25 dining concepts sign up for new $60m Circular Quay development
A new $60 million development, Gateway Sydney, will officially open at the Circular Quay end of Sydney’s CBD in September.
More than 25 new dining options will be unveiled as part of the Dexus development, rejuvenating Alfred Street Circular Quay. These include Burger Project by Neil Perry, Chat Thai, Messina Gelato, Din Tai Fung and an Adriano Zumbo concept.
Designed by architects Woods Bagot, Gateway Sydney features intersecting internal laneways on the ground level that then lead up to open, light-filled spaces above.
“The intent with Gateway Sydney was to open up the Circular Quay end of the CBD, which we have done with great respect to the existing environment, including the Heritage Listed Paragon Hotel and Jessie Street Gardens along Loftus Street. The surrounds set a spectacular stage for a dramatic dining experience to unfold, with each of our retailers serving their dishes with an element of theatre,” Dexus development manager for city retail, Liann Lim, said.
The ground level caf court will offer a mix of Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines, with offerings from popular Indian restaurant Bilu’s and The Gozleme Co., among many more.
On level one, more communal dining concepts will be on offer, including a 50-seat sushi experience by Hero Sushi Train, along with Chat Thai, Burger Project and Canberra-born Espresso Room.
Dexus city retail leasing manager, Pamela Medich, said there will be dining for all appetites and budgets.
“We’re thrilled to be able to provide city workers and visitors alike with a diverse and vibrant mix of eateries that will cater to all the dining occasions they may encounter throughout the day or week, while accommodating a variety of budgets.”
Venues will open from early September with more to come in October.
