The Market District - Shaping the future of an Iconic Area
Human interaction and collaboration will drive the future. A trend towards having multiple places of work rather than a single fixed address will take place.
Work, housing and recreation will be integrated in physically compact urban areas that provide a mix of housing options within walking distance of shops and offices. These urban places will be connected to efficient public transport, and high-speed internet.
Smart technologies in buildings and the Internet of Things will provide greater flexibility in people's lives and improved efficiency for industry. A panel of architects, urban designers, and/or consultants that have had a hand in bring Tonsley Innovation District to life.
Join David Bailey RPIA (Fellow), the City’s market district advisor to hear how this iconic area is being carefully shaped for the future, from the redevelopment of the Central Market Arcade to the reinvigoration of Chinatown. The tour will start at the GPO on Franklin Street and wind its way through the streets and market, ending with drinks and nibbles at the Metropolitan Hotel.
