Partnering with Quintessential Equity the Civic Precinct
will include 2,600 square metres of active public space, as well as street
front retail, café and co-working space.
Expected to be completed in 2022, the Civic Precinct will
be the our new central workplace, bringing together our central Geelong
workforce from seven locations. The precinct will also include a second
commercial office building, owned by Quintessential Equity, which will house another
900 city workers.
Community feedback from our first stage of engagement told us that our community want safe, active and
accessible public space which connects the precinct to its surrounds, as well
as pedestrian access, cycling facilities, and more family friendly activities.
We need your help to shape what this looks
like. Community members can take part by completing a short online survey or attending a drop-in session
next week at our public display at the Revitalising Central Geelong shopfront,
108 Moorabool Street. The survey will close 31 January, 2020.
- Tuesday 17 December, 12pm – 1.30pm, Revitalising Central Geelong, 108 Moorabool Street
- Thursday 19 December 12pm – 1.30pm, Revitalising Central Geelong, 108 Moorabool Street
Community feedback will be used to shape the design
outcomes for the public space, and help create an active, vibrant Civic
Quotes attributed to Mayor Stephanie Asher
We heard some excellent suggestions from the community
earlier this year, which helped the development of the Civic Precinct concept
design we unveiled in October.
The themes included making the precinct as sustainable as
possible, honouring Geelong’s history and heritage – especially our Aboriginal
heritage, and creating active, safe and accessible public spaces.
We now want the community’s input again as we work on the
detailed design of the public space – so please have your say and help us
create something everyone will enjoy.
Quotes attributed to Cr Peter Murrihy, Chair, Civic and
Central Geelong portfolio:
This is a chance for the community to play a part in the design of what
will become a very distinctive and prominent part of our CBD.
With over 2,600 square metres of open public space as part
of the concept design, there are huge opportunities to include unique features
and create a place where people love to meet. So please fill in the survey and
give us your best and brightest ideas.
