More about this product

The Gateway Retail Plaza in Leopold has a high-impact contemporary design since receiving a $42 million makeover to give the center a new identity. Inspiration was drawn from its coastal context with a striking façade from James Hardie. The project is comprised of a series of cafes and restaurants and a new village square with integrated children’s play area.
