City Centre Revitalisation

Consultation has concluded

We’re trialling new short-term projects in response to our community’s call for more colour, seating and a contemporary look to our city centre.

As part of our focus on creating a City Centre for people, we’ve launched three creative wayfinding pilot projects to help people find their way around our city. Pilot projects are a way of responding to community ideas, trying out new things and quickly improving a space. We want to find out whether you think they’ve been successful.

Located in Globe Lane, Lower Crown Street, and the western end of Crown Street (between Atchison and Keira Streets), the projects include:

  • Globe Lane
    Four islands of modular seating, artificial turf and coloured paving graphics have been installed, allowing visitors to Globe Lane to sit and spend time on the ‘islands’ we have created.

  • Western Crown Street
    Titled 'The Shape of Things to Come', this wayfinding project includes four triangular coloured columns made of coloured plexi glass and steel, placed between Keira and Atchison Streets. Two of the columns incorporate seats for one.

  • Lower Crown Street
    Spotlights projected into the canopies of the trees at the western entrance to Lower Crown Street near 93 Crown Street (outside the Tourist Information Centre and Wollongong Town Hall). The lighting is programmable, and with both white lighting and coloured lighting sequences.
