About Us

The Colombo stands as one of Canterbury’s elite retail and entertainment establishments. It builds on the region’s iconic and organic character with a distinctive, European-inspired niche that indulges in world class trends.

What defines The Colombo is its harmonious blend of retailers, including an arts cinema, European-style bars, decadent culinary providers and many fashion, beauty and home ware boutiques. The residents share an innovative attitude towards retail, and connect the people of Canterbury with pioneering international offerings that effortlessly fuse with local lifestyles.

Owners and renowned property developers, the Cooper family, bring their architectural supremacy to the centre, giving it a unique aesthetic edge. The carefully thought out location in the downtown suburb of Sydenham makes for an easily accessible destination in an evolving district, with one entrance on Colombo Street and another in the Elgin Street car park. 

The Colombo is proudly New Zealand owned.
