Planning Institute of Australia PIA has announced the winners of the 2015 Australia Award for Urban Design, with Western Australian projects and programs taking two of five main awards.
Pleasingly one of those was in Fremantle with Fremantle’s Victoria Quay Enabling Precinct Plan taking the award for small-scale policies, programs and concepts.
It aims to unlock the potential of Vic Quay, Fremantle train Station and Pioneer Park precincts of Fremantle Port to transform them. Well done to the Project Team – CODA, Fremantle Ports, Allerding & Associates, and Creating Communities.
Brookfield Place, took out the main gong – the award for a large scale delivered outcome. The project transformed a block left vacant for 30 years into an inviting and engaging public realm.
