Cities are constantly evolving and facing new challenges as their populations grow.
At Lendlease we love cities and are experts at creating the best places. Through Urban Regeneration we help cities solve some of their challenges by revitalising unused and underutilised spaces and turning them into places people want to live, work and play in.
Through our proven delivery model and global scale, our development team partner with cities, governments and communities to create versatile, blended use places that offer positive experiences and better meet the needs of people working and living there. Our aim is to always deliver spaces that are functional, enjoyable and foster genuine connection between people and place.
With $121 billion of urban regeneration projects in our global pipeline we are 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 and successful Placemaking are about revitalising urban spaces and understanding how the physical interacts with the social to give everyone a great place experience. Lendlease 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 and carefully creating new elements that will 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 continues to move to urban areas, we see a further enhanced focus on the intensity and functionality of inner-city districts. 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 capability 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.
Wider place assets
We understand the importance of the experiences people have when they use our ground floor spaces and public realm. We think beyond retail, cafes, bars and restaurants, carefully considering all the elements that create an attractive street life for our occupiers, residents and the wider community that surrounds us. From culture to community, healthcare to leisure, we build spaces that adapt to the needs of those who use our places.
