LIVING CITY Devonport
LIVING CITY is the largest urban renewal project ever undertaken in regional Tasmania.
It is a unique opportunity for Devonport.
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.
Expressions of interest are now open for the LIVING CITY Waterfront Precinct hotel development opportunity. Find out more here.
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.
