The Star Sydney Masterplan
New Six Star Hotel
rooftop dining experiences
In July 2022, the NSW Government delivered an update to the Pyrmont Peninsula Place Strategy (first released in December 2020) to map out future growth in the local area and how it relates to the local community, local businesses, tourism and entertainment.
The plan includes provisions for construction of a 105 metre, luxury six-star hotel, two new theatres – including an 1550-seat Broadway style venue and new rooftop dining at The Star Sydney’s site.
While the Place Strategy looks to the future and harnesses the Peninsula’s capacity to deliver innovation, new investments and jobs, it is also focussed on maintaining areas that underpin Pyrmont’s rich history and heritage – characteristics that make it an attractive place for domestic and international visitors and a cherished slice of Sydney for the locals who call it home.
In addition to The Star, the strategy identified three other key sites where development will drive new and additional jobs including:
- Blackwattle Bay
- Harbourside Shopping Centre
- UTS in Ultimo
Further, the NSW Government announced that it will build a new metro railway station at Pyrmont as part of the Sydney Metro West project, which will further support its plans to revitalise the Pyrmont Peninsula and encourage jobs, investment, and economic growth.
