Host of retailers open at $2b Central Park precinct

Wonderland_Kensington Street corner shopsStarbucks, At Tea, Best Bite Convenience and doughnut shop Cross Lane have all launched new stores today at DUO, the penultimate development as part of the $2 billion Central Park precinct.

The development will be bolstered in the coming weeks by Fika, a concept from the team behind cafe-florist Cuppa Flower, as well as new eateries Fire and Coal and Talay’s Thai, totalling nine ground floor tenancies. The new names join outdoor apparel firm Kathmandu, plus global brands Superdry and Adidas.

“The new retailers in DUO will each play a significant part in re-introducing this section of Broadway to the people of Sydney, showcasing a diversity and quality in retail offering to serve a diverse, creative and cosmopolitan population,” said Tim Moore, general manager of retail leasing, Frasers Property.

“Central Park has been designed as a place to enjoy memorable experiences, to spend time and socialise, instead of just coming and going.

“We’ve interwoven the convenience of a Woolworths supermarket with an interesting restaurant and bar scene, amenities like Palace Central cinemas, and a carefully cultivated selection of speciality shops to give people a reason not only to shop, but to stay.”

When complete, Central Park will be made up of 2,200 apartments, 869 student dwellings, three hotels and approximately 25,000 sqm of hospitality space. Over 5,000 people will be able to call Central Park home, with around 1,750 employment opportunities.
