Sydney Airport chasing proposals for new premium dining precinct
As part of its reinvigoration of T1, Sydney Airport is on the hunt for up to seven new food and beverage brands to launch as part of its new Marketplace concept.
Marketplace will be located in Pier B Departures beyond customs and the Airport is seeking a selection of gourmet urban, fast and fresh food concepts as well as premium Asian street food brands across a selection of cuisines including Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai and Chinese.
The precinct forms part of the improvement program that responds to airline and passenger requests for access to quality fashion, food and dining offerings with enhanced ambience and direct sightlines to the boarding gate lounges.
Sydney Airport general manager retail, Glyn Williams, said “The Marketplace will be one of Sydney Airport’s most exciting food and dining precincts offering passengers a strong mix of great street food style fare, especially Asian cuisine that blends traditional flavours with a contemporary offering. The soon to be raised roof height in the area will add to the dramatic backdrop of the airfield, while the casual seating layout will provide ample spaces for passengers to sit and relax in close proximity to their gate lounge.”
Earlier this month it was announced five new venues will come together to form the City View precinct located in the T1 International Departures terminal beyond customs. Wolfgang Puck will be opening The Bistro by Wolfgang Puck – a relaxed Italian trattoria-style dining experience, serving modern Italian fare including pasta and wood-fired pizza. Other concepts include Shannon Bennett’s new Benny Burger; Joe & The Juice, a bespoke Heineken House; and Mike McEnearney’s popular eatery Kitchen by Mike.
