SYDNEY CENTRAL STATION REVAMP
The heritage-listed Sydney Terminal Building at Central Station will receive a $350 million facelift, restoring one of Sydney’s signature sandstone buildings to its former glory.
The works will breathe new life into the Grand Concourse, the Booking Hall, Eddy Plaza, Western Forecourt, and Central Electric Building.
Alongside the station revamp, the Government is also revitalising Eddy Avenue by supporting 15 new pop-up retailers ahead of major renovations of the public plaza, which accessed 70,000 visitors every week.
Minister for Cities Rob Stokes said the initiatives would bring Sydney’s history back to life and activate spaces that are currently sitting vacant.
“We have a vision to turn Central into Sydney’s centrepiece and the first stage of that is pressing ahead with the renewal of one of Sydney’s historic landmark buildings,” Mr Stokes said.
“We’re going back to the future with the magnificent Grand Concourse by reinstating long forgotten views of the heritage clocktower through new glass panels, just as they were when Central Station first opened.
