Residents began moving into the NewCity apartments several months ago and the retail shops and restaurants have been quietly opening one at a time.
This Friday, October 30 through Sunday, November 1 NewCity’s 360,000 square feet of retail, dining and entertainment space will come alive with special offers and fun events and entertainers in the outdoor plaza. The NewCity apartments will be open for tours throughout the event.
The grand opening kicks off Friday morning at 9:30 am with a ribbon-cutting that features live performances by the British School’s children’s choir, Kings Bowl mascots and Barci, the Nando’s Peri-Peri mascot.
Throughout the day, until 6 pm, the plaza will host stilt walkers, face painters, balloon hats and Else and Olaf characters from Frozen. Live performances will continue on Saturday from 10 to 4:30 and Sunday from 1 to 4.
NewCity retailers will offer their own activities throughout the entire weekend. Special discounts; gift card giveaways; tours and free food will be offered.
NewCity businesses include: Adobe Gila’s, ArcLight Cinemas, Asha SalonSpa, AT&T Store, DICK’S Sporting Goods, Earls Kitchen + Bar, Evereve, James & Sons Fine Jewelers, IT’SUGAR, Kings Bowl, LYFE Kitchen, Mariano’s, Nando’s Peri-Peri, Yard House; and Z Gallerie.
