Jobs & economic development
Jobs & economic development Central to Eveleigh is already a sought after place to work. The creative and innovative sectors have called the area home for some time, particularly in Chippendale, Surry Hills and Redfern. Future development will create varied and flexible work spaces for innovative industries, a cluster of new innovative and creative jobs that benefit from links with education and medical facilities, easy connections to the CBD and dynamic new workplaces in adaptively re-used heritage spaces.
The entire area will need to be so much more than an employment district – mixing in cultural enterprises, varied residential accommodation, entertainment and other creative industries is critical to attracting the creative minds that drive these industries.
Part of our vision for this area is to promote Redfern as a potential business innovation centre for digital,technology and creative industries as part of a large cluster from Ultimo through Chippendale to Eveleigh.
