Pitt Street Mall in February 2016

Pitt Street Mall is the pedestrianised section of Pitt Street in the Sydney central business district, Australia. Running for approximately 200 metres between Market Street and King Street, it is one block long and one of Australia's busiest and most cosmopolitan shopping precincts.[1] Floorspace rents are the highest in Australia, in part due to other cities' shopping precincts being longer.[1] In 2015, its rents were the fifth highest in the world in terms of city streets.[2][3]

Despite its small size, Pitt Street Mall hosts many flagship chain stores and more than 400 specialty stores.[4]

History[edit]

2010–2011: redevelopment[edit]

Along with these extensive upgrades to shopping centres, the mall itself recently saw a A$10 million refurbishment carried out. This included the provision of new seating as well as new pavers and a catenary lighting system (which will be installed in the coming months).[5]
