Cartier announces new Oceania flagship boutique at 388 George Street

Opening in Spring 2022, the new Cartier Oceania flagship is set to become a space of luxury reimagined

French luxury Maison, Cartier, has announced a new Oceania flagship boutique in the heart of Sydney’s CBD. The flagship will be located at the 388 George Street Pavilion Building, on the corner of King Street and George Street, occupying approximately 783m2 on the Ground Floor and Level 1.

388 George Street sits on one of Sydney’s busiest intersections on what is fast becoming the George Street Boulevard. Opening in Spring 2022, the new Cartier Oceania flagship is set to become a space of luxury reimagined. 

The contemporary landmark, with a modern architectural façade features a custom-designed curved sandstone and translucent exterior. The Maison’s arrival at this location continues the momentum of the newly pedestrianised George Street becoming a major luxury precinct in the Sydney CBD.

“After enjoying a longstanding presence in Australia for more than 45 years, the announcement of our new Oceania flagship marks a thrilling new chapter in the relationship between Cartier and Australians. The new Oceania flagship will merge Parisian elegance whilst paying tribute to Australia’s rich culture and natural beauty, featuring the savoir faire and style Cartier is renowned for around the world. We look forward to welcoming our clients and offering them a unique experience full of discovery,” said Alban du Mesnil, Managing Director of Cartier Oceania. 

To celebrate the impending opening, Cartier has engaged Melbourne 3D artist Paul Milinski to animate the façade with an expression of his singular creativity. Milinski will create a unique art installation, The Australian Dreamscapes, that will evolve quarterly until the boutique opens, enlivening the streets of Sydney with a journey through Australian landscapes.

Danny Poljak, Executive Vice President & Co-Head of Brookfield Properties, said: “388 George Street continues to set new benchmarks for the Sydney CBD and we are delighted it will now provide an anchor point for the city’s new luxury retail precinct. Cartier is one of the world’s most prestigious luxury brands and realises our vision for the retail space of this development.” 

Nicole Quagliata, Fund Manager, OIPP, said: “Cartier is a fantastic addition for 388 George Street, and we are thrilled to welcome this iconic, luxury brand to their new flagship store. The addition of Cartier to 388 George Street continues to elevate the ground plane and pavilion, bringing outstanding tenant amenity, and solidifies the building as a premium retail destination for the Sydney CBD. 

The ground plane and pavilion building was designed by architects FJMT and provides five levels of commercial and retail space, a rooftop bar and flagship retail stores including Bally and Locali. It was designed to complement the rich history of the site, incorporating a custom-designed curved sandstone and glass façade inspired by the topography of the surrounding CBD landscape. 

The property is owned and was developed by Brookfield Properties and Oxford Investa Property Partners (OIPP) as part of a $200 million transformation of the site that completed in November last year.
