The southern end is the economic engine of Barangaroo and is due for completion in 2019 with progressive openings since July 2015. Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners designed the three commercial buildings in the precinct known as International Towers Sydney, with development by Lendlease.
The final stage and due for completion in 2024, Central Barangaroo will be the cultural and civic focal point for recreation, events and entertainment. A consortium comprising Grocon, Aqualand and Scentre Group will deliver the final stage of the Barangaroo development - Central Barangaroo.
