Buildings and facilities
Upgrades to buildings and facilities
The City of Sydney aims to be a leader in design excellence. This goal is a major part of much-needed improvements the City has planned for existing buildings.
While preserving the historic significance of these buildings, new sustainable features will be introduced, giving our green and design credentials a boost.
