Liverpool City Centre Revitalisation Strategy

Liverpool City Centre Revitalisation Strategy

Liverpool is a designated Regional City under the Draft Metropolitan Strategy 2031, and Liverpool City Council has identified the revitalisation of its City Centre as a key priority within its Community Strategic Plan. The aim of revitalisation is to encourage the development of a well-integrated and thriving city centre that attracts a greater level of private investment as well as residents, workers and visitors making maximum use of the city. 

Five key projects were identified by Council, and Architectus was commissioned to deliver two; Gateways to the City and Georges River Connections.

Through close consultation with Council, community, and local stakeholders, a series of integrated urban design strategies and concept designs were developed to provide guidance to Council on how to achieve its objectives and priorities. Key elements of the Georges River Connections Strategy include a new concourse extension from the rail station, providing better access to the riverfront, and a comprehensive upgrade of the riverfront parklands and approaches to the City Centre. This project seeks to increase the visual and physical connection of the City Centre to the Georges River and reinforce its role as the key cultural destination for south western Sydney.

Key elements of the City Gateways concepts include a ‘Green Oasis’ entrance to the City comprising a comprehensive large-scale tree planting strategy on approaches to the City Centre, gateway markers, lighting, wayfinding and public art opportunities and built form recommendations at key entry sites and along frontages to the Hume Highway. This project provides the opportunity to improve the presentation and arrival experience of the City Centre, reflecting its values and attributes that make it unique and befitting a RegionalCity in south western Sydney.
