Circular Quay is Sydney Harbour's most iconic precinct and an important gateway to Sydney and NSW for both residents and visitors alike. It extends from the Sydney Opera House around to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It has multi-faceted roles as a business precinct, tourist destination, major public transport interchange and gathering place for community activities and events. It also has a significant cultural identity in the nation's history. A coordinated approach to the renewal of the Circular Quay precinct is necessary due to disparate land ownership made up of a mix of local, state government and private landowners.
Circular Quay is undergoing major change with significant public projects planned over the next decade. These include the CBD South-East light rail project, upgrades to the Overseas Passenger Terminal (OPT) and ferry wharves, and redesign of bus network infrastructure, as well as improvements to transport access, walkways and the public domain. In the same period, the private sector is investing more than $1 billion in property redevelopment projects nearby.
