LIVING CITY will transform Devonport through the creation of new retail, business/service and waterfront precincts focused on highlighting our tourism, arts, food and services.
It's a project that will benefit the entire NW region and is estimated to generate $250 million in investment over a 5-10 year construction period and provide up to 830 on-going jobs.
Construction of the Civic Precinct (Stage 1) has now commenced. You can view the live webcams of the site here. The Civic Precinct will include a new multi-purpose civic building which is home to a state-of-the-art LINC, Service Tasmania, café, Council offices and 800 seat convention centre. A new Food Pavilion will showcase the region's premium produces through restaurants, a distillery and market spaces. A multi-storey car park servicing the whole of the CBD is also part of Stage 1.
Stage 1 is the catalyst for the project as it frees up the land necessary to complete the Waterfront Precinct and Retail Precincts in the future. Stage 1 also includes two of the major tourist drawcards, the food pavilion 'Providore Place' and conference centre.
It has now been more than three years since Devonport City Council adopted the LIVING CITY Master Plan. To learn more about what has happened with LIVING CITY in that time download LIVING CITY - Three Years On.(PDF, 513KB)
LIVING CITY is more than new buildings. LIVING CITY provides new opportunities, new tourist drawcards and new experiences.
Devonport City Council is committed to LIVING CITY and setting our City on a path for the future.
