New restaurant comes to Haberfield
A new addition is set to be made to Haberfield’s foodie strip next week when Argentinian restaurant Estilo Buenos Aires opens up on Ramsay Street where Colefax chocolate shop once stood. We look forward to welcoming a new cuisine to the suburb that has long been dominated by Italians.
A new library for Dulwich Hill
Earlier this month Marrickville Council entered a Voluntary Planning Agreement and voted to approve a development, that will see a new library facility built at 362-372 New Canterbury Road, Dulwich Hill, valued at $2.5 million in public benefit. According to Acting Mayor Councillor Emanuel Tsardoulias the library will be bigger than the current facility, with a completely new fit-out as well as parking spaces. “The new Dulwich Hill Library will be large enough to become the kind of community hub that we aspire to for all our urban centres,” he said. “I am hugely excited about this development. It will enhance Dulwich Hill village, and be a community asset for years to come.”
