Taken from water level, you can't tell from this photograph just how expansive is that spread of vacant former dockland. The owners and occupants of all those buildings that currently form the western edge of downtown Sydney must loath the development plans.
The site from a further distance out. The Pacific Sun is docked beside a makeshift terminal.
Observatory Hill and older structures in The Rocks that presumably will be overshadowed by the development.
