Proposal revealed for apartment tower, Japanese dining precinct at site of Mosman Park’s Tsunami restaurant
The owner of Mosman Park’s Tsunami restaurant has revealed a proposal to replace the western suburbs haunt with a Japanese-style laneway dining precinct with smaller eateries at the base of an eight-storey apartment tower.
As many as nine individual hospitality venues, each incorporating a cuisine type that was originally on offer at the Tsunami restaurant, would make-up the ground floor offering of the latest plan to reshape Glyde Street.
“Hence, from Tsunami would be spawned a teppanyaki bar, a sushi bar, an izakaya restaurant, a ramen (noodle) shop, a yakitori (robata) diner and an omakase room, each with their own enclosed space — as opposed to a communally shared food hall,” a report written for Tsunami’s owner said.
It said the landowner’s vision was that each eatery would be operated by “long standing Tsunami employees and alumni, and other best-in-class operators within the hospitality industry”.
The Town of Mosman Park is seeking public feedback on the development, which includes 12 serviced short-stay apartments and eight “high quality residential apartments” at the corner of Glyde and Ecclesborne streets.
It comes in a time of high change for the Stirling Highway end of Glyde Street, with a nine-storey 54-apartment building with ground floor shops already under construction and a $20 million 11-storey apartment block with two restaurants and a shop to be built next to the proposed Tsunami development.
The planning report prepared by Element on behalf of landowner Blessed in the City Pty Ltd said they had owned the Tsunami restaurant for more than 24 years, making it Perth’s longest running Japanese restaurant.
“The proposed redevelopment will be landowner-led, with a key aspect of the project being the next evolution of the existing Tsunami restaurant offering,” the report said.
The restaurant would be demolished and replaced by a ground floor indoor and alfresco dining precinct inspired by a “Japanese yokocho”, which translates to “alleyways off to the side of a main street”.
“The yokocho concept refers to a form of alleyway based dining that has evolved over the years to become symbolic of great Japanese cities such as Tokyo and Osaka and is defined by the idea of a series of small eating areas each staffed by individual operators and family,” the report said.
“The cuisine will not be restricted solely to Japanese, so as to encourage diversity for the community, with a vision for a coffee shop fronting Glyde Street and a Michelin one-star equivalent pasta ristorante.
The development plans are open for public comment until February 20 and will be decided by the State Development Assessment Panel.
