Redevelopment of Darling Harbour
Darling Harbour is undergoing the most exciting transformation of its history. The ICC Sydney—Australia’s largest entertainment, events and conference facility—is now complete; the revitalised Tumbalong Park is open to the public; and the first stage of the new Tumbalong Boulevard allows pedestrian access from Cockle Bay through to Hay Street. While the construction of Tumbalong Boulevard continues right through to The Goods Line, two further large-scale developments are now taking shape.
The Ribbon Project
‘The Ribbon’ is a 25-storey hotel and serviced apartment development that will provide a modern setting for the IMAX Theatre, plus retail and entertainment spaces. Improvements planned for the surrounding public spaces include an extension to the current children’s playground, a casual seating area, and a large outdoor screen for viewing big events at Darling Harbour.
This project is due for completion in 2020.
Darling Square, a new residential and creative precinct in the heart of Sydney, will soon be one of Sydney’s most walkable and connected city neighbourhoods.
The development includes:
- Three stages of residential apartments and commercial office space.
- One of the largest public squares with a wide pedestrian corridor to connect Central Station to Darling Harbour’s waterfront in the vicinity of Sydney’s CBD.
- A community and lifestyle hub with more than 60 new retail stores.
The first residential building is due to open in early 2017.
