SYDNEY | Central to Eveleigh

Early planning has commenced on Sydney's next big urban renewal project - Central to Eveleigh. Central to Eveleigh is comprised of 100 hectares of rail corridor airspace, leading into downtown Sydney. The site is expected to reap more than 1.2 million square metres of floor space (that's more than double what is currently permitted at Barangaroo).

Here is a video of Central to Eveleigh (and a few other major projects across the state) from which the following screenshots were collected. If developed in this way, Sydney's skyline (south of the harbour) would extend for more than 5km. Note that the screenshots do not include the current crop of downtown urban renewal projects (Barangaroo, Central Park, Darling Harbour) that will help the skyline expand west.

The screenshots also do not allude to the developing skyline on the north side of the harbour - North Sydney, St Leonards and Chatswood are slowly expanding with 12 x 100m+ towers U/C, approved or proposed at the moment.

Here's a few screen caps.

edit: 1 more screenshot with the cbd in view to give a sense of what it'll look against the skyline

That's quite a "river" of development.
