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.
The team behind San Telmo and Pastuso has signed its latest venture, Asado Bar and Grill, due to open in April 2018 as part of Mirvac’s transformation of Riverside Quay. Asado will occupy a prime 450-sqm space overlooking the new park at what will be known as Riverside Square.
Co-owner David Parker said, with a menu focused on meat cooked over a grill and fire, Riverside Quay was the perfect place for the venue’s style of dining.
“Riverside Quay really appealed to us due to the corner location of the restaurant, opposite the public park, with high glass windows flooding the venue with natural light,” he said.
“It also has the option for indoor and outdoor dining, the perfect spot for lunch, afternoon drinks or dinner with views to the Yarra River.”
Mirvac’s group executive of office and industrial Andrew Butler said the retail destination at Riverside Quay would rival the dining options in the CBD and would cater for residents, visitors and office workers.
“With 2 Riverside Quay fully leased before completion to PwC and Fender Katsalidis, the new retail precinct and public park will complete the redevelopment of the precinct providing a high level of amenity,” he said.
Mirvac’s Riverside Square will open in December and the new dining and retail precinct is due to open in April 2018.
