The Goods Line, Good for Sydney

Release Date: 17/09/2015
The Sydney Business Chamber believes the opening of The Goods Line in Ultimo is another key step to transforming Sydney into a modern liveable and walkable city that will attract global talent to Sydney’s creative industry precinct.
The Executive Director of the Sydney Business Chamber, Patricia Forsythe said, “Being identified as a liveable city is an ingredient in the creation of dynamic business hubs and this is at the heart of the new green connection between the creative industry precinct of Pyrmont Ultimo and its link to the Darling South precinct and Barangaroo.
“Old industrial inner city areas were once lost as places of open space. What the establishment of The Goods Line has done is create a small but important green space in an area that was for many years a disused rail line.
“Innovative cities like New York and San Francisco attract young business professionals who are focused on working in knowledge hubs where walking is a key feature of the locality.
“Similar to these thriving global cities, Sydney is attracting hubs of entrepreneurs and the encouragement of walkable precincts provides an attractor for Sydney.
“A recent US study by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Business Performance in Walkable Shopping Areas revealed that among the top 20 cities where small businesses saw the most growth, more than half featured significant pedestrian infrastructure.
“The Goods Line, combined with the Barangaroo Reserve will give locals and visitors new places to explore within the heart of the CBD.
“The Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority deserves congratulations for its vision in creating the new space.
“The Goods Line is another element in the biggest transformation of Sydney with the new CBDSE light rail network and the creation of the George Street pedestrian boulevard commencing construction next month,” said Mrs Forsythe.
