Act as a natural hub for professional employment in the Eastern Suburbs, attracting talented people who wish to avoid longer commutes from the beachside, yet with easy access to the CBD.

Provide a model for regional innovation

Provide a clear model for other regional and suburban centres in Sydney, Australia and the world on how to build world-class innovation hubs as satellites to cities’ central startup and innovation spaces.

Attract major creative and tech employers

Bring to the region major employers of creative and technology talent such as advertising groups, digital publishers, technology and media companies whose staff commonly live in the Eastern Suburbs

Research collaboration

Build ties to UNSW, UTS and other universities to establish highly networked innovation spaces and centres for commercial research and spin-off businesses.

Link to Sydney innovation centres

Host an outpost for Sydney Startup Hub to make it easier for entrepreneurs who reside in the Eastern Suburbs to work close to home and attract talented teams.

Reduce transport load

Serve as a dynamic satellite city, taking pressure off public and private transport and inner city infrastructure.

Cool and vibrant hospitality

Attract sophisticated people to Bondi Junction, and in turn contemporary, funky cafes, bars and restaurants, giving a cool, dynamic vibe to the centre.
