Central Barangaroo is the newest cultural waterfront destination in Sydney. Located along Darling Harbour with views to Jones and Johnstons Bay, it will be the premier location to study, live, play and work. The promenade and building frontages will be awash with activity from day to night. City workers will sit and hold impromptu meetings along the foreshore, while students casually soak up the sun in between lectures. Tourists will sip on coffees as they meander through the weekend market stalls and watch roaming street performers entertain the crowds. At completion, Central Barangaroo will be the cultural heart of Sydney that people will flock to.
Anderson Hunter Horne (AHH) in collaboration with Skidmore Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM) were the visionary team for Central Barangaroo’s master plan. The vision: to create a new cultural hub for Sydney that would be the melting pot of creative minds, working artists, students, city workers and residents who want to reside in Sydney’s hottest destination.
The master plan establishes the importance of high quality routes to the waterfront and forming viable connections back to Circular Quay and onwards to the Botanic Gardens. By developing these connections, it will invite people to populate the area and further explore opportunities along the waterfront. Due for completion in 2019, Central Barangaroo is set to transform from a forgotten parcel of industry into Sydney’s biggest urban renewal projects of the 21st century.
