Sydney’s next leading creative arts and cultural hub
Centrally located in the heart of the Inner West, the Victoria Road Precinct is transforming Marrickville into a totally unique and excitingly vibrant high street and night time economy. Covering approximately 18 hectares in area, the precinct will create increased employment and diversity, new creative industries, new parklands and new community uses benefitting local residents and attracting visitors to the area.
The breadth of unique, small scale cultural and arts experiences already existing across Marrickville will be enhanced by the new development underway and have the potential to add a unique new face to the tourist economy. The $48million Rich Street Creative Arts Hub (Timberyards) is being built to accommodate 460 artists, creatives, designers and start-ups. It will include markets, a central courtyard, cafe outlets and an outdoor events space. It will provide 460 jobs in arts, cultural industries and various other start-ups. There will be 7,200m² of new public open space and an improved tree canopy with 50 new trees.
Cafés, restaurants, small bars and craft breweries, pop-ups, galleries and exhibition spaces will line the streets and activate open spaces, making the Victoria Road Precinct an incredibly desirable place for work and fun. Existing open spaces and parks within the precinct will be updated as green, active and attractive public places. New parks and public spaces will be developed, including an open air cinema and an extensive landscaped rooftop area with bar to enhance the public domain. There will be a rotating program of community events for all to enjoy.

Featuring a great selection of architecturally designed, fantastically finished apartments to choose from, you’re sure to find the home that’s right for you.
