Spanning across three levels, the prestigious store will feature top beauty and skincare brands providing exclusive shopping for some of the finest luxury products; a prestige watches boutique; a fine and rare liquor and wine shopping experience; and a number of VIP services including concierge and limousine transfers to Sydney’s top hotels and dining.

Lotte Duty Free will occupy approximately 3,000m2 in 55 Market Street. Construction is now underway with an anticipated opening in early 2021.

Mirvac Fund Manager, David Stabback said the announcement of Lotte Duty Free, with its high-end offer was the perfect alignment to the high-quality commercial offering that will be coming to market this year with the redevelopment well underway.
