Mirvac Group (“Mirvac”) [ASX: MGR] is pleased to announce the completion of the new retail and dining precinct at Riverside Quay, Melbourne.
The recently opened culinary quarter presents 10 new eateries peppered throughout the ground plane of Riverside Quay’s four commercial buildings. Together with the existing Southbank Promenade restaurants, the new retailers will create an enhanced, vibrant food and beverage offering, emulating the ambience and buzz of Melbourne’s famous laneways.
Riverside Quay now offers a mix of grab-and-go, casual dining and lunch options, as well as restaurants to suit all tastes. A range of international cuisines and cult brands including Jiaozi by Shanghai Street Dumplings, Old Man Pho, Infinite Wasabi, Thailander, Poked, Dagwood Deli, Workshop Brothers, 30ml Coffee and D.O.C. (opening early 2019), make up the all-star line-up.
Anchoring the new food hub is San Telmo’s, newly opened Asado Bar and Grill, which features meat cooked over a grill and wood fire, but with an Argentinian twist.
Group Executive, Office – Mirvac Property Trust, Andrew Butler said, “The opening of a new retail destination at Riverside Quay is the most recent piece in an extensive revitalisation of the precinct which included the development of a new flagship office building and a public park.
“We’ve transformed the waterfront to create a place where people can work, relax and dine, activating the area beyond the nine to five work day. The refreshed food offering has been carefully curated to cater to the needs of our high calibre tenants and the wider community.”
Mirvac partnered with Six Degrees Architects to reimagine the Riverside Quay precinct. Reconfigured office lobbies, together with new paving, canopies, feature lighting, outdoor seating and improved wayfinding have resulted in a refreshed ground plane.
Working closely with the City of Melbourne and the local community, Mirvac has delivered a public park at Riverside Quay.
“The park is the perfect extension of the new food and dining district, creating an engaging space for the hundreds of workers, residents and visitors that pass through the area each day. We’ve already seen a huge increase in foot traffic at Riverside Quay and have received extremely positive feedback from the community on the renewed spaces,” added Andrew.
In the lead up to Christmas there will be a lot of activity in the Laneways at Riverside Quay including live music, entertainment and special offers from the retailers. Join in the fun every Wednesday and Thursday night, 5pm to 8pm, from 5th to 20th December 2018.
