The Portico at Kenmore Village Shopping Centre Set to Open April 2019

Construction of a stylish outdoor dining area at the Kenmore Village Shopping Centre is currently underway and is slated to open in early April.

The Portico, designed by Earthsong Architects, is the Centre’s answer to shoppers’ feedback received during a market research. As revealed in the research, Kenmore Village customers are looking for more food options and a place to dine and spend a date night, catch up with friends, or have dinner with the kids.

Once completed, The Portico will have front tenancies Café Fiori and Shop 55 opening onto the dining area. The outdoor dining area is intended to provide customers of the Centre a comfortable and stylish area to relax whilst enjoying great food.

Works at The Portico project will include: 80-sqm covered outdoor seating area — booth style and loose seating — with a capacity of about 80 people; 3 large ceiling fans and full length blinds; new landscaped garden and attractive arbour; relocation of emergency vehicle bay to the opposite side of the entry driveway; installation of new loading bay and two new grease traps.

Owners of Kenmore Village, Jen Retail Properties Ltd, said that they are delighted with the prospects of providing improvements to the amenity and ambience of the Centre which will in turn enhance the enjoyment of its shoppers.

The Portico is expected to open in time for Easter 2019.
