The new city block located above North Sydney’s Victoria Cross Metro Station has announced its first line-up of hospitality operators set to open in 2024.

The North Shore is set to get a taste of Inner West favourites at the new precinct, with Newtown’s Mary’s and Marrickville Pork Roll both set to open venues.

Victoria Cross will also welcome Only Coffee, Top Impressions Bakery, Sushi Hub, Dopa, North Sandwiches, Machi Machi, and McDonald’s.

The precinct will also be home to a pedestrian laneway featuring more hospitality operators, alongside the neighbouring multi-level food and beverage venue Miller House.

Visitors can also expect five new terrace restaurants on Miller Street that will operate during the work week and across weekends.

There are 20 venues slated to open across the precinct, with 13 opening next year in the concourse and laneway, and the remainder across Miller House, Miller Terraces & The Lobby in 2025.

“Victoria Cross is going to bring a new wave of hospitality offers to North Sydney – we are going to see a little bit of Newtown and a bit of Haymarket along with Sydney CBD icons joining some of the best from the North side of the bridge,” says Lendlease Victoria Cross Project Director Jessica Paterson.

“Victoria Cross will soon be a social business district for workers, visitors and locals and complement North Sydney council’s public domain strategy to foster thriving activity from East to West of the CBD.”

Victoria Cross’ first tenants are slated to open mid-2024 and will continue until late 2025 when the metro station is also expected to be complete.
