Sydney s changing role from national centre to global centre

Sydney’s Changing Role From National Centre to Global Centre

  • 3/4 of Australian banks have headquarters (HQ) in Sydney

  • 2/3 of multinational corporations have Asia-Pacific Regional HQs in Sydney

  • 60 multinational corporations set up Asia-Pacific regional HQs in Sydney in the late '90s

    • More than 4 times the total for any other Australian or New Zealand cities

  • Sydney captured the "Lion’s Share" as a result of a “world-city” growth process

Discussion where do gentrifiers live

Discussion: Where do gentrifiers live?

  • “Condo-boom” has attracted many “gentrifiers” in the world.

  • They are described as “financiers”, “IT-related workers”, “rising class”, “young professionals”, “dinks” and “high income workers,” etc.

  • What types of people become “new comers” to Sydney?

  • We focused on “FIRE” people as the representative of “gentrifiers”.

  • Preferred areas by "FIRE" are not limited to the narrow extent of the CBD

  • What's found in this study seems different from those of previous studies in London and New York

  • Those questions remain unanswered

    • Who is the new comer?

    • Where do labeled "gentrifiers" live in Sydney?

    • What's the difference between Sydney and other "world cities?"
