Mixed Use Precincts & Placemaking Summit

Investment, development, construction and design strategies for better cities and communities | 28th August 2024 - Doltone House Hyde Park, Sydney

ABOUT THE EVENT

Our major cities are at a crossroads. Most are struggling with congestion, housing affordability, and inequitable access to infrastructure, amenity and services.

The good news is that there is a way to make sure the future of Australian cities is bright. We can do this by focusing on the creation of mixed-use precincts with placemaking at their core. These precincts will drive connections through a concentration of activity and people and provide vibrant and productive places where people will want to live, work and play. 

The Mixed-Use Precinct & Placemaking Summit taking place 28th August in Sydney will bring together developers, landlords, investors, city government, urban planners and the AEC sector to discuss successful mixed-use precinct models and placemaking strategies.

Chair’s opening remarks

Mixed use development has emerged as the new development paradigm in today’s cities. However to work successfully, we need to move beyond the bricks to be real estate sociologists, to build community through common spaces and shared experiences.

KEYNOTE: Built for connection - Mixed-use developments that create sustainable communities

Mixed use development has emerged as the new development paradigm in today’s cities. However to work successfully, we need to move beyond the bricks to be real estate sociologists, to build community through common spaces and shared experiences.

Anita Mitchell, Chief Executive, Placemaking NSW
09:30

The power of social - social impact as a strategy to connect communities, create place and drive value

A core value proposition of mixed-use developments is community creation and enrichment, but it’s not enough to design, deliver and forget  – it’s the ongoing operational and placemaking strategies that defines the continued value of the asset. Alison will share how Lendlease has harnessed social impact as a strategy to connect communities and create meaningful places across their portfolio.

TRANSFORMATIVE INVESTMENTS

11:10

Creating, measuring and reporting the social value of precincts through the placemaking strategy

Developing a metric to measure social value is difficult and ultimately relies on long-term observations and engagement with spaces. Social value can only be properly defined and measured by engaging with those directly and indirectly impacted by a project throughout its full lifecycle.

PRECINCT INVESTMENT – Strategies that build engaged communities, improve social connectivity, and support sustainable asset value

Mixed-use developments, including by combining public and private uses, create closer-knit communities and enhanced convenience and are successfully reinventing the concept of urban working and living.

Tom Roche, Executive Director, Property, Plenary Group
11:50

CASE STUDY: Investment strategies for mixed use and the role of the precinct plan in the social impact assessment

Developers and long-term investors can have different views on value. For a pension fund with a social value mandate, activating successful placemaking for community value is an essential aspect of the asset’s value. But how do you assess the social impact value of a precinct placemaking strategy?

Simon Furness, Director of Property & Housing, Uniting

PRECINCT INNOVATION

UNLOCKING ASSET VALUE

14:50

Case study: Creating a mixed-use precinct within an urban renewal development at scale

The NSW Government plans to renew the land in and around the Central Station transport interchange known as Central Precinct. Central Precinct has been an important site for transport operations for over 150 years. We learn how the development team is driving social value with commercial benefits.

Afternoon Break

15:50

CASE STUDY: Creating shared spaces that create commercial value and engage the community

Local governments have different understandings of what it means to develop and steward community spaces. Although some departments may define placemaking as brick-and-mortar development or urban design, others may consider programming and activities as key to creating shared spaces.

Katie Anderson, Director Community & Culture, Randwick City Council
16:10

PANEL: Developing operational models for activating sustainable engaging precinct placemaking

Creating a mixed use development with a distinctive sense of place—rich in art and culture will certainly attract people. The issue is does it enhance the value of real estate?
