Barrack Place - Retail Precinct

 

About

Built in 1889, the Grand Central Coffee Palace on Clarence Street, in the Sydney CBD was then converted into Hotel Arcadia in 1929. It wasn't until the 1960s where 151 Clarence Street was then turned into, and remained an office building only until recently.

Now, more than just a commercial office tower, stands Barrack Place. A 23-storey brick facade with co-working spaces and ground-level laneway running through to Kent Street sets it apart from the city landscape. That laneway and it's adjoining arcade, now make-up Sydney’s most vibrant food and beverage retail hub.

The Journey

A new food and caffeine-filled laneway hangout has joined Sydney's CBD as Barrack Place opens to the public. Taking inspiration from the laneways of Melbourne and New York, the space has an industrial fit-out with a touch of art — there's a brick façade, black steel details and cobblestone streets, plus installations by Adelaide artist Amy Joy Watson.

Located in between Clarence Street and York Street, the precinct centres around an award-winning 23-storey tower that spans 22,000 square-metres of office space. But the ground level is the real food destination.


Public Art

The eye-catching sculptural artwork display of Barrack Place was created by the talented Amy Joy Watson with Urban Art Projects. The feature combines colour and creativity to further enhance the buzzing retail precinct at 151 Clarence Street and has already become a talking point of the new space. Don't take our word for it, come down and see for yourself at Barrack Place.
