Open spaces

Industrial land and concrete barriers once cut off the city from the western harbour. Today, with 2ha of public open space, Barangaroo South liberates the harbourside for community use. 

Watermans Cove

is an amphitheatre-style boardwalk accessible to everyone, stepping down to the water from a crescent-shaped cantilevered waterfront walkway. 

Wulugul Walk

is a tree-lined harbourfront path running north-south, all part of the 11km connection from Woolloomooloo to the Anzac Bridge. 

Hickson Park

is a cooler, shaded park with an open green lawn and sheltering belt of predominantly native trees. 

Architectural excellence

Barangaroo South forms a new Sydney skyline, with internationally recognised examples of innovative architecture 

International Towers

on the harbour foreshore is a progressive workspace, home to some of Australia’s largest companies.

Crown Sydney

is the city’s first 6-star hotel resort with 14 restaurants and eateries, bars, apartments and a free observation deck where everyone can enjoy an unimpeded view of Sydney.

Barangaroo House

is a new dining destination for Sydney with timber facades and both ornamental and edible greenery. It was designed by Collins and Turner following a design excellence competition. 

Alexander and Anadara residential buildings

feature nearly 160 apartments and ground-floor retail spaces, with natural colours and textures that respond to the waterfront setting. 

One Sydney Harbour 

will pay homage to Sydney Harbour’s constant kaleidoscopic motion of colour and sparkle’. Its design embodies esteemed architect Renzo Piano’s love of crystal and reflections in his architectural work.

Embedding sustainability

The commitment to sustainable design is embedded within the infrastructure and buildings that people see today. From the expansive solar power station spread across the rooftops of various buildings, to vertical cooling panels or the centralised District Cooling Plant, the entire development builds-in resilience.  

This ethos began during construction, with waste reduced by 97%, and carries through to operation, with innovations such as rainwater tanks, the use of recycled water and a plethora of safe and convenient green travel options. 

In a world-first, food waste generated from International Towers is converted to compost through a shipping container ‘farm’ with layers of fly larvae. 

Art and culture

Both temporary and permanent art installations and cultural events recognise Barangaroo’s history and its contemporary reputation as a space for people, energy and commerce.  

As well as temporary activations and events, Barangaroo features permanent art works that encompass the area’s history, using modern techniques. 

For example, at the southern gateway to the Wulugul Walk, the seven-storey Shell Wall on the southern façade of the Alexander residential building is a permanent celebration of the area’s shell middens, many of which were burnt to provide lime for the mortar that still holds together sandstone buildings across the city. At International Towers, Sabine Hornig’s Shadows layers the artist’s images of indigenous Sydney flora on high curtains of multi-coloured glass walls in the walkways and passages between the towers.

New Pier Pavilion

The Pier Pavilion on the edge of Watermans Cove will be a place where people can meet, gather and relax by the water, or enjoy a range of programmed events.

Barangaroo Reserve

Barangaroo Reserve recreates a headland that existed before European arrival in Sydney – a place used by First Nations people for thousands of years. This re-imagining required a process of restoration, creation and construction.
