Sydney’s newest downtown laneway retail precinct, Kensington St, has launched but only for those worthy to apply.

Located on the eastern boundary of the $2 billion master-planned Central Park project in Chippendale, Kensington St by Greencliff has launched 26 tenancies for lease, including 14 food and beverage and 12 specialty retail, comprising 3,000sqm of gross floor area spanning 160 metres of direct street frontage. 

Greencliff, which is both developer and leasing agent for Kensington St, is pleased to launch the unique heritage-conversion laneway precinct to the creative district of Chippendale and where the “who’s who” of food seem to be gravitating.

Part of the precinct includes the Unlisted Collection’s boutique hotel, The Old Clare, which has secured top UK chef, Jason Atherton (Pollen Street Social, Equina) to head up a stellar line-up including Clayton Wells (Momofuko Seiobo) and Sam Miller (Noma).

Already in talks with some of the world’s biggest-name chefs, fashion designers, artists and musicians – as well as a number of new up and coming ‘young guns’, Greencliff Executive Director, in charge of leasing, Marcus Chang says this is a rare opportunity for ambitious individuals to showcase their talents.

“Greencliff are in the midst of carefully curating a melting pot of some of the edgiest and highly acclaimed talents in the world – who are all eager to showcase their wares in perhaps differently seen ways at Kensington St,” said Mr Chang.

“Although all a closely guarded secret at the moment, we are talking to a wide range of talented professionals – some of whom are at the height of their career – others about to break-through – and it’s very exciting for other businesses that are looking to make their mark in what will become Sydney’s most lively lifestyle, hospitality and creative district.

“The entire Chippendale/Redfern/Eveleigh area is undergoing massive transformation and yet the original character and ‘underbelly’ of the suburb if you like, has remained, layered with this somewhat edgy, raw, gritty yet contemporary offering.
