A flash downtown shopping precinct is touting its success - despite Covid-19.

Commercial Bay opened at the bottom of Auckland's CBD amidst the pandemic.

The centre had nine million visitors over the year and increased traffic in the local area.

Precinct Properties Chief Executive Scott Pritchard told Mike Hosking Kiwis pulled them through.

“We thought international visitors might make up about a third of our visitors to the centre, so domestic retailers and shoppers have done us a real favour over the last 12 months.”
