About TOORAK CENTRAL
It is a comprehensive refurbishment of a landmark two-level commercial building, located in Suva’s Toorak district.

TOORAK CENTRAL will have various retail and/or office spaces on the ground floor and the first floor will offer studio and 1-bedroom apartments.

The original building was built circa 1950’s; the refurbishment will incorporate and enhance elements of the unique features of the original building.

A dash of industrial chic will also be added to the property, to pay homage to the historic industrial nature of commerce, in the Toorak area.

The comprehensive makeover of the property will include modernising internal spaces, complete upgrade of services as well as revamping the entire external façade.

Mount Sophia Group’s Founder and Managing Director, Avi Raju said: “Toorak is a busy and vibrant inner-city precinct.

“With TOORAK CENTRAL, we are substantially upgrading a historic building in a great location to create a unique landmark in Suva.”

“The ambiance and tenant mix will be akin to a stylish inner-city neighbourhood in Sydney, Melbourne or Auckland.”

“The TOORAK CENTRAL investment demonstrates our continued confidence in the Fijian economy.”

“While the COVID-19 pandemic has created challenges locally and globally, we have decided to proceed with the development and take advantage of various incentives introduced by the Government of Fiji to boost the economic activity,” he said.

 

Appointed Architects
The Internationally accoladed architectural firm, Architect Asia Pacific Inc (AAPi) Fiji, are the appointed architects.

Peter Rankin, AAPi Managing Director and lead architect said: “We are proud to be a partner on this project.

“The design elements feature hip and edgy industrial chic themes complemented by a modern building façade, lighting and user practicality,” Mr Rankin said.

Mount Sophia Group Business Development Director, Julianne Verma added, “We are thrilled to be working with the renowned AAPi.

“As TOORAK CENTRAL is strategically located, we expect it to be a catalyst for further gentrification of Toorak, making it the precinct it deserves to be.”

“We have spent much time on planning, to ensure we bring to the people of Suva, and Fiji, new dining concepts, boutique retail and stylish, conveniently located accommodation options.”

“We are excited to create TOORAK CENTRAL”
