The Eddy Avenue Plaza at the North Exit of Central Station is set to be transformed into Sydney’s latest food and entertainment district with a host of new arts, restaurants, bars and shops. Named EDDY, the initiative to revitalize this section of the station was announced by Minister for Infrastructure, Cities and Active Transport Rob Stokes as an additional element to the huge revamp and refurbishment of Central Station which will include a massive tech hub and the longest escalators in the Southern Hemisphere.
The Eddy Avenue Plaza currently houses a few take-out cafes and restaurants, but has remained largely underutilized. EDDY Neighborhood will bring an array of new openings to the busy downtown thoroughfare, adding to the trend of new food districts emerging across Sydney.
Stokes compared the innovation of Central Station to neighboring Chippendale’s Spice Alley and Sydney’s new western district, Parramatta Square.
“Central Station will no longer be just a thoroughfare,” Stokes said. “The rebranded EDDY marks a new era for the Tech Central Precinct as it becomes a world-class hub with innovative and diverse businesses attracting thousands of new jobs to the CBD. “
Over the past two years the city has welcomed new food, drink, arts and entertainment districts in South Eveleigh, the lanes of York, Clarence and Kent streets, Circular Quay, Parramatta and Mascot.
Neither sellers nor an opening date have yet been announced, however NSW Minister for Business, Investment and Trade Stuart Ayres promises more information is on the horizon.
“We hope to be able to announce an opening date in the coming weeks as we move forward with this project which will bring new life to the area surrounding Central Station,” said Ayres.
