NorthWest Shopping Centre is a shopping mall located in Westgate, a suburb in the northwest of Auckland, New Zealand. It is situated on the other side of Fred Taylor Drive from the pre-existing Westgate Shopping Centre. The shopping centre was opened on 1 October 2015 and consists of 100 shops on 2.7 hectares (27,000 m2) of internal floorspace.[3] Major anchor tenants at the mall include Farmers and Countdown.[4] NorthWest is owned and managed by Stride Property (formerly DNZ Property Fund).[2]

At the time of its opening it was expected to create up to 700 jobs.[5]

NorthWest Stage 2 was opened in October 2016 and contains restaurants, retailers and offices around Te Pumanawa Square.[6] Another 300 jobs were created by the 7,700 square metre extension, in addition to the existing 700 jobs.[1]

In 2017, Auckland Council and the developer of the mall sought dispute resolution over deferred payment of fees. There were also issues of use of a traffic island that was part of the council's plan for an intersection upgrade, and the need to abandon a bus interchange on a footpath that was on land owned by the developer.[7]
