Those smaller towers look amazing! What they don't have in height they certainly give in terms of urban planning and the streetscape. Are the opal towers being built in the middle of nowhere or is there any reliable mass transit in the area?

They're being built near the Olympic Park Station (10min weekday frequency) that was used for the 2000 Olympics. There is many more apartments planned too. Here's an aerial picture of the area.

No, but they are going to build over the top of it.

The western edge of the CBD is being radically transformed. Lots of cranes on this side of town.

Here are some photos that I took recently of the redevelopment of the Sydney Exhibition and Convention Centre at Darling Harbour, where rapid progress has been made with construction and its due for completion by the end of next year.

Australia's Nine Network recently did a feature on highrise projects in central Sydney for its Sydney News Bulletin. The report screened on March 4 2015.



I will mention that the reporter (Eddy Myer) refers to the AMP Building in one frame as Goldfields House. This is incorrect.

2 month old news clip but figured it'll still be worth posting. Claims there are a total of more than $60 billion worth of apartment developments in the pipeline across Sydney at the moment which if they're all built would house an extra 200K people.

There has been an announcement on the creation of a new authority which has the potential to greatly affect development in Sydney for the future, depending on how it'll be implemented and the powers given. At the moment, much of the planning work within metro Sydney is handled by 43 individual local councils. The state government has in the 2015-16 budget allocated $19 million to establish a new authority later this year to be known as the 'Greater Sydney Commission' in an effort to streamline planning and boost housing construction across the city. It should in theory function similarly to Greater London Authority in London. Judging from this, in all honesty perhaps (slightly) opinionated article, the state planning minister seems to be taking particular aim at Sydney City council which currently has a very strict set of building height limits and various other planning regulations in place in/around Sydney CBD.

Quote:
No Moore Nimbys: Baird’s new planning commission to weed out self-interested councillors

PREMIER Mike Baird’s new Greater Sydney Commission will focus on overriding the self-interested NIMBY decisions being made by Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore and other councils when it is established later this year.

Planning minister Rob Stokes said the government would assign $19 million in tomorrow’s Budget for setting up the commission. It will be part of a greater $1 billion planning budget over four years, which also includes $77 million for infrastructure for new homes to be built in the Hills District and Blacktown.

Asked about his views on the controversial Lord Mayor, Mr Stokes said: “I think the Greater London Authority is a good example of one way of dealing with that issue.

“Where there is a City of London and there is a ceremonial lord mayor of the City of London, it is the Greater London Authority that is responsible for metropolitan governance.

“That’s the model that we are looking at in Greater Sydney and that works quite effectively in London.

“Like every council, the City of Sydney needs to recognise that it’s part of a greater metro region that is not an island of itself; that there are plenty of people who work in Sydney every day who have just as much interest in the shape of the CBD and the core as the residents who are there."

Under the plan, six districts — each representing a number of councils — would get one representative on the commission, which would be independent, although based in the planning department.

Its mission would be to unify planning and housing projects to avoid problems such as houses being built where the North West Rail was supposed to go — which has led to the project’s costs rising steeply because of a need for tunnelling.

“Sydney is a city that grows but doesn’t think,” Mr Stokes said. “For too long we’ve seen literally billions of dollars in extra infrastructure costs or lost productivity because there haven’t been matched-up decisions in terms of planning and housing.

“What the Greater Sydney Commission needs to do is direct that process.

“Whether you live in Balmain or Bexley ... your future depends on the development of Sydney as a whole, and that is what the Greater Sydney Commission will do. It will be the controlling brain of Sydney.”

Mr Stokes promised legislation to have the commission up and running this year

“It will have real planning powers. Its function is operationalising or enacting the plan to grow Sydney,” he said.

“This is actually holding councils to account to deliver these things. At the moment particular councils will say ‘we don’t want housing in our area because we’re special’. (But) it won’t be good enough to make up excuses as to why things don’t happen.”

But a spokesman for Ms Moore said the commission would have no impact if it were run as part of the planning department.

“The Greater Sydney Commission is not worth doing if it is just another part of the department of planning. If it were to be set up, it should be within (the department of) premier and cabinet,” he said.
