East Sydney’s ageing Heffron Hall and adjoining Albert Sloss Reserve have been refurbished to complement the local area and help strengthen East Sydney as a creative hub. The refurbishment of the 1966 building focused on a making it more accessible and open to natural light, with the inclusion of new multipurpose community spaces that enable more activities for more people.

The neighbouring Albert Sloss Reserve has been renewed, with better access from Palmer Street a more generous grass area, sensory planted terraces, new paths, seating and energy-efficient lighting. The playground has been upgraded to have better access for all, new play themes and equipment including a slippery dip, rope-climbing tunnel, basket swing, a fairy garden and nature-inspired play elements.
