The battle for cultural supremacy between Melbourne and Sydney is set to reach boiling point — the Harbour City finally has a laneway.
The idea of narrow streets crammed with Al fresco cafes, one-off shops and cosy little bars has long been enjoyed exclusively by Melbournians, but on Kensington St, Chippendale an abandoned corner of central Sydney has been utterly transformed.
Sure, some will argue Sydney already has The Rocks, but this is the first taste of a Melbourne-style laneway in Sydney.
The developer — Greencliff — has taken a laneway packed with 1840s terraces hidden within the old Carlton United Brewery and given it a facelift featuring “bold, new structures, spaces and artworks.”
