Haymarket Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from the late 1700s. Growth was minimal until the 1800s and early 1900s, with land used mainly for rail yards, light industry and housing. Since the 1970s the area has undergone significant change, with factories, warehouses and worker’s houses recycled or replaced with office towers, hotels and public buildings. Rapid growth took place during the 1990s, particularly between 1996 and 2001. The population declined slightly between 2001 and 2006, and then increased rapidly again between 2006 and 2011 as large numbers of new dwellings were added to the area.
Major features of the area include Chinatown, Market City Shopping Centre, Sussex Centre Shopping Arcade, East Ocean Shopping Arcade, Paddy’s Markets, University of Technology Sydney (City Campus Haymarket), Actors College of Theatre and Television, Belmore Park, the Central Station railway station and various government buildings.
