Portside Wharf IGA to Go Upmarket With Its Planned Expansion

Portside Wharf IGA will undergo a major expansion to target high-end customers with construction expected to commence in April 2022 and be completed mid-year.

The IGA Portside expansion comes as Portside Wharf is getting another high-rise residential tower. The project will expand the store’s footprint by 30 per cent to 1,036sqm enabling it to cater to the growing demand as the Hamilton area continues to score new high-end developments.

Once completed the expanded store will feature levelled-up offerings with a renewed focus on takeaway treats, grab-and-go food and health and well being including expanded meat, produce and delicatessen goods offerings; cheese bar; health food section and premium pet foods section for designer pets of well-off Portside residents.

There will also be a new in-house cafe, to be called “The Street Café” that will offer freshly baked items including muffins and croissants.

The expansion will add to the current offerings in the precinct which is home to more than 35 retailers ranging from fine and casual dining to boutique fashion and health and beauty. Current tenancies at the Portside Wharf include Dendy Cinemas, Sono Japanese Restaurant, Belvedere Bar N’ Grill, Subway, Urbbana and Studio Pilates.

Brothers Robin and Ramsay Zeneldin, who established Portside Wharf IGA in 2014, think that now is the time to expand given the incoming developments at Portside Wharf and the store’s continued growth in the past years.
