Westfield Kotara’s new dining and entertainment precinct, The Rooftop, opened today, with hundreds of people keen to get a first glimpse.

“We’ve created a community space where people can come and feel like this is an extension of their family home,” says Centre Manager, Ryan Burns.

The $55-million open-air development will house nine restaurants, and be home to live music and a cinema complex.

The movie side of things is due to open in mid-December, just in time for the new Star Wars film.
