Norton Street is a bustling hub of activity known across Sydney for its Italian heritage and cosmopolitan feel, and has in the past been compared to Melbourne’s Lygon Street. Restaurants including the adjoining Bar Italia were established in the 1950s, offering Australians a taste of the Italian cuisine and coffee culture, and Little Italy was born. The area has recently however been in decline, and the street is in need of urban renewal.
This boutique development will comprise 15 dwellings and restaurant premises on the ground floor, with interest having been propositioned to Ceerose for lease of the restaurant space and purchase of residential units even before we had completed preparation of the architectural plans.
The development has now been submitted to Leichhardt Council and is awaiting determination. It is hoped that Ceerose will be able to commence construction in the second half of 2015.
