The developers in Sydney are making millions by selling air. In the past year, thousands of square meters of air space is sold. Last week the developers finished the project of $1 billion in Martin Place which involved a pricey patch of sky.
Private developers, like Lendlease, have bought more than 12,000 square meters of air space for $1500 per square meter.
The city is hoping to sell 38,000 square meters of air or a heritage space, like Qantas House, a heritage building on Hunter St.
Earlier, in 2017, the government of NSW got $50 million for the air space above the entrance of the Wynyard walk.
The empty skies above the properties have become more valuable as they offer developers to increase the size of the buildings in CBD.
By buying the air rights, the developer can take the space and then transfer it to another building.
