Over the last few years, we have witnessed the transformation of Sydney's western CBD with the realisation of the Barangaroo project - delivering a new commercial address for global financial services, world class hospitality offerings, redefined city living, and a new harbour park - all supported by extensive government investment in infrastructure and public transport.
This world class urban renewal project, and its climate positive outcomes, was delivered through partnership between the NSW Government and Lendlease. It's been a long journey, but the results are significant. Barangaroo can be a benchmark for future projects - nationally and globally - and inform how partnerships between the public and private sector can best deliver positive outcomes, public benefit, and commercial returns.
We will bring together key contributors to the project - the developer, government, and occupiers - to share their insights of the project's delivery, balancing the success and challenges of both collective and specific project objectives, and arrive at lessons to inform similar future projects.
