Create your new cafe in Dulwich Hill



Don’t miss out on this rare high quality cafe opportunity! No planning risk for the tenant given an already obtained DA and liquor licence. Spacious indoor/outdoor cafe space partially fitted out with essential inclusions such as air conditioning, all toilet amenities, kitchen exhaust and grease trap – ready to add your own style. Take advantage of this highly valuable and affordable alternative to buying an existing cafe by creating your own exactly the way you want within an engaging community and then fully capitalise on the business value uplift as it matures. Adjacent to parks, playing fields, Dulwich Hill soccer stadium and less than 20 minutes drive to the Sydney CBD. Located on the Arlington light rail station with good pedestrian traffic, the site is well suited to an “all day trader” perhaps comprising a bakery or convenience offering for commuters as well as the high density surrounding local catchment.

64 Constitution Road, Dulwich Hill, NSW, 2203

• Long term lease available
• DA approved – up to 160 patrons

• Liquor license included
• Long trading hours
• Safe family and dog friendly position
• Adjacent to light rail
• Major components of fit out already installed
• Generous cash contribution to complete fit out available

Physical Attributes

· Large potential “all day trader” tenancy offering scale for increased profitability
· Over 400 square metres of tenancy area including over 150 square metres of oversize, valuable, well designed, family/pet friendly, “wrap around” outdoor area
· Approximately 126 square metres ground floor internal
· Approximately 128 square metres lower ground level internal
· Approximately 158 square metres exclusive use outdoor dining area
· One security basement car space


· 160 patron approval (DA No. 201700483)
· 6am to 11pm trading Friday and Saturday
· 6am to 9:30pm trading Monday to Thursday
· 7am to 9:30pm trading on Sunday
· Liquor license included (LIQO660034469)
· Approval for outdoor awning has been obtained so as to ensure full patron capacity no matter what weather conditions
· Should the tenant wish, there is an opportunity to extend trading hours once tenant has been in occupation for 12 months


· Despite the large size and 160 patron capacity, the tenant will benefit from being able to fit out the site inexpensively due to some of the most expensive items already being installed as well as the fact that floors are complete and walls are complete or consist of glass folding or hinged doors opening out to the large outdoor area
· The site requires only kitchen appliances and service counter to be installed along with tables and chairs and minor cosmetic decorations so that the tenant can put their own stamp on the space and make it their own
· Spacious fully tiled separate male, female and disabled toilets already installed
· Air-conditioning already installed (Daikin Model No. FDYQN71LAV1)
· High capacity 1,000 Litre grease trap already installed
· High capacity kitchen exhaust riser already installed (300mm x 1,000mm)
· Kitchen exhaust fan providing 3,000 litre per second extraction already installed (Model No. AX80DB14A-4EAF)
· Concrete look, large format, European tile floors already installed (high quality 1200mm x 600mm tiles)
· High ceilings and efficient floor plate complimenting “wrap around” outdoor area allowing for flexibility in design and excellent natural light
· Drainage provided underneath the floor slab (awaiting only tenant core drilling in their desired locations for easy connection)
· Location provisions for any plant associated with coolrooms in lower ground level adjacent to tenancy for cheap install
· All services available for connection with minimum 3 phase 80AMP power supply
· Dedicated secure bin store incorporated into tenancy
· Signage provisions included


· Positioned in the middle of a new development precinct containing approximately 300 units (set to grow to 400 units) with no other retail or cafe competition incorporated into this master planned precinct
· Excellent high density surrounding local demographic within this substantial catchment that has very limited competition noting no other venues with similar large family friendly and pet friendly outdoor area in a safe setting away from traffic next to parks, playing fields and light rail station
· Adjacent to the “Arlington” light rail station with services every 5 to 15 minutes in both directions 6am to midnight every day, linking Dulwich Hill to the Sydney CBD in only 20-25 minutes
· Adjacent to parks, playground equipment and playing fields that are well frequented throughout the week
· Adjacent to and with direct line of sight to Dulwich Hill Soccer stadium with well attended semi-professional games and training throughout the week
· Only 300 metres to the New Canterbury Road residential unit development and Dulwich Hill main road shopping precinct, however with all the benefits of a desirable cafe/restaurant setting with large outdoor area away from the noisy main road and close to parks and playing fields
· Good levels of pedestrian traffic throughout the day given the front outdoor area for this site is the “pinch point” for the locality, forcing everyone to walk past the cafe who are moving between either side of the light rail that dissects the suburb of Dulwich Hill as well as anyone walking between the above landmarks for the locality or leaving/entering the subject development precinct itself.
· The outdoor area extends out to a safe cul-de-sac style “drop off point” for the light rail with the stairs for the train station actually linking the cafe to the platform for the station and the parks and playing fields on the other side
· Excellent “line of sight” given the highly exposed corner position and large signage provisions


· Engage with receptive Inner West local community and businesses as part of any marketing efforts
· Offer a small “convenience” retail component to capitalise on the daily needs of the immediately surrounding densely populated catchment who have no other such options in close proximity
· With an extended kitchen perhaps in the oversize lower ground level, the site has an increased capacity to provide additional food offerings in the centre of a massive Ubereats customer base with this central location allowing it to offer the quickest delivery option for customers using the app (or similar apps) ensuring strong sales
· Engage with local gyms and “bootcamp” style operators who utilise the adjoining park and it’s outdoor gym equipment for healthy food cross promotion within the community
· Engage with nearby childcare centres and mother’s groups who utilise the adjoining parks and children’s playground
· Engage with the administrator of the Dulwich Hill community Facebook page which currently has almost 5,000 members demonstrating the strong community spirit. The “I Love Dulwich Hill” Facebook page has almost 2,500 followers. This presents an opportunity to inexpensively fast-track a local online following during fitout, opening weeks and beyond
· Capitalise on the fact that the site is only 2 stops on the light rail or 3 minutes from the large Summer Hill/Lewisham West development precinct with over 1,000 units and no comparable family friendly parklands, playground equipment, soccer stadium or comparable cafe/restaurant to this site
· Explore sponsorship opportunities with soccer teams that play at the Dulwich Hill soccer stadium. Dulwich Hill Football Club has almost 2,000 Facebook followers
· Market the space for functions given the open plan design, outdoor area, unusually high patron capacity for the area and lack of competition in this regard. The space is well suited to a variety of mid-week and weekend function options
· Capitalise on the Greenway project which will link the locality to Cooks River and the well known “Bay Run” and Sydney CBD, including a dedicated bike path adjacent to this site
· The Sydney To Bankstown Urban Renewal Corridor Strategy will provide for further increases in development and population density in close proximity of the site that will serve to increase the size of the patron catchment for this site and the light rail, parks and playing fields it adjoins.
