What you need to know…
Mid CBD is the smallest of Sydney’s precincts, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in wow factor! The area spans Park Street to King Street, not crossing over York Street to the West or Elizabeth Street to the East. A fantastic location for public transport, the Mid CBD precinct is halfway between Town Hall Station and Wynyard, with George Street running through it. This part of the city is a breeze to get in and out of, with buses running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to every destination outside of the Central Business District.
Home to the main retail hub of the City Centre, it includes the stunning Queen Victoria Building (QVB) and Strand Arcade, Pitt Street Mall and Westfield Sydney. Brace yourself for shopping delights!
Sydney CBD rental rates are the highest in Australia and yields for commercial properties in the mid-CBD are strong, with low vacancy rates. This is not expected to change in the near future, with the next major supply of commercial stock not due until 2020. Many of these new developments already have strong pre-commitment levels from buyers. Robust job growth continues to drive the white-collar employment market in Sydney, which is another favourable trend for CBD commercial property and the mid-CBD precinct.
