Booming residential developments at Green Square have the inner city urban renewal area on track to grow to more than six times the size of Barangaroo.
October 16th, 2015
New data revealed by the City of Sydney shows that apartments, shops and workspaces built or planned for Green Square will cover 4.1 million square metres, or around six times the 680,000 square metre size of development currently built and proposed for Barangaroo.
Lord Mayor Clover Moore says the City was investing more than $540 million on new facilities for the Green Square community. “We are determined to do high density well, to make Green Square an exciting place for all members of the community,” he says.
“Urban development’s critical because Sydney can’t keep developing its food basin – doing high-density living well means convenient access to employment, improved infrastructure, quality open space, easy access to local shops, a rich cultural life and buildings guided by the principles of design excellence. It’s a process we’ve put into action at the City because we know places that are good for people to live are also good places to work and do business.”
“This new data on Green Square’s rapid evolution illustrates the community’s 278 hectares of former industrial land between the city and the airport form the area of Green Square that will eventually have 30,500 new dwellings, including 10,000 now under assessment or construction,” he says. “People know Barangaroo is big because they can see the size of the buildings taking shape there on the harbour, but there’s less understanding of Green Square. I’m sure people will be surprised to hear Green Square will have six times more floor space than Barangaroo.”
