Kings Cross is an inner-city area in Sydney located approximately 2 kilometres east of the central business district, in the local government area of the City of Sydney. It is bounded by the suburbs of Potts Point, Elizabeth Bay, Rushcutters Bay and Darlinghurst.
Colloquially known as The Cross, the area was once known for its music halls and grand theatres, but it was rapidly transformed after World War II by the influx of troops returning and visiting from the nearby Garden Island naval base. Today, it is dominated by bars, restaurants, cafes and nightclubs.
Since the turn of the century Kings Cross has witnessed a large number of real estate developments, both refurbishments of historic apartment buildings and the construction of new ones. A result of this development is reduced storage space and Rushcutters Self Storage, being just 1km away, provides convenient business and personal storage services to the local residents.
In 2001, the area was recognized as the most densely populated in Australia, with 20,018 people living within a 1.4 km2 area.
