Brougham Street External Works Upgrade
Land and Housing Corporation NSW – Department of Planning, Industry and Environment
In the second half of the twentieth century much of Woolloomooloo became social housing. Before then, back in the early nineteenth century it had many large houses, most with spectacular gardens as well as market gardens on the harbour shore.
Community profile: An inner city high density, diverse multi-cultural community from young professionals, families and elders.
To incorporate a community garden as part of the upgrade, to honour the history of Woolloomooloo’s past as verdant garden cove and market — offering respite from the city bustle and noise, and a meeting place for locals and visitors to enjoy.
