Sydenham To Stay Creative As Plans For New Precinct Approved
Victor P Taffa
Jo Haylen, Member for Summer Hill, welcomed news that the Inner West Council has moved to support the transformation of the Sydenham Station Precinct into a creative hub.
“The inner west is known for being vibrant, eclectic and creative. As Premier Mike Baird continues making Sydney ‘nice’, the inner west is providing important room for creative industries to be loud, messy and innovative.” Member for Summer Hill Jo Haylen said.
Ms. Haylen had developed initial plans for the Hub in her time as Mayor of Marrickville.
“The Sydenham Station Creative Hub will mean live music venues, small bars and creative industries can spring up alongside the existing industrial businesses, right next to Sydenham Station.” Ms. Haylen said.
This area is directly beneath the flight path, making it the perfect area for noisy and new industries and unsuitable for further residential development.
The hub will allow the area around Sydenham Station to be transformed into a vibrant precinct full of small bars, live music venues, breweries and restaurants.
“This proposal will attract new and exciting businesses and that renewal will also help the more established industries next door.” Proprietor of Batch Brewing Company Andrew Fineran said.
