South of Lichfield

Development Direction

The South of Lichfield (SOL) project involved re-working a precinct of derelict urban buildings interconnected by lanes that had been completely neglected by civic and heritage authorities and by property investors. SOL faced substantial design, financial, tenanting, heritage, earthquake strengthening and consenting hurdles. The master plan was developed drawing on international best practice and the expertise of United States based urban planners Duany Plater Zyberk. The end result won numerous accolades and awards.
