The project encompasses both the rehabilitation of the façades of 114 existing buildings – including 54 of particular interest – and the creation of a public cultural space between the national theatre and opera house. The project was developed through community consultations involving 1,000 invitations, 300 hours of meetings, 200 agreements and numerous plans and drawings. Owners were encouraged to collaborate in the renovation process and maintain their buildings thereafter – favouring preservation over demolition. The rejuvenation of the façades has transformed the street’s appearance. Since it was completed, the scheme’s success in regenerating the district is evident in the establishment of nine new cafés, six restaurants, a bakery, two theatres and a boutique hotel.
