As South Eveleigh is reimagined for the future, our carefully considered plans for the adaptive re-use of the Locomotive Workshop will deliver a unique cultural and innovation hub for Sydney that will preserve and celebrate its rich history whilst making it accessible for everyone to enjoy.
Architecturally striking inside and out, the space features a suspended steel mezzanine floor which offers horizontal and vertical lines of sight. These complement the building's generous voids, further emphasising the character of this heritage structure. The revitalisation plans enable a collection of unique workplaces. Through modern design and technology in conjunction with the historical backdrop of South Eveleigh, the Locomotive Workshop will deliver a fully modernised, light filled workplace designed to inspire collaboration and creativity.
Axle provides around 42,500 square metres of office space over eight levels. It provides tenant car parking, four retail tenancies, a childcare centre and end-of-trip facilities.

Designed by architects FJMT, with interiors by Woods Bagot, the building accommodates around 4,000 people and its design principles include flexibility, wellbeing, sustainability and connectivity. Axle’s large central atrium and extensive floor plates provide areas to meet, connect, focus, recharge and reflect.
