3/4 of Australian banks have headquarters (HQ) in Sydney 2/3 of multinational corporations have Asia- Pacific Regional HQs in Sydney 60 multinational corporations set up Asia-Pacific regional HQs in Sydney in the late '90s More than 4 times the total for any other Australian or New Zealand cities Sydney captured the "Lions Share" as a result of a world-city growth process
Objectives To consider the urban structural change in Sydney especially focusing on both: building provision process in the CBD building use in the CBD Data GIS attribute data provided by the Sydney City Office General statistics of Australian Bureau of Statistics Customised census data of ABS "Table Builder" Various reports of Sydney City Office available on line
Data for "FIRE" is created by summing numbers in the census TSP categories "Financial & Insurance services and "Rental, hiring & Real Estate services." Source: ABS
Older age buildings concentrate in the area close to Circular Quay Expansion in the '70s and '80s along Pitt and George streets Newer buildings are dominant around Darling Harbour Precinct Source: Sydney City Office
Affordable office spaces are limited Sydney's CBD is located in a narrow strip Newly emerging industries (e.g. IT and media) dispersed into neighbouring areas Multi-nuclei metropolitan structure emerged Office spaces are more likely to be dedicated for "FIRE" Source: Sydney City Office
"Condo-boom" is common in the Darling Harbour Precinct Many high-rise self- contained condominiums adjacent to the CBD Offering young professional people "city living" Source: Sydney City Office
Restaurants and cafés are limited in areas They are dominant only in commercial precincts Circular Quay Pitt street mall China town Darling Harbour The rate is not high in newer buildings These buildings were designed for promoting mixed-use rather than single purpose use Source: Sydney City Office
Condo-boom has attracted many gentrifiers in the world. They are described as financiers, IT-related workers, rising class, young professionals, dinks and high income workers, etc. What types of people become new comers to Sydney? We focused on FIRE people as the representative of gentrifiers.
High shares are obvious within 5 km radius from the CBD Source: Sydney City Office
Preferred areas by "FIRE" are not limited to the narrow extent of the CBD What's found in this study seems different from those of previous studies in London and New York Those questions remain unanswered Who is the new comer? Where do labeled "gentrifiers" live in Sydney? What's the difference between Sydney and other "world cities?"
