Brisbane’s newest homemaker centre, Skygate Home & Life, is now open.
Nick Scali and Pillow Talk, alongside James Lane and Sleeping Giant, were the first retailers to trade at the new homemaker centre, Skygate Home & Life, with other large format retailers Early Settler, Lighting Illusions and DecoRug to follow suit in the coming weeks.
The $18 million centre, which took 10 months to construct, was developed by Brisbane Airport Corporation’s (BAC) property division, BNE Property, with the intent to complement the already expansive retail offering at Skygate.
BAC’s General Manager of Commercial Businesses John Tormey said the 9,260m² facility was well received within the large format retailer leasing market and plans were well underway for the official launch.
“There has been solid interest from large format retailers following the announcement of the project and we’re thrilled with the calibre of retailers that we’ve secured at Skygate Home & life,” Mr Tormey said.
“Anchor tenants Nick Scali and TK Maxx, along with our other amazing retailers, make this a real contender in the large format retail market in Brisbane.
“We’re looking forward to a successful opening and have quite a number of promotional activities planned to help spread the word about this incredible new homemaker offering within the Skygate precinct at Brisbane Airport.”
The grand opening of Skygate Home & Life will take place on 10 November with a number of giveaways, discounts, promotions and more planned for the event.
Skygate Home & Life retailers will join other successful retailers within the Skygate precinct at Brisbane Airport, including heavyweights DFO and Queensland’s only 24/7 Woolworths.
Opening hours for Skygate Home & Life are Monday to Wednesday 9:00-5:30pm, Thursday 9:00am-9:00pm, Friday to Saturday 9:00-5:30pm and Sunday 9:00 to 5:00pm. It is located at 30 The Circuit, Brisbane Airport — adjacent to DFO Brisbane.
