Sydenham Master Plan
Sydenham’s close proximity to the CBD has become a double edge sword in the post-earthquake planning process and the question at the top of the agenda in the master planning workshop was; how can we improve the development economics for this main street rebuild, whilst at the same time maintaining the uniqueness of the area so it does not compete with the CBD? Pocock Design Environment focused on the design of key open spaces, streetscapes and the use of temporary landscapes to help Sydenham transition into a better future.
