light rail – a value proposition for newcastle
Newcastle is being recognised as an increasingly desirable city with its quality lifestyle and amenity and improved rail connectivity to Sydney. The city continues to be defined by opportunity: the closure and removal of the divisive heavy rail line, and now by the introduction of light rail. Questions are being raised around the most effective spend of light rail money to maximise uplift, increase amenity and to strategically locate the line to enhance remaking of the port city.
REALMstudios has been working with the City of Newcastle to help realise this value, building on a long association with the city through former work on the Honeysuckle Foreshore Redevelopment and now this Newcastle envisioning work.
