As an integral part of Melbourne’s unique laneway shopping culture with boundaries along Lonsdale, Little Bourke and Spencer Streets, this ground-floor retail precinct stands in the new and emerging ‘New York inspired’ heart of the CBD.

Sitting directly underneath four Upper West Side residential towers, home to 2,207 apartments, and opposite Southern Cross Station and the Spencer Street Outlets, this high-traffic thoroughfare benefits from existing retail, business, entertainment and residential precincts in its surrounds.

The site itself is rich in history, being Melbourne’s first power station built in the late 1880s. With its soaring high ceilings and possibly high trusses, the building was once known as the ‘coal economiser’, used to recycle coal materials for the power station.

At its peak, the station provided electricity for over half the city grid and generated enough hydraulic power to fuel all of Melbourne’s first lifts.

Today, the site has come to life as a go-to destination for the many residents and visitors alike as it continues to shape the city’s emerging café and food culture through high profile retail and restaurant collaborations that contribute to the surrounding urban fabric.
