Millson DevelopmentsRetail and Hospitality
(pre-leasing now for early 2022 opening)
The curved form of building facing Wills Street has been designed to draw your eye towards the northern edge, whilst at Garsed Street the park is in stark contrast the commercial frontages that dominate the public realm. These two features combine to invite pedestrians into a weather protected and vibrant laneway that will be home to boutique retail and hospitality businesses and also serve as the private entry, to the residential levels above.
Being below what will be Bendigo’s most sought after business hub as well as three levels of housing, the laneway will be activated by the community that share the building. This, combined with the striking form of the building and its role as a pedestrian link from the Bendigo Market Place/ Railway Station to the historical CBD, makes it easy to see why Wilson Lane will be a celebrated and iconic place within Bendigo.
Currently leased to Ex Lion tamer Café, we worked with the tenant to provide a undercover outdoor dining area for 60 people, a takeaway window, on site organic waste processing facility, and assisted with the fit out as part of the lease negotiation to create an inviting, stylish and comfortable environment.
