Barangaroo is the future of Sydney. It is being
created as a landmark for our economic future and to give people
maximum access to the harbour.
It will become a spectacular waterfront
precinct and a place that everyone in NSW and Australia can be
proud of. Valued at over $6 billion AUD, Barangaroo is Sydney's
largest redevelopment project this century and will evolve over the
next 10 to 20 years, injecting more than $1.5 billion AUD into the
NSW economy annually.
Barangaroo is located on the western edge of
Sydney's CBD, on the shores of our world famous harbour. It
is currently 22 hectares of disused container wharves.
When complete, Barangaroo will showcase how
city populations can live sustainably. It will create a new,
21st century western face to our city. It will
include six hectares of a new headland park, busy public waterfront
walks and parks, commercial office towers and apartments, all
serviced by new and extended transport systems.
Its design must be bold to make the most of
this rare opportunity for renewal, rarely available to global city
CBD's around the world.
The site has been divided into three
redevelopment areas - the Headland Park, Barangaroo Central and
The Headland Park will feature:
- Restored naturalistic headland features which will balance with
the other natural headlands it faces around the harbour
- A place for the public to relax by the harbour and in natural
surroundings just minutes from the CBD
- A public foreshore walk which will continue the length of the
site and on to Walsh Bay and Darling Harbour
Barangaroo South will be the commercial centre
of the site. It will feature:
- Commercial buildings with the large floor plates demanded in
the 21st century by the international financial services
- Residential apartments that will ensure the site is
vibrant and active seven days a week
Barangaroo Central is the heart of the site. As
a home for creativity and innovation, Barangaroo Central will also
be a cultural and civic focal point for recreation, events and
entertainment. Ideas and plans for this area are being
gathered, considered and debated to ensure that our vision for a
bold new place is realised.
"Barangaroo will be a place to
inspire innovation for generations to come. It will be
climate positive. It will reflect the extraordinary context of
Sydney - its harbour, its diverse communities and its globally
competitive business leadership. It will be a place designed for
play and work alongside living and learning."
