Farewell August... it's been a whirlwind!
The month began with the long-anticipated announcement of Greenhouse, a new hub for climate tech ensuring Sydney is a global leader in the sector. This is an immense project, with support from the City of Sydney, Lendlease and countless partners who have helped us bring it into reality over the past two years. Read the full announcement here.
