Up Property’s mixed-use development, Morris Moor, will become home to much-loved patisserie, Penny for Pound and cult burger restaurant, Royal Stacks at the now transformed Moorabbin site in Victoria, previously occupied by Phillip Morris for more than half a century.

The new tenants join fellow top tier leases including brewpub, Stomping Ground, which is in the final stages of construction of their 1,250 square metre space, e-commerce co-working and co-warehousing space, Clik Collective, Satara & Shots Home Emporium, and ASX-listed Infomedia, among others.

Morris Moor’s current stages are due for completion by end 2021 with limited opportunities remaining for new tenants wanting to join the hospitality precinct.

“The Morris Moor development stood out to us for the industrial feel, which is in keeping with the design of our existing location in Richmond. Moorabbin is an up-and-coming suburb, with lots of young families and professionals and we are looking forward to creating a welcoming venue that is perfect for their weekly pit stop,” owner, Matilda Smith said.

Penny for Pound has secured a 1,090 square metre site to include a full production bakery and patisserie, gelateria as well as a 100-seat café, which expands on its existing patisserie business in Richmond.

Royal Stacks will serve burgers in a 170m square metre site with retro 90’s inspired interiors to match the menu of burgers, shakes, curly fries and fried chicken, as well as its own podcasting booth in-store.

Royal Stacks founder, Dani Zeini said, “We are excited to join Moorabbin locals and visitors from across the south-eastern suburbs as part of Morris Moor. We were drawn to the communal areas the precinct offers and felt it was a great space, location and community for our growing brand.

“The pandemic not only shifted our business strategy, but it changed what people want from their dining experiences. So, we are now designing spaces in a way that draws people out of their own homes and injects the fun and excitement into going out again.”

The Morris Moor development is already home to more than 130 businesses and boasts a 120-place childcare centre by Kids Club, offices showroom and an expansive 4,000 square metre indoor industrial carpark with activation, market and event opportunities.
