Darling Harbour development

An atrocious day of weather in Sydney, but as a good a time as any at a look at a few of the latest ventures of Lend Lease Corp and Mirvac.

The new Sydney International Hotel tower is sprouting up in front of the Novotel, and the new ICC for conferences and conventions (hopefully it lasts longer than the two decades the last one survived!).

Mirvac will also redevelop the Harbourside Shopping Centre (an old "tourist trap" that residents of Pyrmont will delighted to see upgraded), with the developers hoping to be granted permission to construct a new commercial tower at the end of Pyrmont Bridge as a "thank you" (not so popular with the residents of Pyrmont, of course). 

The colossal International Towers commercial development down at Barangaroo.

These three International Towers dwarf anything of their like seen in Australia before.

And the view from the Novotel Darling Harbour...not quite as good as it used to be...

The three behemoth international towers to the left of shot. There will be a few more towers on the old Hungry Mile in due course, including the new casino. 

A dreadful day of rain in Sydney, but lots happening around these parts - and more besides including the Darling Harbour Live development at Tumbalong Park.
