Over the next half decade Darling Harbour is undergoing a massive multi-billion dollar redevelopment.
Darling Harbour will become home to Australia’s largest convention and exhibition facilities, "Sydney’s largest red carpet entertainment venue", and a hotel complex.
Opening in late 2016, there will be new world-class convention, exhibition and entertainment facilities.
Suburbs such as Pyrmont stand to benefit greatly, as will tourism in the area, Darling Harbour already attracting some 25 million visitors per annum.
Here is the Sydney Convention Centre last week.
And just a week on - nowhere to be seen.
The demolition stage is expected to take 12 weeks. A new International Convention Centre is to be built on this site as part of the Darling Harbour regeneration.
