Alquemie and The LEGO® Group unveils the World’s Biggest LEGO store in Sydney

On Thursday 09 November, Alquemie and The LEGO® Group unveiled the World’s Biggest LEGO store in Sydney.

Situated over two floors, the 900sqm landmark new store is situated in prime position at Sydney Arcade, overlooking Pitt Street Mall, to provide a world-class new experience for brick enthusiasts.

LEGO stores are renowned across the globe with landmark locations in New York, London, Hong Kong, Dubai and Denmark and a footprint in more than 50 countries.

The new landmark store includes exclusive large-format brick-built features that draw inspiration from local architecture, with the design based on ‘Stories of Australia’ bringing a combination of Sydney and Australian culture to life in LEGO brick form and the first LEGO Minifigure Factory in Australia.

Richard Facioni, Executive Chairman, Alquemie Group, said the new store would capitalise on the enduring appeal of the LEGO brand and bring a world-class retail concept to Australia.

“We’re incredibly excited to unveil our flagship store and the world’s largest LEGO store, in partnership with the LEGO Group ANZ, right in the heart of Sydney.
