Northern city centre, Barangaroo, Millers Point, Walsh Bay, The Rocks
Once dominated by the now-closed port facilities, the Barangaroo development promises new business opportunities in this area through increased residential and commercial activity in the northwestern part of the village.
Other business opportunities could be found in The Rocks, which offers a diverse residential and business community, where public housing tenants live among ad agencies, tourism operators, historic pubs and modern art galleries.
The Rocks Market takes place on weekends. This area is also home to the theatres on Walsh Bay, with a selection of cafes, restaurants and upmarket housing nearby.
The rest of this area is the heart of the City of Sydney’s central business district where you will find headquarters of many national and multinational companies. The biggest employer here is the finance and financial services sector, accounting for about a quarter of jobs in the village.
Other big employers include professional and business services and retail.
The area includes significant institutions and precincts, such as the Opera House, Circular Quay, Darling Harbour, the Rocks and Walsh Bay, the Domain and Hyde Park, the Art Gallery of New South Wales and Government House. Little surprise then that there are more than 10,000 hotel and serviced-apartment rooms in this village.
Areas of high commercial density include Darling Park, the Citibank building on Park Street and Martin Place.
