Jacksons Landing is a good example
of 25 storey residential towers
being sited to create an urban
precinct on the end of the Pyrmont
Along with the tall towers there are lower
residential buildings and a number of
commercial buildings as well as retail.
The precinct has become popular with
retiring baby boomers as can be seen from
interviews on their website.
The advantage of the towers is to maximise
the spectacular views across the harbour to
the city as well as freeing up considerable
amounts of space at ground level for
gardens. There are significant amenities
including a foreshore promenade, a number
of restaurants, coffee shops, some large
parklands, shops and medical facilities.
The precinct is located close to the
city cultural facilities and to the CBD
employment area for those wanting to catch
the light rail to work.
