Harris Street

Harris Street

Pyrmont, Ultimo and Broadway

Creative industries, higher education and research are expected to continue to dominate employment in this village, which sits on the Pyrmont peninsula.

The area is home to media companies such as the ABC, Channel Ten and Fairfax, educational institutions such as the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS), the Sydney Institute TAFE College, and the Powerhouse Museum.

Tourism accounts for nearly 1 in 5 jobs in the village in particular driven by The Star, Sydney's major casino complex while the information and communication technologies sector has experienced the largest employment growth over a 5-year period.

Growth in visitor numbers and the planned refurbishment of the Sydney Fish Market should drive future retail, hospitality and tourism business opportunities in the area.

Once dominated by port facilities in Darling Harbour, the Harris Street village area now has a large number of high density residential developments, particularly around Jackson's Landing, at the northern end of the peninsula.
