Unlike anything Sydney has ever seen, ivy offers a dazzling constellation of bars, dining facilities, shops, lounge areas and lifestyle indulgences. It’s a night out, a meeting place, function venue, an escape from reality.

Located in the heart of Sydney’s tight urban fabric of George Street, the 20,000 m2 building offers a public landscaped oasis within a predominantly commercial domain.

The integrated precinct comprises:
- Nine boutique retail spaces, which utilises a central alley way
- Six bars, two of which offer extensive outdoor spaces
- Three specialist restaurants including a New York style grill
with a Peter Doyle designed menu
- A specialist venue dedicated to live music performances
- An ulitmate function room which can hold 1000 people on one
level. It also includes state of the art audio visual facilities and
internet technology
- A two level office facility exclusively for the Merivale Group
- Two 500 m2 penthouses
- A lifestyle complex comprising of a pool club and a day spa

Woods Bagot formed a collaboration with Merivale, Cornwell Design, Hecker Phelan and Guthrie for all components of the design. A highly integrated outcome of architectural interiors, signage and hospitality.
