History and development
The centre was opened in November 1967, and is believed to be one of the first shopping centers constructed in New Zealand. During 1987, the centre was extensively remodeled and was redesigned from an open air to an enclosed centre.
In 2016, Southmall Manurewa was nominated as one of the 'saddest' malls in New Zealand, citing a lack of development, an "uninviting and dangerous" vibe and Westfield Manukau City in the nearby vicinity attracting more appeal from shoppers.
The centre is easily accessed via public transport, utilising the adjoining Manurewa Train Station and bus interchange.
