The Quay Quarter Sydney provides a once-in-a-generation opportunity to redevelop both the Bridge and Alfred, and Young and Loftus Street blocks to create a major city-making and regeneration project, and act as a catalyst for the renewal of Circular Quay.

Uniquely experimental, Quay Quarter creates a 24-hour urban living room. "Discovery" programming is inserted at multiple levels, creating large and small public spaces within what is ordinarily a private building. This gives the local community a sense of belonging.

Market Image + Programming Text

The Precinct represents a great opportunity to renew and reposition a significant area, in an important inner-city location at Circular Quay, Sydney's traditional 'front door', and a key public space within Global Sydney.

Aerial w/ text

Programming suggested uses and relationships on the ground plane – across the Two city blocks and across both the private and public realm – the report explores internal public circulation systems (laneways, arcades and carriageways) and the issue of rooftop access for more public and active uses across the precinct.
