The 1.7 million square ft development will be home to big name clothing brands, with more than 80 shops for members of the public to browse through.
But one of its other major selling points will be its food and drink scene.

Here are some of the restaurants, delis and bars that will be located in the new centre, which is scheduled to open in June this year.
