RPI Sponsors Property Council NSW Precincts Outlook Breakfast 2024

“Global Attraction, Local Vibe”.


The ambition for a precinct should be “Global Attraction, Local Vibe”, noted Alison Webb from Lendlease at the Property Council NSW Precincts Outlook Breakfast, on Wednesday 28 February, sponsored by RP Infrastructure.


With a theme of Partnering Better with Communities, the lineup of speakers included keynote the Hon John Graham, Special Minister of State, Minister for Roads, the Arts, Music and the Night-time Economy, Jobs and Tourism. The Minister discussed the launch of a new pilot program to support Community Innovation Precincts to encourage businesses to come together to improve their districts and the importance of creating a local identity for each precinct.


During the panel discussion, Anita Mitchell from Placemaking NSW emphasised the need for the precinct vision to be ‘baked into’ the Project Delivery Agreement, flexibility in the planning process and the government’s role in reducing investment risk.


Coinciding with the breakfast yesterday was the launch of the NSW PCA Precincts Committee’s paper on Precinct Collaboration – A Roadmap for achieving greater economic and community benefit. Read the report here:


Community is at the heart of great precinct development, and it is core to our purpose at RPI. For almost 30 years, we have been helping our clients provide infrastructure that meets the needs of their communities while also integrating with the greater community. Our experience in placemaking is fundamental to the insights we bring our clients in the built environment.


As a sponsor of the breakfast, alongside series sponsor Ethos Urban, we would like to thank everyone who attended, as well as the Property Council NSW for organising the event.
