Sydney office workers and residents will be offered a new retail concept with Romeo’s Retail Group opening a new European-inspired food hall concept at the $2 billion Brookfield Place Sydney.
The food hall will anchor the lower concourse retail level within Brookfield Properties office and retail development at the normally-busy Wynyard train station that connects to George Street. The office tower will be anchored by the National Australia Bank.
Brookfield Place Sydney sits atop the station and comprises a new 27-level office tower, with the revamped precinct set to deliver around 68,000 square metres of commercial office space and 6000 sq m of retail space.
Under the deal Locali has leased 1,260 sq m on a 10-year lease term with two further five-year options, and will be located on the lower concourse level within the Wynyard rail precinct.
Using similar concepts that office developers have embraced around the world for transit retail, the store will have a fresh food market featuring a walk-in cheese room, fresh butcher and dry ageing room, restaurants, and cooking classes.
Bridget Fea, national retail director, Brookfield Properties, said: “We are excited to bring style and innovation to what is a completely re-energised Wynyard precinct.”
