Haven to become Brisbane's newest centre of foods

John James' RL57, the creators of the iconic James Street precinct in Fortitude Valley, have been commissioned to create another food destination in Brisbane's Gasworks precinct.

It will be set on the ground floor of Newstead's new luxury apartment tower Haven, which is currently under construction by developer HCAP Developments.

RL57 has already secured three high profile occupiers, Betty's Burgers & Concrete Co, Salt Meats Cheese and Jocelyn's Provisions.

Each of the groups have identified Haven as their preferred location within the precinct.

Betty's Burgers, which opened its first restaurant on Hastings Street in Noosa in 2014, has taken an eight-year lease of a 150 sqm space.

Salt Meats Cheese first opened in Sydney's Alexandria in 2012 and now has four more restaurants in Sydney and one in Surfers Paradise.

They have taken a nine-year lease over 170 sqm of space.

A little closer to home is Fortitude Valley's iconic cake, pastry and bread shop, Jocelyn's Provisions, which has a five-year lease deal for 60 sqm of space.

The new venture will be known as Newstead Provisions and will add to the retailer's existing James Street store.

All tenancies, which will be a mix of food and beverage, retail services and showrooms, will all overlook either Waterfront Park of the Gasometer public space.

It will cater to more than 5,000 new residents and the estimated 9,000 office workers expected to take up space in the Newstead area. 

The remaining four tenancies aren't expected to sit on the shelves for long and will be snapped up soon.

CBRE's Anna Dunworth and Chesters Real Estate's Greer Gittoes are handling the leasing.

“RL57 is applying the same knowledge and expertise that made James Street such a success to Haven,” Dunworth told the Australian Financial Review.

Set to be completed mid next year, Haven's retail space will comprise over 1,100 sqm beneath the 25-storey apartment tower.

All of Haven's 220 luxury apartments have already sold out. The penthouse collection was one of the leading premium owner occupier sales projects in Brisbane during 2015.
