Hyde Park Precinct

Over the past five years the Hyde Park precinct has undergone a meteoric rise in popularity and can now rightfully take its place as one of Sydney’s most sought after addresses.

There are two keys drivers that propel the property market around Hyde Park:

  • First and foremost the views are stunning; the vast majority of apartments that surround Hyde Park have leafy Hyde Park views. Dependant on orientation and location views encompass St Mary’s Cathedral, Opera House and Sydney Harbour as far as the Heads. Consequently this makes an intoxicating combination, large green open spaces with incredibly convenient access to the city with good transport infrastructure.
  • The second is its proximity to China Town, this is especially important as a growing affluent Chinese buyer group wish to move out of China Town but want all the convenience of easy access to it.

Named after it London namesake, Hyde Park is the oldest public parkland in Australia with the Archibald Fountain as its centre piece designed by Francois-Leon Sicard and famed for its wide fig tree lined avenues. The forty acre park stretches from Liverpool Street at the southern end and bordered by Elizabeth Street and College Street with more parkland north including the Domain and Royal Botanical Gardens.

Developers have been very slow to recognise Hyde Park as a highly desirable place to live which is surprising if you compare this to other parks in major cities around the world such as Hyde Park in London and Central Park in New York. Although it is fair to note that both these cities have a population considerably higher than Sydney and are more established world financial centres.

Therefore it will be very interesting to watch the development of Hyde Park. Developers have seen the potential and are now well aware of desire for more apartments which means one thing; more construction of residential apartments around Hyde Park in the coming years.

Since 2010 Hyde Park has added the following developments including The Hyde, The Residences and in 2014 The Eliza to its offering with 130 Elizabeth Street in the planning stages being the next development in line for its Hyde Park entrance.
