The Woolstore is at the heart of the 1.5 hectare Younghusband site. Our plans are to rejuvenate that building first, bringing out the character from its materials; redbricks, iron, glass and wood. Respecting its legacy, while upgrading the services and environmental performance.
There are five levels in the woolstore that will accommodate work spaces, communal areas, food and drink spaces, retail, arts, fitness and wellness studios.
Upon completion, this will be a great place to work and gather. It is walking distance from train lines and buses, a bike ride from the CBD, and a 20 minute drive to the airport.
With the neighbouring sites, we intend to open up new public space, and produce new buildings with the highest possible environmental and social performance.
At each stage, we’re engaging the people who work in and around the site, the neighbours and Kensington community.
