Harold Park Tramsheds – Sydney’s hottest new food destination!

June 27, 2016

Crest Air Conditioning is proud to have been a part of the Harold Park Tramsheds redevelopment.

Industrial-sized food hall set to open in the heritage-listed Harold Park Tramsheds complete with historic graffiti and a restored tram

BILLED as Sydney’s hottest new food destination, the $34m Harold Park Tramsheds redevelopment at Rozelle is set to open in August and the makeover has been true to the site’s industrial heritage.

The newly restored heritage-listed Tramsheds will centre on provedores offering a range of food in a European-inspired food hall.

The Inner West Courier was given an exclusive sneak preview of the old sheds ahead of the launch.

The redevelopment of the buildings includes updated versions of its original features such as the saw tooth roof which was first constructed in 1904.

One of the original trams has been restored off site and will be returned as a dining carriage in one of the new restaurants.

Mirvac Development Manager Mark Zanetic said despite the building lying desolate since the 1950s, the original structure, foundation and walls were a feat of engineering considering the materials used at the time.

“Restoring a heritage building of this nature was not without its challenges, more so, because we strived to keep as many distinct features as possible including old staircases and the brick facade,” he said.

Head of Retail Susan MacDonald said the aim was to create a unique destination, staying true to the building’s iconic heritage and housing high quality retailers.

The food precinct will be open seven days a week and will include fresh produce, artisan products and a range of dining experiences under one roof.

High profile retailers currently on board at the site include restaurant, bar and butchery, Butcher & The Farmer, run by Head Chef Jared Ingersoll; sustainable seafood restaurant, Fish & Co; Brazilian tapas restaurant, Bodega 1904; Flour Eggs Water by A Tavola talented Chef Eugenio Maiale; and gelato kings, Gelato Messina.

Tramsheds’ supermarket retailer, Supamart will offer fresh produce, a delicatessen and seafood counter, an onsite butchery, a bakery and a dedicated health section over 2,440 square metres.

A further 12 foodie retailers are due to be announced over the coming months, alongside other amenities including a medical centre, gym, hairdresser and nail bar.

    Taylor Construction Group would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved from your company for their efforts in completing the Law Court project. We appreciate the hard work put in by all and understand that if it wasn’t for the collective effort, we wouldn’t have achieved such a fantastic result for the client, which allowed them to open each stage on their desired date. We have enjoyed working with you on this project and I hope we can continue the good working relationship we have formed on any projects that we may work on in the future.

    Most of us would have to admit that we’ve had our share of mediocre service from companies in the past. However, some companies are starting to "get it". They realise that in today's global marketplace, consumers have a greater number of choices than ever, therefore they are providing better buying experiences for customers to inspire loyalty, rather than depending on fancy schmancy ad campaigns. So on behalf of Virgin Active Norwest I just wanted to pass on a big thanks to our air conditioning service provider CREST. You have been instrumental in providing quality service at all times and as operations manager for this proud health club, I could not ask for more from your entire team, whether it is your service technician Prav being pro-active in all his work or the service team and yourself responding to all of our issues in a timely problem free manor. Thank you for your support, it is greatly appreciated.
