STUNNING SPACES ON THE WAY FOR BARANGAROO 

 

Plans for a new 1.85 hectare harbourside park and a stunning new design for the Cutaway have been unveiled as part of the next stage in the NSW Government’s transformation of Barangaroo.  

Minister for Cities Rob Stokes said the park would complement the future mixed-use precinct of Central Barangaroo, and create a new public space on the edge of Sydney’s harbour.  

 

What was a vacant container terminal is now a thriving residential, commercial and entertainment hub, soon to be linked to a world-class Metro line,” Mr Perrottet said.  

 

“The world’s best cities aren’t just liveable and workable, they’re also beautiful. The new harbour park and revamped Cutaway will be the type of public spaces that locals are proud of and visitors are drawn to. 

 

“To ensure this park is a unique reflection of our city, we’ve appointed a design jury chaired by Paul Keating to help us deliver Sydney’s next great public space.” 

 

Mr Stokes said the new harbour park and revamped Cutaway would build on the more than eight hectares of public open space and exciting programs of art and events at Barangaroo. 

 

“The new park will be linked to Barangaroo Reserve and make one of the world’s great harbour walks even more attractive,” Mr Stokes said. 

 

“Although design and construction will take time some time, we plan on using the space dedicated to the park for temporary activations and pop-ups later this year.

 

“New designs for the Cutaway will elevate the venue to become one of Sydney’s premier cultural and event facilities, spanning three levels and creating a space for events, education, art and entertainment.”

 

Paul Keating said the new harbour park and the updated Cutaway are opportunities to not only maintain but to enhance the value of the already thriving Barangaroo precinct.

 

“In our modern world of city landscapes of redeveloped and ever changing private spaces, the key component that remains at the heart of the city’s function and beauty is the importance of our public spaces,” Mr Keating said.

 

FJMT Studio have been appointed as the architects for the design of the Cutaway.
