Lend Lease Involvement

Lend Lease was selected in December 2009 as the developer for Barangaroo South by the Barangaroo Delivery Authority on behalf of the New South Wales Government.


Barangaroo South is a vital new development of Sydney’s central business district and will provide extraordinary benefits for Sydney, NSW and Australia. It is a once in a 200 year opportunity to create a bold new place to live, work and visit. Itprovides room for the city to grow - creating new jobs, stimulating growth and boosting our economy. It also returns this previously private industrial space to the community, including a new naturalistic harbour park.

Barangaroo South - the southern 7.5 hectares of the 22-hectare former container port on the western rim of the city - will become the greenest global residential, shopping and business centre in the world.

Barangaroo South will have a mix of uses, with commercial and residential buildings as well as shopping, dining, hospitality and public places. It will be a dynamic and authentic part of Sydney.

Barangaroo South will enhance Sydney’s position as one of the world’s most spectacular harbour cities and a must-see destination.

Barangaroo South will:

  • Deliver a climate positive and low carbon outcome for the whole of Barangaroo, pioneering a new era in sustainability and setting new benchmarks for others to follow
  • Further develop Sydney’s role as Australia’s financial capital, increasing its competitiveness in the South East Asian region and progressing its reputation as a centre for innovation and research and development.
