Breakfast Forum: Urban renewal opportunities for the sustainable future of Perth
It is estimated that close to 85 per cent of Australia’s population will live in our cities by 2030, and the City of Perth is one of our nation’s fastest growing urban centres. While urban growth in Western Australia’s capital will inevitably create challenges, rapid growth is also set to create great opportunities - for business, for job creation, for sustainability, for the community.
Great international cities from Tokyo to Paris and New York have all embraced apartment living for the opportunities that this approach to residential accommodation offers for the creation of vibrant, affordable lifestyles that are low-impact, efficient and sustainable. In short, well-designed urban communities that combine higher-density residential solutions with well-planned and highly accessible amenities are a winning formula for the people and the environment.
Join the GBCA and our panel of property industry and sustainable development professionals on Wednesday 5 September 2012 as we explore how the lessons learned from the implementation of urban renewal and high-density housing in the international context can be used to inform and shape emerging opportunities, and allow us to create a productive, vibrant and sustainable Perth.
