Some are calling it the future of Sydney. At the very least, Barangaroo will be a spectacular waterfront precinct and a showcase for Sydney’s economic growth and development. Barangaroo is Sydney’s largest redevelopment project this century, valued at over $6 billion. Estimates show annual revenue of some $1.5 billion flowing into the NSW economy.
Members of the Sydney Financial Forum were addressed by Geoff Wilson (CEO, KPMG) and Steve McCann (CEO and MD, Lend Lease) as they shared their insights into the development and future of Barangaroo. Geoff and Steve will also discuss issues particularly relevant for superannuation and financial services executives including:
• How will Barangaroo influence the development of the financial services industry in Sydney and Australia?
• What lessons have been learnt from the development of similar precincts, for example London’s Canary Wharf?
• Does the Barangaroo development experience provide insight into the development of future private-public partnerships in NSW?
• An update on the major investors and prospective Barangaroo lease holders.
