“The White Bay Power Station will be transformed into a global centre for hi-tech jobs and innovation. It will be a place where global giants of technology and innovation cluster and connect with start-up entrepreneurs, business incubators and accelerators,” Baird said in outlining his vision last year.

You can say that again. I was reading the plans of the developer and one of the first things he said was he is looking to transform not only the power station but the surroundings also.

I am sure the people in the area will benefit also. This move will bring alot of jobs to the area so seems to be a win for everyone.

Google's presence (and no doubt enormous neon shingle) will ensure the emergence of a tech hub around them. Yes, White Bay will soon be the land of beards and mopeds and virgins in their late twenties.

Google leases space in two buildings at Pyrmont, being 48 Pirrama Road, and 1 Darling Island Road, which is also the headquarters of Fairfax Media, the publisher of the Sydney Morning Herald, but which it is quickly outgrowing.Its potential move to White Bay was first revealed in BusinessDay in January 2015.

Anywhere Google goes they bring jobs and opportunity. This city will become one of the most technological advanced cities in less than 5 years. Hover cars driving around everywhere.

That is true but you must think about where they are leaving from. Unless travel is super easy to the new place they are going to lose their jobs. I guess this is just the way it has to be. For every opportunity gained someone has to take a loss.

The massive heritage-listed White Bay power station beside Sydney Harbour, 2km from the CBD, is likely to become Google’s new Australian headquarters as part of a $20 billion redevelopment of waterfront land. Google’s current Australian headquarters are at nearby Darling Island. Google maintains a sales force in Sydney as well as an engineering division, which was most famously responsible for the creation of Google Maps.
