So, what makes a 'Place'?

“A good city is like a good party. People stay longer than necessary because they are enjoying themselves.” – Jan Gehl

Is it the paving? The architecture? No – a “Place” is much more than that.

“Place” is where people congregate to spend time together. Where, we meet our friends, share experiences, have a conversation and feel a social connection.
Great places are enlivened by people. People who love to visit and spend time there together. People decide what makes great places.

Our long held vision – “to create the best places” puts people first. It ensures our projects succeed and assets remain a destination of choice.

The best places are enjoyed every day, not just when there is an event.

As technology continues to develop at an ever-accelerating rate, where we go and how we spend our time will also continue to change.
Shopping centres, offices and residential apartments will become less about functional real estate and more about experience and connection.
We will have more choice on where we want to go. Our shopping time will be our leisure time, our workplaces will have to provide inspiration, and our homes lifestyle.

At Lendlease, we’re shaping city skylines, creating iconic structures, breathing new life into forgotten precincts and creating places and spaces for generations to enjoy.
