Barangaroo is a new 22 hectare waterfront precinct in Sydney’s CBD that will use Australian leadership and innovation to set global benchmarks in sustainability and urban design.
Key open space features will include:
- creation of a significant harbourside park;
- restoration of an entire harbour headland to its pre-European settlement shape
- completion of the 14-kilometre Foreshore Walk from Woolloomooloo to Anzac Bridge.
Over the past 12 months, the Concept Plan has been modified to include the creation of a more natural headland and larger northern cove. The aim is to complement some of the key natural features of the harbour immediately west of the Harbour Bridge.
