The hoarding will finally come down Thursday morning to reveal Canberra Centre's new beauty and wellness precinct, the Monaro Mall.
The revamped section of the shopping centre, next to David Jones, will open to the public from 9am Thursday morning.
The glamorous precinct includes stores brand new to Canberra, Mecca Maxima, Jurlique, Perfect Potion, Inglot and 3ina.
Many stores that were already in the centre have also made the move to the new precinct, including Lush, Aveda, L'Occitane, The Body Shop, Crabtree & Evelyn, and Napoleon Perdis.
The centrepiece of the revamp is the beauty garden, a leafy area with a variety of scattered beauty kiosks, including Seoul Flower, bringing Korean Beauty to Canberra.
With a number of large international department stores creating their own sections dedicated to Korean beauty, Seoul Flower owner Matthew Develin said he saw the potential for Korean beauty in Canberra from running pharmacies.
"We did some focus groups and what we found out is pretty much all the Asian people that work for us or attended our focus groups that we ran ... [said] they don't use any of our skincare 'cause they say it doesn't work and they don't like it on their skin," Mr Develin said.
"So we said, 'well what do you use?' And they all said Korean skincare."
Seoul Flower is one of three kiosks in the beauty garden for Mr Develin, who also owns Muse Boutique, which will expand from its existing spot as part of City Market Chemist across from Tommy Gun's barber, and new offering Muse Food, selling quality packaged foods.
As part of the Monaro Mall's opening events, the centre is hosting master class sessions by Vogue Australia's beauty editor Remy Rippon, style influencer Eleanor Pendleton, vlogger Shannon Harris, nutritionist Lola Berry, and a sip and scent class with the Martini Whisperer Phillip Jones and fragrance expert Dimitri Weber.
Monaro Mall also has a new permanent master class space which will host regular events.
The upper level of the precinct is still under construction, and will open later in the year as a lifestyle and homewares precinct. Modern Japanese restaurant RAKU will also open in the coming months on the ground floor facing Bunda Street.
