WITH the new multiplex cinema and shopping complex nearing completion, the Damodar City Centre hopes to employ between 350 and 400 people.
This was confirmed by Damodar Brothers chief executive officer Div Damodar at the signing on of another tenant, Mango CafÃ© Flavours of Fiji.
"Although we cannot speak for our tenants, we estimate around 350 to 400 jobs," Mr Damodar said.
The $30million investment is in its final stages and has leased out 75 per cent of space to hopeful businesses, restaurants and stores.
This week the Damodar team added Mango CafÃ© to their list of tenants, saying the move was an exciting one.
"They (Mango CafÃ©) have a lot of fantastic ideas," Mr Damodar said.
Mango CafÃ© founding director Kalara Vusoniwailala said they were excited about joining the complex.
"We've seen other businesses signing up, so we're now getting onto the gravy train to Damodar City and it's really exciting," she said.
"We hope to invest between $30,000 and $40,000 into this franchise because it's all about business and we can see the numbers.
"It's pretty much a no-brainer."
Mango CafÃ© began its operations four years ago as a simple cafÃ© which served coffee, breakfast and lunch.
"We then advanced to doing dinner and now we have so many innovative ideas. But we need Damodar to make it happen," Ms Vusoniwailala said.
The complex is expected to open sometime within the first quarter of the year.
