All-day eatery, Building 13

An opportunity for an experienced hospitality operator

A ground floor tenancy in Building 13 for a hospitality operator catering to workers, visitors and residents. In time the space will open out to a wetland garden.

A large, open hospitality space immersed in nature. This all day eatery is looking for an experienced operator that can bring a new food offering to Dairy Road. The space lots of natural light and has generous 4-metre high ceilings. It opens out to an outdoor licensed seating area and public space.  The space can be fully customised to suit the needs of its operator.


Building 13 is designed by Turner Prize-winning architecture, design and art collective, Assemble (UK) in collaboration with Jam and EllEll Architects (UK), Jane Irwin Landscape Architecture (AUS), CK Architects (AUS), Indesco (AUS) and Norman, Disney & Young (AUS). The building will be the first built as part of the industrious neighbourhood – where over time ten new buildings will be constructed to the north of the existing Building 3. The neighbourhood will support a spectrum of activities from production and manufacturing, sport and recreation, retail and community activities along with spaces for work.

Dairy Road is a 14-hectare site in Canberra’s East Lake next to the industrial suburb of Fyshwick and the Jerrabomberra Wetlands. So far at Dairy Road, an adaptive reuse approach has focused on interior architectural insertions in two existing industrial warehouses, providing workshops for makers and producers. More recently indoor recreation and wellness operators have also found a home in these repurposed spaces. Gardens have replaced asphalt and concrete providing shade, seating and open areas for events and play. These works have transformed Dairy Road into a destinational innovation and creative precinct with an established community of 40+ businesses working across art, culture and design, creative industries, technology, food production, hospitality, light industry, and recreation and health, attracting 800,000 visitors annually.
