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 Stage 1 has now commenced. You can view the live webcams of the site here. Stage 1 will create 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. Stage 1 will also see a new Food Pavilion built, showcasing premium NW Tasmanian products completed. A multistory 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.
Concept plans for the Waterfront Precinct are now on community consultation, with feedback welcomed up until 5pm, Wednesday 8 February 2017 through the Speak Up Devonport website.
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.
