Do you want to create great neighbourhoods in your city?
Do you want supportive communities?
Do you want inclusive places?
Do you want appealing public spaces filled with vibrant social life?
Do you want inviting buildings and thus a lively city at eye-level?
If YES, then Place-Led Development is for YOU.
The best practices show that placemaking can bring much more to citymaking. Over the last 50 years, a deep body of knowledge has developed around placemaking on the mysteries of how to create ‘great places’. It teaches us how to turn sterile spaces and areas into places that really serve as the heart of a community; where people want to linger, where a great diversity of users interact and feel at home.
This is where ‘place-led development’ comes in: taking the principles of place, human scale, social life and the city at eye level and using them as a fundament for the entire real estate or area development. After all, we don’t only want great places at the start of the project, but also in the new part of the city that is being developed in the long term.
What is Place-Led Development?
Place Led Development is real estate and area development with the aim to create great place and community.
If you want to learn more about that concept, take a look out our newly launched Place-Led Development brochure, which is a joint initiative of STIPO, HUNC and Placemaking Europe.
For more information about that concept, see the article on "Developing our cities around community and place" from the "City at Eye Level Asia" book, that you can find here.
