Packer’s Barangaroo Development Approved

The NSW Planning Assessment Commission has granted final approval for James Packer’s $2 billion casino and hotel complex at Barangaroo in Sydney, leading the way for the government to give its green light for building to begin.

The approval was granted with some minor modifications, particularly additional public space at Hickson Park. The casino will be set back 30m from the harbour to provide additional space for people to walk along the promenade by the western side of the casino.

Serious concerns about the project were raised by the public, local councils and design professionals, leading to these modifications which have now been accepted by the state government.

The three-panel group found that taking into account the design changes, the “proposed scale and form of Crown Sydney will be a sculptural and elegant signature building on the foreshore.”

“These changes combine to provide for a significant increase in the area of public domain – of some 4,500 square metres compared to the original proposals.”

In addition, the commission’s statement read that the changes meant “the public good has been given a more equal status with the private good.”

Mr Packer and the government have been negotiating over the proposal for the last seven years and Crown Resorts won government support for the development in Barangaroo in 2013. The commission made it clear in its statement, that if it had the scope to do so, it would have recommended more substantial changes.

“While it has been a long and detailed process, we are pleased with the overall outcome,” said Robert Rankin, chairman of Crown Resorts.

“We’re deeply committed to building a six-star hotel resort that Sydneysiders and all Australians can be proud of.”

“We will now move quickly with excavation work.”
