Sydney development to revitalise harbour

The Barangaroo precinct is set to revitalise Sydney's East Darling Harbour.

A development in Sydney is set to revitalise East Darling Harbour, containing a mixture of residential and leisure facilities.

Plans to build Barangaroo, a new precinct in Sydney's central business district, were announced by the state government in 2003 and approved in 2007.

Since then, the plan has been amended on a yearly basis to increase floor space and amenities. Included in these was a Crown Casino, which was approved recently.

In total there will be 800 apartments built in the precinct including 159 waterfront units. They will contain between one and three bedrooms.

The first apartments in the precinct are due to be completed in 2015. By this time there will also be two commercial towers and 50 shops, including cafes and bars.

Barangaroo is also tipped to be the first large carbon neutral community in Australia, with every building aiming for a 5 Green Star rating and measures to ensure it is sustainable.
