06 August 2019
The awards recognised the urban design for the entire 20-hectare public precinct, designed by HASSELL, and the venue’s integration, designed by HASSELL + Populous, into the thriving city hub.
General Manager and Project Company Representative of the Darling Harbour Live Project, Peter Robertson said ICC Sydney and the $3.4 billion redevelopment of Darling Harbour had been embraced by the community and visitors of the city.
“Darling Harbour has become one of Sydney’s most vibrant and lively precincts in all of Sydney. From delegates attending events at ICC Sydney to families enjoying fun in the sun, this redevelopment is drawing new and old visitors to the picturesque waterside location,” Robertson said.
“Sitting at the epicentre of Darling Harbour, ICC Sydney acts as a connection point between events, delegates and the local community. These connections enable collaboration, knowledge exchange and cultural experiences that showcase the very best of Sydney on a global stage.
“The vibrancy and innovative surroundings of the revitalised precinct provide our guests with experiences unlike any other destination in the world, further strengthening Sydney’s reputation as a leading events destination,” Donaghy said.
A NSW Government project, ICC Sydney was delivered in partnership with Darling Harbour Live, comprising Lendlease, Hostplus, First State Super, Capella Capital, AEG Ogden and Spotless FM.
