Strategies to redevelop the former Inwards Parcel Sheds at 8-10 Lee Street in Haymarket were this week authorized by the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment. The choice kick-starts the NSW Governments aspirations to transform the Railway Square pocket of the CBD into Tech Central, a center of development and house to a range of companies forming future generations of technology and societal interaction.
” The revamp of Central Station and delivery of Tech Central will create an industrial core in the Citys south that would include a public domain with new open area, shops and coffee shops all on top of the rail corridor,” Minister Ayres said.
” The new YHA at Railway Square will be created for both worldwide and Australian visitors– and will change perceptions of affordable accommodation with its ultra-modern style and fit-out,” McGrath said.
Sustainability will be at the heart of the brand-new development, with wood to be used as a main building product. Early makings reveal an area naturally floodlit with a variety of areas designed to match young travellers including private and communal dining and spaces for hanging out and satisfying fellow visitors. Accommodations will consist of both private and dormitory-style rooms catering to people, couples and taking a trip groups.
YHA Australia CEO, Paul McGrath, stated the new Atlassian tower will change what the YHA offering represents for both worldwide and domestic visitors.
Hostel operator YHA Australia has launched initial makings inside its substantially broadened brand-new Train Square location once it is redeveloped as part of the global headquarters of home-grown IT giant, Atlassian.
NSW Minister for Jobs and Investment, Stuart Ayres, said planning controls were now in place to see the redeveloped location become Sydneys answer to Silicon Valley.
The brand-new hostel will include a range of co-living and common areas.

Lodgings will include both dormitory-style and private rooms catering to people, couples and travelling groups.
Lower levels of the 39-storey tower will see the enduring and popular YHA Railway Square modernised and broadened to cater to as much as 500 tourists at full capacity.
” Whether solo travellers, digital wanderers, or groups of families and buddies checking out Sydneys events and destinations, the YHA will be their ideal base, in a buzzing hub.”
Building and construction of the brand-new tower will start in 2022, with a four-year completion plan.
The enhanced YHA Railway Square will be open in 2026.
