Night Time Economy Strategy Research gains traction in Sydney CBD study by Dr Jon Drane. The study used ARCGIS data to determine venues and their relationships in four precincts of Sydney Harbour.

The project was designed to study vibrant and non-vibrant night precincts and try to create a model of the dynamic factors involved ( or not).

The initial pilot was to in Sydney Australia and review key precints:

Argyle St, The Rocks: The iconic and historic Rocks holds many precincts including Argyle Street. Focusing on the Argyle Pub and the associated activities.

Angel Place: An exciting lane way enclave including The Sydney Recital Hall , food and beverage and night club providers, this precinct has a mix of event and night club culture.

El Alamein Fountain Kings Cross: The historical entertainment precinct is known world wide, the end of the main strip hosts an historic fountain, a park and a police station. A mix of excitement , dispossession and homelessness.

Cowper Wharf Rd, Woolloomooloo: Featuring the backdrop of this historical precinct along with Harry’s Café De Wheels and the Woolloomooloo Bay Hotel it features multi-million harbour apartments and a multi-layered society with its own difficulties.

Each precinct has it own diverse offerings and we deliberately chose those which have dead spots in them as well as areas that are effected by disadvantage. The concept was that we should not only idolise the higher end precincts like Angel Place and ignore the simple wonder of Harry’s cafe de Wheels type offerings.
