The Snow family’s Capital Property Group has secured two eateries, including a flagship restaurant, a gym and a childcare centre as tenants for Constitution Place, its $300 million retail, dining and office precinct in Canberra’s CBD.

The company says The Meat & Wine Co, health and fitness provider Club Lime, childcare group Montessori Academy and Hero Sushi are set to bring a new vibrancy and add greater amenity to the precinct.

Due for completion in 2020, the Constitution Place development includes two iconic commercial buildings, including a 130-room hotel and a distinctive retail laneway between the two buildings, connecting Constitution Avenue with the Canberra Theatre.

A series of outdoor public areas are being created in the large public plaza between the development and the ACT Legislative Assembly as well as an intimate “pocket park” to London Circuit.

A series of outdoor public areas will be part of the development.

The Meat & Wine Co, Australia’s premium, paddock-to-plate restaurant will be the flagship food and beverage offering at the entry to the retail laneway.

Capital says its cutting-edge modern cuisine will cater to food lovers of all kinds, from weekend and weeknight theatregoers to weekday business professionals.

The restaurant is known for its fresh produce, exclusive line of beef, impeccable service and unique selection of wines, all in an opulent, Afro-centric design and setting.

Operations Manager Australia of The Meat & Wine Co Troy Mattingly said the business had been waiting for the right opportunity and premium location to open its first venue in Canberra.

“We believe Constitution Place is a perfect iconic site to showcase our broad value, food and beverage offering, personable service and Afro-centric atmosphere. We are excited to share our passion and offering to the local community of Canberra very soon,” he said.

Head of property at Capital Property Group Richard Snow said The Meat & Wine Co led the market in superior dining experiences.

“It is going to be a great flagship restaurant for the vibrant precinct we are building,” he said. “It is a truly unique dining experience here in Canberra which is a perfect fit as we continue to add Australia’s premium brands to this iconic development.”

Constitution Place includes two iconic commercial buildings, including a 130-room hotel .

Club Lime, part of the VIVA Leisure group, and one of the largest health and fitness providers in Australia, will be opening a state-of-the-art gym, offering Life Fitness cardio, strength equipment, free Wi-Fi, 24/7 access and modern facilities to accommodate professionals looking to get in a workout before, during or after work.

Montessori Academy’s upcoming Constitution Place childcare centre will deliver an exceptional early education to children aged 0-6 years. The long-day care centre will be home to four spacious classrooms and play spaces, and embraces the Montessori teaching philosophy to prepare children for success in school and life through hands-on learning experiences.

“These four outstanding businesses will provide the strong base of service and amenity that we aim to offer tenants, employees working in the CBD, theatregoers and the entire Canberra community,” Mr Snow said.

“They will help boost work-life balance and further our aim to reignite Canberra’s interest in this part of the city with great amenities, services and restaurants.”

Ultimately the precinct will have up to 10 retailers, and the company says advanced negotiations are underway with additional high-end food and beverage operators, with further announcements in the coming months.

I hope they pass on discounts for seniors because meat and wine are the two most expensive items on my grocery list these days.

    Simon Wheaton it’s amazing how things get changed after the tender or auction process. Then the government hands out betterment concessions too

Good news re Meat and Wine Co! Not sure we need another gym unless aiming for one gym/F45 facility per head of population though...
