Skyline Enterprises property manager Alastair Clifford said work started on the $26million refurbishment of the building, in February 2020, and the upgrade has helped to drag the facility into the 22nd century. The end result marked a ‘‘maturing of the resort,’’ he said.
Skyline had leased two retail floors of the four-level building on the corner of Camp and Beach streets, to global retail traveller DFS Group, which will soon begin its ‘Resort Galleria’ fitout. The top floor will house offices for DFS Group and Skyline.
Work on the lower-level food hall, dubbed ‘Eatspace’, is on track for completion at the end of next month. Eight tenants — yet to be confirmed — will then move in and finish off their allotments within the space.
While the project had been delayed — it was initially pegged for completion last September — Mr Clifford said that was more about ‘‘getting it right’’ than as a result of Covid holdups.
