The Five Dock Town Centre provides a focus for the commercial, civic and community life of this part of Sydney’s Inner West. Studio GL staff, working with Arup and Hill PDA, provided the core urban design expertise on this comprehensive urban design study that aimed to improve the long term economic success of this centre.
We undertook a comprehensive review of exiting policy documents, created a detailed site analysis, facilitated engaging community and stakeholder consultation, developed options for public domain improvements and prepared the final strategic framework and detailed implementation plan. The project was awarded a NSW PIA Planning Excellence Award in 2014. The analysis and recommendations report can be viewed online at: www.canadabay.nsw.gov.au/five-dock-town-centre.html
