The DA for the food hall is now on exhibition. It's comprised of the 'Central Food Market' and '2000 Acres'. https://online.cityofsydney.nsw.gov.au/ ... pl=1319289

Central Food Market consists of 4 separate tenancies; Convenience, Bakery, Grill and Fresh.
Convenience is just a bunch of self serve fridges and a counter; Bakery seems to just sell coffee and baked goods; Grill almost looks like a higher end Hungry Jacks based on the floor plans; and Fresh is a fruit, salad and juice outlet.

2000 Acres is a cafe and wine bar.

Western commuter concourse in planning for Central Station revamp

Matt O'Sullivan

Extending a major underground concourse for commuters towards the western end of Sydney's Central Station will form part of a longer term overhaul of Australia's busiest train station.

About 270,000 people enter or exit Central Station every weekday, and many more use it to switch between trains via its rabbit warren of underground links.

Transport authorities believe improving pedestrian flows at the station will become even more critical when Sydney's new light rail line opens in 2019.

The government unveiled plans in March for a so-called Central Walk, which will comprise a 19-metre wide pedestrian concourse beneath platforms 16 to 23 near the station's eastern end, and a new entrance from Chalmers Street.

That entrance – on the existing site of the Bounce Hostel – will be near a stop on the new light rail line from Circular Quay to the city's south east.

But the City of Sydney Council says construction of a western section to Central Walk is needed from platforms for a new metro train line because of greater demand from commuters wanting to access the station's western side.

Thousands of students walk between the station's western end and the University of Technology each weekday to catch trains.

In a report on Central Walk, Transport for NSW said the design of the new underground concourse would allow for an extension to the west of the metro platforms.

However, construction of a western concourse and exit could not begin until the new platforms for the metro line were completed because of the need to maintain regional and intercity rail services at the station.

"As such, these works [for a western concourse] are suited to being progressed as a separate project in the future. This would also allow additional time to identify the optimal solution for the west concourse and western entry," it said.

In September last year the government sought community feedback on plans to revamp Central Station. The overhaul will also form a key part of the Central to Eveleigh rail corridor.

The number of passengers switching services at Central Station is forecast to surge by 79 per cent between 2014 and 2026, and to rise by a further 15 per cent over the following decade, according to Transport for NSW.

Construction of Central Walk is due to begin in late 2018 and take three years to complete.

The YHA has asked that officials not allow demolition works, underground excavation and other construction of Central Walk between 9pm and 9am that might stop guests getting a "good night's sleep" at its two hostels near the station.

While most work will be carried out during daylight hours, Transport for NSW said "substantial construction activities" would need to occur at other times to minimise disruption to the city's transport network.

There are two coffee bars and a ciggy shop on the ramp from Elizabeth St down to N concourse. The leases on these facilities have been terminated and they will be demolished.
One shop is being relocated to Eddy Ave.

Is that entrance finally going to be updated and possibly even levelled out?

Looks great ! Looks like it is targeted at the kind of people who never use trains.
