It's great to see action on site after three years of planning. I'll have to start including regular trips to this section of town to capture the whole project.

Lets hope that the first proposals for the towers start rolling in and that they are TALL!!!

Pilgrims to fill Hungry Mile

old news, but i don't think anyone has mentioned this yet, i hadn't read about it before -

Pilgrims to fill Hungry Mile
August 18, 2007
http://www.smh.com.au/news/national/...857771532.html

A STRETCH of Sydney's waterfront once called the Hungry Mile in recognition of the struggle of waterside workers in the Great Depression is to become holy ground for thousands of Catholic pilgrims.

The 22-hectare container wharf site along East Darling Harbour will be used for the Mass that will open World Youth Day, the largest religious gathering in Australian history, next July.

It is understood that the Catholic Church is close to signing an access agreement securing the site which will not only accommodate up to 150,000 Catholic pilgrims at the Mass but provide a dramatic and telegenic backdrop for the arrival, by launch, of the Pope two days later.

The first Mass is to be presided over by the Archbishop of Sydney, Cardinal George Pell, on Tuesday, July 15 and the church is now also considering using the East Darling Harbour site as one of 14 city locations for the re-enactment of the stations of the cross pilgrims walk.

Negotiations between the church, Sydney Ports Corporation, the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority and the State Government have been shrouded in secrecy to avoid a repeat of the drama over use of the Royal Randwick Racecourse for the Pope's final vigil Mass.

At the 11th hour the Australian Jockey Club refused to sign an agreement for the use of the racecourse after horse trainers threatened to sue for about $50 million in compensation.

The NSW Government is due to receive early next week the findings of an independent review detailing potential impacts of World Youth Day on the operations of the racecourse.

The Pope, leader of the world's 1 billion Catholics, will lead a mission to rejuvenate the faith in Australia when he visits for World Youth Day.

The State Government says the six-day festival will be the largest gathering held in Australia, drawing almost as many international visitors as the Olympic Games in 2000.

The centre of activities for the six-day celebration will be Barangaroo, earmarked for parkland and a commercial centre as Sydney's newest urban area.

The site is thought ideal to showcase Sydney as a tourist destination to the international media covering the Pope's first visit to Australia.

The Government is said to be making the harbourside venue, a reclaimed concrete apron sandwiched between Walsh Bay and King Street Wharf, available to the church at little or no cost but the church is expected to pick up the cost of erecting barricades, stage and altar and all other crowd facilities.

Sydney Olympic Park was originally proposed as the site of the open Mass of the church's international jamboree for young believers but was ruled out because it was not considered big enough to hold the crowds. Sight lines to the altar would have been obscured.

Barangaroo is owned by Sydney Ports Corporation and leased to the stevedore Patrick, which will vacate it before the end of the year. Once the company has left, work will begin on demolishing the sheds and other infrastructure on the site.

Construction is expected to begin in 2009 and be completed by 2020. The Catholic Church declined to comment.

One thing I don't get: why is it called World Youth Day, rather than World Catholic Youth Day? It isn't a day about youth - it is about catholicism.

(sorry to deviate from topic! )

For whom? The Catholics or the residents of the near-by apartment buildings?? I'm just asking, okay?

I, for one, cannot wait for the overall development to start. More property investment opportunities and relief from the record Rental Vacency Rate driving up rents.

It will be spectular for those that are there. A mass by the harbour and Pope Benedict will arrive via boat. Very Sydney

Does anyone know what the facades of the Barangaroo Towers will be? Hopefully glass?

^not sure. each of the 18 skyscrapers will go thru a design process with state gov.
I was told that the tallest one will have "landmark qualities" and be a noticable addition to the city skyline. lets hope it nudges past 200m.
my dream design for that site is something with a stepped shape and spire, aka ESB.
Incicentally the model of the masterplan will be added soon to our city model. this will really show everyone the impact it will have. Also the CUB site will be in soon as well.

Things are looking up - literally. Can't wait to see the model, and eventually, the reality; I won't mind if they get a move on - I can handle it.

Hope the new scrapers at barangaroo cast shadows over the west side of the city, throwing SCC's shadowing/height limit blah blah into disarray. Hope it forces them to abandon height limits in that part of town.

hopefully it will allow for several existing blocks to be much higher, ie, kent to york streets north of king and south of the rocks / millers point area! a pity it's a little too late for westpac's kens site but maybe one day buildings like the fat glass Asteron (ex EY) will be knocked down and rebuilt much taller with some real design.

NOOO!!
Do not fucking dare demolish the Asteron! If anything I want 10 more floors added, but knocking it down?? No way. If you want to demolish something then demolish all the concrete shit that Sydney is currently drowning in.

i had a feeling that would get the glass fans hearts started. it was just an example of how a stubby block could be replaced with something tall and grand if the step down height limits become redundant with the bangaroo talls.
