What’s happening to the Australian Technology Park?

NSW Government has announced it has sold one of Sydney’s largest event spaces to property group Mirvac. The Australian Technology Park in Eveleigh is home to major events and conferences every year, like the popular Finders Keepers Markets and the Great Australian Beer Spectapular.

The government has been looking to sell the ATP Conference Centre for some time, and after reaching a deal in late 2015, the closing date has now been set for June 30, 2017. According to the ATP website, “Mirvac will develop new office space across ATP, and up to 75,000sqm of floor space capacity will be reserved at ATP for technology uses into the future.”

Until then, it’ll be business as usual for upcoming events like the Cruelty Free Festival in October, Steve Wozniak’s talk, the Be a Blacksmith’s Workshops and One Fine Day Wedding Fair.

It’s not clear whether or not the heritage building will be demolished or whether the new office space will retain the historical features. We'll keep our fingers crossed for the latter.

Proceeds from the sale will be invested in the upgrade to Redfern Station and the development of Sydney Metro Station at Waterloo.
