A 21st century transformation

Barangaroo’s development is focused on people and place, with all planning, design and development decisions driven by sustainability, public spaces, art and culture, design excellence and partnerships.  

Sustainability

Barangaroo is sustainable today and for the future. It is carbon neutral and water positive, with zero waste emissions, and a place that contributes to community wellbeing. Barangaroo is Australia’s first urban precinct to be certified as carbon neutral. 

Learn how Barangaroo sets the benchmark for sustainability in urban renewal.

Public spaces

The transformation of a former industrial site into a multi-use precinct that can be handed back to the community is driven by the enduring commitment that, when complete, at least 50% of Barangaroo will be public open space, accessible at no cost and free of physical barriers.  

Uncover more about how Barangaroo is meeting this commitment.

Art and culture

Public art, events and cultural activations at Barangaroo celebrate innovative works, historical significance and First Nations culture. The commissioning and management of public art and cultural programming includes permanent features such as the Shell Wall and the multimedia experience of Barangaroo Ngangamay.  

Learn about the Barangaroo Public Art and Cultural Plan.

Design excellence

Established and emerging architects, landscape specialists, world-class construction companies and prestigious design competitions drive a philosophy of design excellence. Barangaroo features a diverse skyline, protected water views and unique and sustainable design from building basements, podiums, towers and rooftops 

Learn more about the approach that brings design excellence to Barangaroo.

Partnerships

Barangaroo is only possible through partnerships with development partners. Each stage of Barangaroo’s development relies on a consistent and concerted effort from NSW Government partners: Lendlease, Crown Resorts, Aqualand and Sydney Metro. A shared vision has created a Barangaroo that will be enjoyed for generations.
