The evolution and revitalisation of North Sydney

01/03/2022 |

Stroll through the streets of North Sydney today and you’ll likely encounter more than the usual number of scaffolding-clad worksites and builders in hard hats. The bustling suburb is on the cusp of a major reinvention.

After many years operating as Sydney’s second CBD, a hub for advertising, insurance, banking and computing businesses, the harbourside enclave is adding more feathers to its bow with the expansion of its residential base, alongside bigger and better commercial premises and a slew of hospitality and retail offerings.

A major driver behind new development is the introduction of the Metro line, scheduled to open in 2024, which will connect commuters to Barangaroo in three minutes, Martin Place in five minutes and Central Station in nine minutes.

Work is well underway on the Victoria Cross metro station, set in the heart of North Sydney with a northern entrance opening to McLaren Street.

Fifty metres away, on the corner of McLaren and Walker streets, developer Aqualand is on track to deliver the suburb’s finest apartments in the form of AURA by Aqualand, a collection of prestige one, two, three and four-bedroom residences.
