centre in Brisbane has unveiled the completed stage two $100 million redevelopment.

ISPT development director Chris McCluskey said Brisbane shoppers had been eagerly awaiting the re-opening of the landmark shopping destination.

“Today shoppers will experience their first taste of new-to-Brisbane brands including Coach, Sambag, Camper and Lee Jeans,” he said.

“The Wintergarden adds a new dimension to the Brisbane shopping landscape. Every care has been taken to ensure customers are provided with the complete shopping experience from the cutting edge design of the building to the mixture of stores and diverse product offerings.

“We have great confidence that there will be plenty of interest in what’s on offer from the Wintergarden retailers who open their doors to the public for the first time today.”

Retailers that have opened as part of the stage two include French Connection, Mecca Maxima and Camper.

At the same time, the redevelopment takes shopping centre eatery in Brisbane to another level.

McCluskey said it won’t just be the city’s fashionistas heading to the new Wintergarden in droves.

“Foodies will definitely be drawn in to get their first taste of the CBD’s newest food court,” he said.

“At more than 700 seats Wintergarden lays claim to the title of Brisbane’s largest CBD food court, with something on the menu to tantalise everybody’s tastebuds.”

The food court will cover all corners of the globe with offerings from BanZara Indian, FantAsia, Guzman Y Gomez, Hanaichi, Sushi Deli, Green Bean, Miss Chi Qi and McDonald’s.

The new Wintergarden features a three dimensional metal art façade that provides a dramatic facelift for the Queen Street Mall. The façade rises 25 metres to the building’s crest and extends nearly 90 metres down the Wintergarden’s Queen Street Mall frontage.

The Wintergarden opened its doors in 1982 as the Queen Street Mall’s first major shopping centre.
