One particular area of Sydney is soon to be pedestrianised, which could bring numerous benefits to retail businesses in the city.
Commercial retail property along a section of George Street is expected to be in high demand as efforts are made to enhance the shopping and dining experience in the area.
Lord mayor Clover Moore pointed out that Sydney needs to keep up pace with other major world cities such as Paris, London and New York.
Margy Osmond, chief executive officer of the Australian National Retailers Association, said that businesses will already be contemplating the opportunities the pedestrianised area will bring.
"Retailers will be looking to the state government to make a rapid decision on this issue so they can move forward with their plans for development, which the whole city will benefit from," she commented.
These plans have also been welcomed by Tourism Accommodation Australia, which said they could help boost visitor numbers to the city.
The group called George Street in its current state a "congested mess" that prevents people getting to their destinations in a hurry.
