Urban Regeneration

We love cities and at Lendlease we’re experts at creating the best Places through Urban Regeneration.

Cities are constantly evolving and facing new challenges as their populations grow. 

Urban Regeneration allows us to help cities solve these challenges by revitalising unused and underutilised spaces and turning them into places people want to live, work and play in.

Using our integrated delivery model and global scale, we partner with cities, governments and communities to create the best shops, workplaces, apartments and public areas and to deliver spaces that are functional, enjoyable and foster genuine connection between people and place.

Lendlease is proud to be an industry leader in designing and building sustainable, innovative and vibrant city places, reflecting the commitment of our founder to create positive environmental and social impacts.

Transforming city spaces

Urban Regeneration is about revitalising urban spaces and understanding what makes great cities truly great. Such projects typically involve large-scale, mixed-used redevelopments (including apartments, workplaces, retail and public spaces) of inner-urban locations. The key is to transform areas by repurposing existing infrastructure, to deliver something that’s special and tailor-made for the diverse communities that live within them.

A fresh look at the city home

As the world’s population moves to urban areas, we see a return to the intensity and functionality of inner-city precincts. Bringing today’s city homes to life requires expert vision for affordable living, clever design, a passion for quality and deep expertise in fostering a sense of belonging and community. We offer this expertise through our city developments, which have a reputation for smarter thinking in relation to the design and construction of homes.

Urban Regeneration helps deliver better city workspaces where we can do our best thinking and collaboration. We create places where people work to make a life, not just a living. Lendlease is responding to workplace trends with innovative solutions designed to increase productivity and collaboration, encourage creativity, attract the best talent, incubate ideas and provide flexibility for a diverse workforce.

The best shopping and retail experiences go beyond merely meeting everyday needs to excite, inspire and change the way we experience places. Lendlease’s stance on the importance of restaurants, cafes, shops and services to cities is unequivocal; it’s a vital component of creating the best cities. We embrace retail as being part of the fabric of a city and an essential component of vibrant street life.
