Tower Crane Installation

Lendlease is installing a tower crane to support the construction of the third residential tower, next to Hickson Road. Due to wet weather delays, preparation work is ongoing. The tower crane is expected to be installed on Friday 29 July and Saturday 30 July.

All works will take place during standard construction hours of 7am to 7pm Monday to Friday and 7am to 5pm on Saturdays.

As part of these works, a mobile crane will be established in the workzone next to Hickson Road to lift the crane sections into place and progressively install the crane structure. Due to Transport for NSW requirements for wide load deliveries, the mobile crane is expected to arrive to site on Friday 29 July between 5.00am and 5.30am. All other deliveries will take place during standard construction hours.

Modification 9 to Barangaroo Concept Plan is now on public exhibition

Central Barangaroo will become the cultural and civic heart of Barangaroo, linking the natural beauty of Barangaroo Reserve with the commercial district of Barangaroo South.

On the western half of the Central Barangaroo precinct, Harbour Park will be designed as a centrally located, 1.85 hectare foreshore public open space for a range of recreation, events and entertainment activities. On the eastern half of the precinct, adjacent to Hickson Road and connected to Barangaroo Metro Station, a mixed-use development zone will facilitate a range of future commercial, retail, residential and community buildings and uses.

As the Central Barangaroo developer, Aqualand has designed a concept plan proposal which requires a modification to the approved Barangaroo Concept Plan. Known as Modification 9, the application seeks approval for the development blocks, uses and building heights in Central Barangaroo.

Infrastructure NSW lodged Modification 9 with the Department of Planning and Environment. This was placed on public exhibition on Tuesday 12 July for the community to review and make submissions.

Modification 9 is on public exhibition until Monday 8 August 2022.

Walsh Bay Arts Precinct 

WALSH BAY ARTS PRECINCT WINS NSW ARCHITECTURE MEDALLION
 

Australia’s newest cultural precinct on Sydney Harbour foreshore was awarded the top honour at the 2022 NSW Architecture Awards alongside the award for Public Architecture, Greenway award for Heritage and a commendation for Interior Architecture.

Walsh Bay Arts Precinct’s resident companies comprise Bangarra Dance Theatre, Gondwana Choirs, Sydney Dance Company, Sydney Philharmonia Choirs, Sydney Theatre Company and The Song Company, all located at Wharf 4/5 and at Pier 2/3, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Australian Theatre for Young People and Bell Shakespeare.  A premier arts and culture hub, the Precinct presents a vibrant program of musical concerts, dance and theatre performances and public events throughout 2022.

Walsh Bay Arts Precinct is located on the Sydney Harbour foreshore and is now a premier arts and culture hub, home to nineof the nation’s foremost performing arts companies. Former cargo wharves built between 1913 and 1920, Wharf 4/5 and Pier 2/3 are an integral part of Sydney’s history and now feature a heritage-sensitive design by Tonkin Zulaikha Greer Architects, undertaken by Richard Crookes Constructions. As the northern most operational pier at Walsh Bay, Pier 2/3 was a key ‘open berth’ location for passenger cargo ships and following the Second World War, the wharf functioned as a migrant arrival point for new families starting their lives in New South Wales. 
 
In July 2021, the renovation of Sydney Theatre Company’s premises at The Wharf by Australian Architecture Studio Hassellwas recognised with the prestigious Sir John Sulman Medal for Public Architecture at the 2021 Australian Institute of Architects NSW awards. This was especially meaningful for the Company as the Sulman Medal was also won by the original architect, Viv Fraser with the office of the NSW Government, for the original repurposing of the abandoned finger wharf into a theatre-making space in 1985.
 
Walsh Bay Arts Precinct was unveiled earlier this year following the completion of major redevelopment works on the historically significant Pier 2/3 and Wharf 4/5 undertaken by Tonkin Zulaikha Greer Architects. The Precinct recently won in the Adaptive Reuse category at the National Trust Heritage Awards 2022. 
 
On the announcement of the awards, Peter Tonkin, Director of Tonkin Zulaikha Greer Architects said: “It has been a genuine privilege working on the robust and beautiful twentieth-century buildings at Walsh Bay, a visionary industrial project originally created for the benefit of the public, and to see it now grown into a different and even more focal public role. It’s also been a privilege working with so many inspiring people in all aspects of the project.”
 
Selected by a jury led by former NSW Government Architect Peter Mould, the Precinct received the state’s top award, the NSW Architecture Medallion, for the transformation of Pier 2/3 and Wharf 4/5 undertaken by Tonkin Zulaikha Greer Architects. The Precinct also received the awards for Public Architecture, Greenway Award for Heritage and a commendation for Interior Architecture.

Join us at Pier 2/3 from 25 July to 15 August for our new talk series; 
          An Unauthorised History of Classic Music.


ABC Classic presenters Genevieve Lang and Russell Torrance will take you on a tour through the remarkable, inspiring and often shocking history of classical music. Across four nights they’ll survey 1000 years of music, introducing you to the key ideas, uncovering some neglected figures, and answering those burning questions: when did it all start? What really is the big deal with Bach? 
Whether you’re a lifelong classical music lover or looking for a way in, expect to be informed, entertained and surprised.
