Macquarie is located in a regional location that combines modern urban planning with a relatively central location. It is just 13km away from Sydney’s CBD and is home to many technologies and other large businesses on Sydney’s North Shore. It has undergone constant development over the past few years and has become a focal point for many commuters. New public facilities, great shopping malls, everything here gives a feeling of modern. Macquarie is well facilitated in healthcare, education, commercial and residential communities.
Macquarie Centre, the largest mall in the area, has more than 360 shops and a wide range of international and Australian brands in dining and entertainment, fresh food, fashion, and other categories. A wide variety of restaurants provide plenty of choices for people who live here. There is a convenient public transport that connects the mall with Sydney CBD, North Shore, and Northern Sydney, as well as other surrounding suburbs.
Macquarie’s business district houses the Australian headquarters of many Fortune 500 companies, including Microsoft, Philips, Canon, Sony, Johnson & Johnson, etc. In addition to more than 180 international companies, there are also more than 200 small and medium-sized enterprises. These high-tech companies, as well as a large number of elite white-collar workers, bring a high-end atmosphere to this Sydney’s second-largest business center. At the same time, students account for a large proportion of residents since the famous Macquarie University is also located here. While ensuring the flow of the nearby business circle, these crowd characteristics also indicate the possibility of employment in this area.
According to Transport NSW, Macquarie’s population is expected to grow by an average of 3% a year over the next few years, nearly double that of the entire Greater Sydney region. Therefore, in the future, the government will focus on expanding the space for public activities and improving public service facilities in the urban planning of the whole area, to make better use of spatial resources. Young residents can enjoy all those stylish buildings, graceful environment, efficient transport within easy reach, and experience more of the “real” Sydney.
