The Lord Mayor of Sydney, Clover Moore officially launches Gateway Sydney

Establishing itself as one of Sydney’s best dining destinations, today (22nd February 2017) The Lord Mayor of Sydney, Clover Moore officially launched Dexus’s (Dexus) recent retail development, Gateway Sydney.

With a focus on breakfast, lunch and dinner, trading seven days a week, diners are spoilt for choice with over 25 new eateries available across three spectacular levels. Among the offerings are some of Sydney’s most talented culinary experts who are now at home in Gateway Sydney.

Exciting all the senses are signature dishes and crowd favourites from the likes of, Neil Perry’s Burger Project, Popina Sydney, Four Frogs Creperie, Adriano Zumbo, Hurricane’s Grill and Gelato Messina to name a few.

Dexus CEO, Darren Steinberg said “We’re delighted with the vibrancy that Gateway Sydney has brought to one of Sydney’s most significant precincts. The precinct showcases an exceptional range of Australian food and beverage offers in one collective location, providing a fitting gateway to Sydney Harbour and the CBD.”

Gateway’s owner Dexus Wholesale Property Fund has invested $80 million into the future of Circular Quay achieving a great result for all stakeholders.

Recognising the historical significance of the Jessie Street Gardens, Dexus redeveloped the space in partnership with the City of Sydney. With an impressive façade on Alfred Street, the added transformation of Jessie Street Gardens has seen Gateway Sydney become an integral part of the Sydney CBD. Connecting 31,000 workers from surrounding offices, it provides a vibrant dining destination that both locals and Sydney’s 9.2 million annual visitors can enjoy.

Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore said, “The $80 million investment of Gateway Sydney has enabled a re-working of the important Jessie Street Gardens - named for the great feminist, international peace campaigner and campaigner for Aboriginal rights. I’m glad to see her remembered, and proud to officially launch this great new space.”

Creating an iconic precinct in one of Australia’s most visited destinations, Dexus has worked with architects Woods Bagot in collaboration with MT Retail Design Concepts to design a unique space that encourages diners to explore a fusion of new tastes whilst creating memorable dining experiences.

Recognised for its unique design, diverse offering and contribution to tourism and the local area, Gateway Sydney has successfully captured ‘The Art of Eating’ and truly redefined the Circular Quay dining scene for locals and visitors alike.
