Garema Place & City Walk

Garema Place, City Walk, Petrie Plaza and Ainslie Place

The City Renewal Authority is leading the ACT Government’s program to revitalise central Canberra, encouraging greater social interaction, economic growth and diversity of activity. Giving Civic a new beat is an important part of reaching this vision, and achieving it will require the cooperation of, and input from, all sectors of industry, government and all Canberrans.

The goal of this project is to create a Civic that is a greater place to live, work and play and returned to its rightful place as the beating heart of our great city. The City Renewal Authority is developing a place plan and public realm design for the renewal of the precinct. We will look at all the elements which will go into making it not just a good place, but a great place. This project is not the starting point. Over many years, people have contributed many ideas for a revitalised Civic. We have reviewed this feedback and incorporated it into the foundation of our work.
