Studio GL have been asked to explore a strategic direction for the development of the Nowra Riverfront as an entertainment and leisure precinct. The area is in a prominent gateway location with high amenity provided by the river and natural surrounds and provides a significant opportunity to shape the character of Nowra into the future and strengthen the town’s role as the civic, community, tourism and recreational hub for the region. NSW Road and Maritime Services (RMS) is currently proposing a second river crossing (a new bridge) west of the existing Shoalhaven Bridge, which will have a significant impact on the precinct.
Studio GL have been reviewing previous studies and will provide a summary of the opportunities and constraints of the precinct and then develop planning and design principles specific to the Riverfront Precinct.
Client: Shoalhaven City Council
Project date: 2015 – 2018
