Perth is on a journey. Over the past few years, we have seen key projects start to transform our city into a vibrant, active and engaging urban environment for residents and visitors. As Perth continues to grow and evolve, it is important that we continue to seek opportunities to repurpose spaces that deliver more interactive, connected communities.
John Burton, Managing Director- Urban Regeneration at Lendlease will set the scene, sharing insights into Lendlease’s integrated delivery model highlighting best practice in urban regeneration across the globe. What are the global trends in urban regeneration? What are the opportunities for Perth, now and into the future? And what does Perth need to be mindful of?
Sean Henriques, CEO at MRA, will then share a case study of revitalising Perth’s heart: the Yagan Square experience. Sean will share insights into an iconic regeneration project that has been internationally recognised and offer his perspective on the MRA’s work across the city more broadly, including Elizabeth Quay, East Perth Power Station & Scarborough Beach. Sean will also outline future plans, bearing in mind the potential merger between LandCorp & MRA and consider what’s next for the MRA.
Following these keynote presentations, John and Sean will join the discussion surrounding the issues and opportunities when it comes to urban renewal projects in Perth. What changes to the planning system would need to occur to facilitate more projects of this nature? What are the unique challenges urban regeneration projects face? What sites around Perth are prime for major redevelopment? How can we leverage private sector investment?
Join the WA Development Industry for an inspiring and interesting conversation on successful Urban Renewal projects completed, and what is to come.
