About Us

The Hayson Group has established a reputation over 40 years for identifying new areas of opportunity and creating properties of quality and innovation.

Ian Hayson has been Managing Director since establishment of the group and continues to direct and manage the company’s activities today.

M Central, Pyrmont
Over the years the company has set many industry precedents. It developed Australia’s first super high-rise serviced apartment complex, the Golden Gate in Surfers Paradise. In Sydney it acquired large areas of underdeveloped inner city property. Through its extensive developments in the inner city it became one of the first companies in Australia to develop the process of residential and commercial strata conversion on a large scale. The conversion of many centrally located, disused warehouses for residential use resulted in Australia’s first true loft apartment complex.

In addition, The Hayson Group developed and redeveloped office and retail projects, including Skygarden in Sydney’s Pitt St Mall, the Manly Wharf retail development, the Kogarah Town Shopping Centre, Cremorne’s Metropole shopping centre and Hillsdale’s Southpoint shopping centre.

Perhaps most significantly, Hayson was the first private developer to recognise the potential of Darling Harbour. The group also built and operated the Harbourside shopping centre. The group’s development of Darling Harbour has been a catalyst for the transformation of the inner city of Sydney.

The Hayson Group has developed some of Sydney’s prestigious luxury apartment buildings, which have set a new standard in innovation, quality and design integrity. Lumina in East Sydney and Top of the Town in Darlinghurst and M Central at Pyrmont are some recent examples.

Through skilled marketing the company ensures that its innovative product achieves mass attention and recognition. Whether strikingly progressive or projecting elegance and luxury, the marketing campaign for each development has consistently succeeded in reaching the target market effectively.
