"Mackay City Centre is the destination of choice for people of all ages to live, work and recreate in a vibrant, diverse environment based on the city’s unique mix of physical and cultural experiences." - The vision for Mackay’s City Centre
ClientMackay Regional Council as a sub-consultant to Deicke Richards
Mackay City Centre is the centre serving a growing regional population of over 170,000. To ensure the region, which contributes significantly to Queensland’s economic success, has access to the services and facilities of a modern city centre, Council seeks to address improved infrastructure, better pedestrian connectivity, traffic management, street and public domain enhancements. The vision for Mackay’s City Centre, developed collaboratively with stakeholders and the Mackay community, foresees:
"Mackay City Centre is the destination of choice for people of all ages to live, work and recreate in a vibrant, diverse environment based on the city’s unique mix of physical and cultural experiences".
Our role was to prepare a Public Realm Manual as the reference document guiding design outcomes and public realm quality throughout the City Centre. The manual identifies required public realm treatments and standards to be applied to ensure that all future development produces a coordinated, high quality city centre environment.
