The New Precinct of George Place
After an extensive redevelopment, the brand new, combined lobby space of 363 and 345 George Street and 24 York Street opened in October 2018. This custom designed space brings together the three buildings of George Place, with shared, communal spaces and exceptional services and facilities.
Sydney Light Rail
The NSW Government continues to build the light rail to travel from Circular Quay down George Street, with two branches ending in Kensington and Randwick.
This major project will return 40% of George Street back to pedestrians, with modern trams running every 2 minutes during peak hour.
The video shows how these plans will revitalise the George Street precinct.
George Street History
Since the early days of the Sydney colony, George Street was the original high street and continues to be one of the busiest streets in the centre of Sydney.
An electric tramway ran along George Street for 60 years before being replaced by buses in 1959 and this slice of George Street history is revealed in the video.
